Amelia's Mestizo Grill
Recipes from South-Central Mexico inspire the chefs at Amelia's Mestizo Grill, but the menu also incorporates familiar Old-World flavors. The spirit of innovation undergirds their commitment to traditional Latin-American staples, with dishes such as the grilled pork tenderloin with roasted quince that the Chicago Reader claimed, "could have come out of a far more pretentious kitchen." Stuffed poblano peppers arrive with a sherry-pecan sauce, and smoky chipotle peppers add a distinctive kick to the Mediterranean-tinged flavors of the grilled rack of lamb and potato gratin.
Coming back to its roots once again, the restaurant's dining room embodies a down-to-earth ambiance, complete with exposed brickwork and simple wooden chairs. A red accent wall adds a splash of color to the space, as do vibrant paintings of flowers, children, and Mexico's first rainbow.
