We are a group of diners dedicated to finding great neighborhood restaurants throughout Chicago with wonderful food and ambiance to enjoy great conversation with Gozamos readers and friends.
Las Tablas “offers popular dishes such as the Bandeja Paisa, Matrimonio and their grilled skirt steak, perhaps the best in Chicago; also seafood such as grilled shrimp, calamari and octopus. It also serves an excellent ‘pollo al ajillo’ and empanadas that are possibly the best in all of the Midwest. Las Tablas yuca is crunchy and the steaks filled with a great flavor. ‘What differentiates our restaurant from other Colombian and South American restaurants is our seasoning. Only two people in the world can make it: My father and myself,’ says Farid Leonardo Suárez, who would like to go back to school to continue his graduate studies. In fact, it is the family’s seasoning secret recipe what has made Las Tablas a popular place of friends and family gatherings in Chicago.” (from Las Tablas Colombian Steak House)
We are lucky to catch Las Tablas during Restaurant Week, when they are running a three-course prix fixe menu. They are also BYOB for wine (only), so bring your favorite wine to go with juicy steaks and delicious apps.
We look forward to seeing you!
