Best Spanish food in Chicago

August 2018

1. Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!

2024 N Halsted St. Chicago, IL 60614

Sotelino felt that the city of Chicago needed a taste of Spain in the restaurant scene, and he took great pride in representing the culture and gastronomy of his home to the people of Chicago. He went to great lengths to achieve authenticity, even arranging for a wood-burning oven to be flown in from Madrid. Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! has made tapas, the hot and cold appetizers of Spain, an integral element of Chicago’s dining scene.

2. Mercat a la Planxa

638 S Michigan Ave. Chicago, IL 60605

Mercat’s ambitious menu captivates diners with its masterful remix of authentic Spanish cuisine with an emphasis in the Catalonian region. From street food-styled starters to meal-sized classics, rice and grilled specialties from our planxa grill, each dish leads diners to another stage along Mercat’s culinary adventure. Complementing the rich cultural experience is an extensive, yet finely curated selection of cava, sangria, wine and cocktail creations.

3. Tapas Valencia

1530 S State St. Chicago, IL 60605
