In Lincoln Park, a near suburb of Chicago, we made a return visit after several years to Cafe Ba Ba Reeba, a Spanish & otherwise Latin, indoor/outdoor establishment on North Halsted Street.
The cocktails were good -- everything from 5-6 types of sangria (our fave was the passion fruit) to excellent house margaritas.
We did not try the paella -- next time, for sure -- but stuck with the smaller tapas plates. The portions discourage gluttony, and there were plenty of healthier, light dishes.
Shown above is an heirloom tomato salad and a smoked salmon dish.
