A few weeks ago we asked listeners to share their favorite tapas places in Chicago, and our friend Jack offered to share his family’s favorite tapas spot, Arco de Cuchilleros. We enjoyed an evening of delightful company, yummy tapas, and excellent sangria, but did Arco de Cuchilleros hold its own? Listen in and find out!

  1. Visit also Magnolia Cafe in Chicago. They have heavenly potato/blue cheese cakes…Yummy!

  2. My late mother used a wheelchair and I can’t tell you how many times she’d call ahead to double-check whether a restaurant was accessible, be assured it was, and then be directed to the alley. In one case, busboys cheerfully carried her up a small flight of stairs off to one side of a grease Dumpster.
    I don’t care whther the ADA offers options; I say accessibility means the front door.

  3. Leigh,
    I think you make a great point. What’s almost as bad in my mind, is long routes through back hallways or alternate entrances that are sometimes on the other side of the building. I’m able bodied and it makes me tired to take the long way around!
    I know places try, but sometimes they should consider if their solution is really worth the effort.
