Foursquare Tips

  • Great lunch & brunch items. Excellent lamb chops!
  • Mercat a la Planxa, the Catalan restaurant from Jose Garces, offers exciting tapas dishes and delicious Jamon Serrano.
  • Bacon wrapped dates!
  • Chef Jose Garcess colorful Catalan place pairs park views with a menu of delicious ambition. Bodega N. 5 downstairs is a tasty bargain. Green Guide Editor
  • The Catalan Express is $18 and includes choice of First Course, Second Course and soda.
  • This place is seriously off-the-hook. Unbelievable...go here. Just get the tasting menu and let the chef take care of you. Sangria along the way is a must.
  • Chicago's very own Iron Chef!!
  • Do the Chef's Tasting Menu! Your taste buds will not be disappointed with this culinary journey!
  • show the special!
  • Get the tasting menu... incredible!
  • The words I put here cannot do justice to how good the food is. Just go.
  • I have suggested Mercat to many friends -- and they all loved their experiences. The biggest hit: the avocado martini.
  • Start your day off right with the Blackstone Benedict (eggs Benedict with truffled hollandaise). Head downstairs and grab Starbucks for coffee, though - $4 is too much for diner coffee.
  • The Ensalada Verde is fresh and delicious. A great early evening snack.
  • It is inside the Blackstone Hotel!
  • Hidden Gem within the BlackStone Hotel on South Michigan. Great interior, awesome Sangria, and best bacon-wrapped dates in the city!
  • $1.99 Sangria for checking into 4sq. Also, ask the hostess if there's a Iron Chef menu: 5 tapas tasting for $35!! It's not always offered.
  • $8 for all u can drink mimosa/bloody mary/sangria bar 4 brunch sounds like a deal even though I don't drink-womp womp!
  • 'jamon Iberico' best in the city at Mercat
  • Absolutely outstanding tapas restaurant at the Renaissance Blackstone hotel. Highly recommend the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing.
