PARTY: Tavernita Grand Opening
VENUE: Tavernita | 151 W. Erie
DATE: Wed, Feb 1
THE LURE: Sexy. Sultry. Spicy. No, we’re not talking about your Valentine’s Date. It’s Tavernita, that hot little spot in River North that’s just pulsating with flavor—both on your plate and in the atmosphere. And for the opening celebration, Chef and partner Ryan Poli turned up the Latin Love dial, ushering in a wide-eyed crowd who salivated at savory small plates like Shrimp Brochette and Frites Bravas. Kegged cocktails and wine from the acclaimed Tippling Brothers proved another highlight. Still want more? Ryan Poli is serving up his Escalivada recipe on The G&F Blog as well as Tavernita’s simple (but intoxicating!) Love Also Rises cocktail. >>
