Cafe Iberico

Mike and I spend the day enjoying Chicago, we did some shopping on Michigan Ave and hit Nordstrom Rack where I found a pair of Fendi sunglasses originally $240 for $50 and then we were on to Loehman’s where I found another great deal of beautiful gold Via Spiga shoes for $50 instead of their normal $220. It was the day of the deals!

Our friend Mark from New York (who we went to Italy with) met us for a Tapas lunch at Cafe Iberico which is in edge of the River North neighborhood and has been open since 1992. A pretty good run for a Chicago restaurant. We started with a some white sangria and then the small plate ordering begun. A plate of mixed meat and manchego, ,mushrooms, grilled octopus with potatoes, shrimp in garlic and olive oil and some potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce.

This is my favorite way to eat, little nibbles of unique foods. You never get too full but you never leave hungry! Another must at a tapas restaurant is dessert, there are always unique flavors. We got a crepe filled with ice cream and a fresh strawberry syrup. Very tasty!!
