With Pan-Latin Influences and a Robata Grill, Barrio Will Defy Genres
The food comes from a Top Chef alum whose resume includes a kosher taqueria. From the same Japanese-Mexican chef who conceived the all-kosher taqueria comes Chicago’s first Mexican/pan-Latin (with a touch of American) restaurant with a robata grill. Really. It’s called Barrio (65 W. Kinzie St., River North), and it will open this summer as the latest project from Lucas Stoioff and David Rekhson of DineAmic group. The duo also operates Siena Tavern (which is in the same building as Barrio), Bar Siena, Prime & Provisions, and Public House.
