Upscale Casual

El Che Bar is a Latin-local restaurant whose heart is the hearth. It will feature Argentine-inspired Midwestern cuisine in a casual, urban nomadic setting in the West Loop.
Every item on the menu is touched by fire, from prime cuts of locally sourced meats to a robust selection of seasonal vegetables. Preparations are elemental and unfussy—smoked, seared, roasted or grilled. Vegetables are served charred, skin-on; adornments quietly nod to South America without losing sight of the Midwest.. Our beverage program emphasizes esoteric wines, artisanal draft beers, and an ambitious cocktail program featuring South and Central American Spirits.
The setting is casual and warm, luxurious yet rough-hewn. Worn walls, colonial pastels, dusty leather, and traditional patterns are juxtaposed with contemporary elements (metals, marble). Our open kitchen imparts a steady hum. Lighting is low; the soundtrack is mysterious but fleetingly familiar.
