Opened all the way back in 2019 (remember those days?), this hotshot speakeasy-inspired hang brings modern Latinx flair and top-notch cocktailing to a neighborhood traditionally lacking in such mixological offerings. They’ve got DJs and brunch. They’ve got cocktails and micheladas. They’ve got tacos and Mexican snacks. More importantly, they’ve got a clear winner on their hands.
This newish kid on the South Side block has officially taken over departed neighborhood institution Monnie Burke’s as Pilsen’s latest Latin-inspired charmer. The patio is even more welcoming this time, a mass of exposed brick, soft lighting, and rustic exposed beams setting the tone while the poured cement floor radiates heat beneath diners’ feet. Food-wise, you’re looking at equally warm and cozy options like Concha Toast jazzed up with tres leches cream and strawberry-mezcal compote, nachos laced with cheddar and mango-braised beef, and Steak and Eggs topped with snappy chimichurri.
