Mercat de la Planxa

21 Apr

Yes, my blog is about Milwaukee restaurants, but I will occasionally write about really great places in Chicago since we are so close. Next time you’re in the Windy City, be sure to check out Mercat de la Planxa. The chef is from Barcelona so it focuses on Catalan inspired food and drink. It is mainly small plate dining so it is the perfect place if you like to try an assortment of new things. Things like: shrimp, chorizo and garbanzo bean puree flatbread, braised short ribs with horseradish, parmesan and bacon and Serrano ham wrapped tuna with potato croquettes and foie gras.   And of course with a little Cava to wash it down and it was just like being back in Barcelona!
