Dos Urban Cantina - Chicago
Happy hour occurs every Wednesday at this Mexican-focused eatery in Logan Square. That's an ideal way to sample the seasonal menu at this highly praised destination that's been dubbed “the most important Mexican restaurant since Topolobampo” by Chicago Tribune restaurant critic Phil Vettel.
Most dishes are meant to share, starting with grilled and charred vegetables, ceviche and street-style corn. The bar/lounge area is a great place to enjoy them as it's as large as the main dining room. Its centerpiece is a lengthy communal table.
For those wanting a more formal sit-down dining experience, the main dining room offers booth seating and conventional two- and four-top tables. That's an opportunity for guests to comfortably sample Executive Chefs Brian and Jennifer Enyart's dishes. They met and married while working at Rick Bayless's Frontera Grill and Topolobampo respectively, and continue their passion for upscale Mexican cuisine at this neighborhood fave.
