Foursquare Tips

  • Tried the Chefs tasting menu, most memorable were the grilled Brussels sprouts & the paella. The desserts were a miss though, churros was oily, orange flan too sweet. Service was ok.
  • Great spot for non tapas Spanish
  • Really delicious vegan and vegetarian dishes upon request. The plant-based paella was filled with veggies and sticky rice. So good!
  • Good dinner place
  • I went with Salero because the cooking is more ambitious, the Spanish menu (Midwest inspired by Spain is how Aubin puts it) is more of the moment, and I love the space.
  • Excelente lugar, buen ambiente, buena comida, buenos vinos. Recomendado
  • The stylish, softly lit bar at Spanish restaurant Salero offers a wide array of creative cocktails, making it easy to sink into the industrial and rustic-chic vibe.
  • Churro Y Chocolate are amazing. Fresh churros with whipped-salted chocolate, espresso pudding and creamy milk jam.
  • Flan is a must try! So so good!
  • Everything was delicious but don't miss the croquetas de jamon from the tapas bar menu. Maybe the best croquetas I have ever had in Chicago. The only negative thing: wines way too expensive
  • This Spanish restaurant rings in its first summer with a wood-trimmed sidewalk cafe, a rustic counterpart to the white-on-white cafe at adjacent Blackbird.
  • The chorizo stuffed quail is phenomenal. Chorizo is made in house and the tossed spinach with pine nuts and golden raisins is a lovely side dish. The churros are a great dessert.
  • Might be the best foie gras I've eaten in Chicago.
  • The churros at Salero are a must. Piped and fried to order, the ephemeral ribbons are 99.2 percent air, held together by a miracle of physics with the crispiest gossamer exterior.
  • The grilled octopus was great. Overall everything was fresh and had nice flavors. Don't get the cheese dessert plate if you ordered the beet salad for appetizers, they are basically the same thing.
  • Don't come here if you're in a rush. Service is incredibly slow. We waited over 30 minutes between appetizers and entrees. Otherwise, try the quail and the sweetbread. We're still waiting on venison.
  • Venison was amazing. Veal sweetbreads too. And seriously - I've been to Spain a few times and I've never had churros this good. And the flan...to die for.
  • Grilled Octopus was phenom! Leave room for churros with a salty chocolatey-espresso-y dip.
  • Veal sweetbreads were amazing. Second only to that is the grilled octopus. Small portions though FYI.
  • The paella was great and so were the drinks. Great service and friendly staff.
