Executive Chef Armando Gonzalez of Las Palmas creates a menu of upscale Mexican fare bejeweled with colorful margaritas and whimsical décor that caught Centerstage’s attention. Guests can pile into booths under vintage posters or gather around white-linen-covered tables, then dig into chunky guacamole ($8) mashed tableside with lime and a customized level of heat, from mild to spontaneous combustion. Barbacoa de cordero ($18) sits a cut of braised lamb with guajillo peppers and avocado leaves atop mole sauce and a crispy corn arepa. Vegetarian options such as the enchayotadas ($16)—vegetable-stuffed corn tortillas under jalapeño salsa and cheese—garnered the praise of Time Out Chicago. Diners can select from seven specialty margaritas made from house-squeezed juices, house-made mixes, and an agave plant’s heroic sacrifice.
Executive Chef Armando Gonzalez crafts an inventive Mexican menu of ceviche, mole, and enchiladas, enjoyed by diners around a stylish bar's half-melted candles and Frida Kahlo-esque paintings, as described by Centerstage. Staff members mix up chunky guacamole—available in customized heat levels—tableside as bartenders occupy this whimsical space, crafting tasty concoctions such as sangria and margaritas with freshly-squeezed juices and housemade mixes. Local and international artwork lines the wall of the eatery's bright, sunny window-lined atrium, where servers deposit tortas and meaty tacos upon white tablecloth-topped tables. Mexican feasts can also be enjoyed outdoors on an expansive patio, where the sun can shine upon the upturned faces of diners or leashed pet plants.
