Location – 42 E. Superior (Superior between Wabash and Lake)
In one word – Sangria
Food – When Cafe Iberico is claiming a 2 hour wait, head over to 1492. You can get well executed tapas with no wait at all! We ordered the bacon covered dates, potato omelet, patatas bravas, grilled calamari and croquetas with chicken. I had no complaints whatsoever.
Drink – What I like about 1492 is the multiple flavors of sangria offered. We ended up just going for the basic sangria despite all the options.
Service – We were a decent sized group and they accommodated us with a last minute reservation on a Friday night. For that, I am appreciative.
Occasion – There were a lot of group dinners going on at 1492. Come here to indulge in tapas with a large group of friends and to pass around a couple pitchers of sangria.
Dress – It seems that people stop here before going out to a different nightspot. As a result, I saw a lot of folks in their weekend club wear. Obviously that attire is not mandatory.
Cost – Expect to pay $30 if you’re sharing tapas with a couple of friends.
