Valentine’s dinner option: La Ciudad- A Romantic Escape to Mexico City from Chicago’s Uptown Neighborhood

Posted by ladiesintheloop in Art, Create, Culture, La Cuisine. No Comments

4th February

La Ciudad, which means “The City” in English, is an Uptown gem located near the intersection of Sheridan and Wilson. This Mexican grill and café features modern flavors alongside traditional recipes common in Mexico City.

Don’t worry if you don’t speak Spanish, the staff is multi-lingual and has great explanations of the menu items. Pricing is very accessible and make sure to try the Horchata Agua Fresca!  It’s a chic café setting that’s very intimate with a select number of white-clothed tables. The deep red walls feature black and white photography from places in Mexico City.

On Valentine’s Day weekend starting February 13th and every second Saturday, between 7-9:00 p.m. there will be a full mariachi band playing live Mexican music.
