Salero – Basque-ish Comes to the West Loop

Salero Chicago Dining Room

The team behind Wood, one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago, recently opened the Spanish inspired Salero in the West Loop. This is not a purist take on Basque cuisine, there are no tapas on the menu (these can be found at that bar only) and this is a Chicago take on Spanish food but none of this will matter as the menu has an array of consistently excellent dishes. Add in the lively atmosphere and great service and Salero is poised to be a Randolph St. favorite. Reservations recommended.
