Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! originated in 1985 as Chicago's original tapas restaurant in Lincoln Park. Executive Chef Eric Jorgensen serves authentic Spanish cuisine with a modern twist, building on Founding Chef Gabino Sotelino’s original menu featuring tapas, pintxos (bite-sized appetizers from northern Spain) and the classic Valencian rice dish, paella – all designed to share. Along with traditional Spanish favorites like Spicy Potatoes, Bacon-Wrapped Dates and Baked Goat Cheese, Chef Jorgensen draws from Mediterranean, Portuguese and Moroccan influences as well. Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! also serves a weekend brunch of sweet and savory tapas, a variety of Eggs Benedict options, waffles with housemade nutella and more in addition to a Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary bar.
