3. Ronero

738 West Randolph St. Chicago, IL 60661

Ronero” or a “Maestro Ronero” by definition, is someone who has mastered the art of distilling rum. The menu is meant to take guests on a journey through South America – highlighting flavors from Colombia, Brazil, Peru and Argentina. Their space pulls inspiration from the Art Deco era mixed with rustic Colonial to emulate the perfect Latin American backdrop. Refined yet casual, we encourage patrons to stay late as an evening at Ronero never ends right after dinner…
