Quiote - Chicago
Quiote, from food truck pioneer Dan Salls, the man behind The Salsa Truck, is part restaurant, part mezcal bar and part cafe, all collectively serving as is an homage to the regional flavors of Mexico, the agave plant and the producers and artisans behind it all. Along with its subterranean mezcal bar, Todos Santos, Quiote's main-floor dining room features contemporary takes on Mexica-inspired cuisine, utilizing local and seasonal ingredients as the foundation.
During dinner, shareable dishes and snacks include mussels Veracruz, fried oyster tacos, avocado salad, chicken en mole, crab tostadas and bone marrow with salsa macha and cilantro. Brunch is served on weekends, featuring items like baked pancakes with burnt cinnamon, rajas tacos, biscuits with chile honey, pig ear chilaquiles and fried chicken tortas.
