La Taberna Tapas brings spanish-inspired tapas to Chicago’s University Village neighborhood


Named after the casual corner eateries in Spain, La Taberna features the flavors of Spain’s Basque region, Latin America, Mexico and the Mediterranean. The menu is executed by the culinary team of Chef Enrique Cortés.

La Taberna offers such signature dishes as Croquettas de Pollo (chicken croquettes with chipotle aioli), Empanadas de Picadillo (four ground beef turnovers with raisins, queso fresco and chile ancho sauce garnished with avocado mousse and radish), Vieras Salteadas (sauteed bay scallops, chistorra and Arbequina olives served with a creamy saffron sauce), Zarzuela (seafood stew with shrimp, squid, mussels and tomato-seafood broth) and Salmon (marinated cedar plank with seasonal vegetables and chile ancho sauce).

La Taberna is open late for dinner nightly and lunch is served Friday through Sunday. Check out our calendar for special events, live performances and complimentary dance lessons.
