Dinner (closed Mon)Average tapa: $7
This Naperville small plates spot is helmed by chef John Borras, who did some training at Spain’s legendary El Bulli. His menu has a few unconventional entries—items like mango “caviar” and skinless ravioli filled with chocolate or squid ink—but some of them have more “hmm” than “mmm” going for them. Still, with predictable tapas for the old-schoolers and creative stuff for daring ones, this is a welcome addition to the suburban dining scene.
