#1 Barrio

The restaurant group that brought the city Siena Tavern, Prime & Provisions, and more, will open Barrio this summer introducing a creative take on traditional Mexican fare with pan-Latin and American influences. The 6,000-square-foot restaurant will be located in the heart of River North, at the prominent corner of Clark and Kinzie Street. Helmed by Executive Chef Katsuji Tanabe, of Top Cheffame, the restaurant will combine the quality and charm of scratch-made Mexican fare with the vibrancy of a bustling bar and lounge.
The menu will include playful twists on classic Mexican street food as well as American gastropub dishes with a Latin including the Guajillo Glazed Berkshire Pork Belly and Grilled Diver Scallop with poblano-uni relish.
