New to the Loop’s food scene, this cantina uses a Missouri oak wood-burning hearth to put a spin on traditional Latin dishes. The crowd tends to skew a bit older than the typical college student swarm on the Loop, so if you’re looking for something a little more “grown-up” you’ve come to the right place.
Dark and cozy with a rustic-industrial aesthetic, this is the perfect place to take a date--and the strong drinks certainly don’t hurt either. Make a reservation if you plan on coming with your whole crew, or grab a front row seat to the action at the bar or chef’s counter.
Creative cocktails and delectable guacamole arepas.
The house-made corn tortillas are hand crafted with corn imported from Mexico--in other words, executive chef Mike Randolph takes every ingredient seriously. Público stands out among the Loop’s taco options for its sophisticated atmosphere and its diverse non-taco options, ranging from ceviche to grilled duck breast.
