Foursquare Tips

  • Pork burger + truffle fries are killer! Local products focused. Keep it up Thad!
  • Ask rusty to make you something special from behind the bar
  • I once had an idea to reinterpret all of Bacaro's menu in taco form and put a cart outside their window and call it "Tacaro". Financing fell through. Bummer, dude.
  • The food is amazing and they have the most wonderful staff. Especially Tiffany (:
  • trust the bartender but try the Palistorti
  • Have the mussels with a bottle of Gorilla Wine Sonoma Red Zinfandel.
  • Come on Mondays= Market Mondays.. $45 - 6 course tasting menu. You will not be disappointed!!
  • This is not a Mediterranean restaurant.
  • Try the venison lasagna w/ a bottle of 07 St. Joseph.
  • Try the grilled octopus! Fantastic, interesting dishes.
  • Best restaurant in champaign. Good for special occasions or trying the tasting menus
  • Wonderful wine selection and the menu was seasonal, fresh and perfect portions. They also offer a tasting menu.
  • If you buy wine to go it's 50% off!
  • Same great staff, etc. but half price wine by the glass now on Wednesdays. Sundays now burger night. Delicious.
  • On Sunday nights wine by the glass is half price. Great way to explore if you aren't familiar with wine... or if you are! Ask for advice too.. staff are very knowledgeable.
  • Best fine dining in Champaign!
  • Braised Oxtail crostini was amazing!
  • One cannot go wrong with a selection from the pasta section of the menu.
  • Tip Marty! He's the best!!
