Tapas Barcelona | Evanston | Tapas/Spanish | Restaurant
Evanston tapas restaurant with a popular outdoor patio.

Our Review

By 6 PM on a Sunday evening, every table on the patio of this Evanston restaurant was full, and good cheer prevailed as a table full of professors from Northwestern mingled with assorted locals and a good number of what seemed to be honest-to-God Spaniards. Amid all the fun, there was some decent if unspectacular fare. This isn't the place for the unexpected or unusual, but the traditional is sometimes executed very well. The Spanish omelet, for instance, was near perfect; bacon-wrapped dates sitting in a pool of bell pepper sauce had my companion practically drooling. Other options--like the thin grilled scallops--were not so good. Duck sausage was better, rich and satisfying, but the side of mushroom ragu was oddly bereft of mushrooms. Fortunately, there's a full list of specialty cocktails, not to mention a decent beer and wine menu.
