Tanta Chicago
Peruvian food in a contemporary setting
Peruvian · River North · $$$
The Zagat Review
"Justifiably popular" for "memorable" , "amazingly delicious" Peruvian fare and "terrific, unusual cocktails" (the "ceviches and pisco sours are a must" ), this River North "gem" from chef Gastón Acurio also rates for "fabulous" , "attentive" service; the "colorful" setting is "full of energy" (and "noise" ) so some prefer the "beautiful" , if "hard-to-get-into" open-air rooftop.

This was an amazing place and an amazing experience! Our waitress was very helpful with the menu and suggestions. I spoke with the manager (myself being a restaurant manager I always like to speak with them) he was very kind and got us a dessert on the house. Very unexpected, very guest focused kind gesture. I recommend it at anyone in the area. My wife and myself will be back the next time in Chicago.

Wow. If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I would. One of the best meals I've ever had. Food was absolutely bursting with flavor. Everything tasted so fresh. Best sangria I've ever tasted. Service was excellent, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Ambiance was perfect as well. Prices were very reasonable for how good the food and drinks were, and the location. I will be back. Many times.
