Mercat a la Planxa

Mercat a la Planxa - Chicago

The historic Blackstone hotel gets a major makeover, and with it the arrival of Jose Garces' tapas bar specializing in Catalan cuisine. Small plate items range from cut-to-order charcuterie and cheeses to fresh seafood, steaks and chops, with an emphasis on meats and seafood served a la planxa, or grilled-to-order.

Groups who order three days in advance can also feast on whole, roast pig.

The bar offers seasonally inspired sangrias, Spanish-styled cocktails and martinis plus an extensive collection of Spanish cavas, wines, ciders and beer.
