Spicing it up a bit Mar 04, 2008
This restaurant ties with Grand Lux Cafe (see my other review) for my favorite restaurant in Chicago. I would have to say that Latin flavors are my favorite and I have tried many of the wonderful places we have in Chicago---El Nuevo always stands out on top. I do get the same dish every time I go here -- Mole enchilladas filled with fried plantains--but I try my friends' dishes and have tried other appetizers. The margaritas are GREAT. They have about 7 different kinds to choose from with different liquors to make them special. I've gone here for my last three birthdays. I always feel special and they can accomodate large groups. They have a small patio out back which is great for a warm summer night. The restaurant itself is pretty small and intimate...which is nice. The same wait/barstaff has worked there for a couple of years, which is also nice to see.
