Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! is Chicago’s original tapas restaurant, serving authentic Spanish cuisine in Lincoln Park since 1985. Founding Chef Gabino Sotelino’s menu is designed to share, featuring tapas, pintxos (bite-sized tapas) and the classic Valencian rice dish, paella. Guests will experience a variety of tastes and flavors with signature dishes including Spicy Potatoes (patatas bravas), Baked Goat Cheese in tomato sauce and roasted Bacon-Wrapped Dates. The beverage menu boasts an extensive Spanish wine list, along with six types of signature sangria ranging from classic red and white to seasonal flavors like white peach and passion fruit. The restaurant is known for its lively atmosphere and warm ambiance; the dining room is decorated with a range of artwork celebrating Spanish language, cuisine and culture. Guests are invited to dine on the all-season patio, which features a sliding glass roof that opens during warmer months.
To our valued guests,
Lettuce Entertain You cares greatly about the health and safety of its employees and guests. In the last few weeks, we have closely monitored developments in the current COVID-19 outbreak and have initiated enhanced protocols to reduce opportunities for the spread of this virus in all of our restaurants and offices. Our actions are focused on guidance from the CDC along with state and local resources, and we continue to rely on their leadership. We are now facing a situation in which our actions can make a difference, not only to the health and safety of our employees and guests but also to our communities.
Many of you have asked how you can support our teams, we have set up a site to collect funds that will benefit our hardworking staff Employee Relief Fund
Based on direction from governmental agencies and as part of our ongoing effort to slow the community transmission of COVID-19, LEYE will temporarily close additional locations. Effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020, all Lettuce locations will close to dine-in guests until we are permitted to re-open by the applicable government authority.
We will reevaluate our options going forward based upon guidance and direction from health and government officials. In the meantime, we strongly encourage everyone to protect themselves and others by continuing to follow CDC guidelines (including social distancing, frequent handwashing, covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue, and staying home if ill) to combat community transmission.
