Tavernita: River North's New Spanish Eatery Offers Event Space
Tavernita, the restaurant at the top of our list of this year's most anticipated new venues for events, officially opened in River North on Monday. With a copper tin ceiling, filament bulb lighting, and tile flooring, the interior takes its cues from eateries in Spain. The venue is operated by the team behind Mercadito.
The Barcito, a lounge area with a glass-encased pintxo display, seats 92 or holds 140 for cocktails, and is available for private and semiprivate events. The 122-seat main dining room and a lounge area with room for 120 can also hold semiprivate functions; the entire site is available for buyouts. Chef Ryan Poli's menu offers oysters, crostini, and flatbreads, along with meats prepared on a Uruguayan wood-fired grill.
