We recently ate out with Emily Szopa of the Chicago Dining Examiner to try the French-influenced Mexican cuisine at Mexique. We enjoyed excellent service, wonderful appetizers, outstanding entrees, and desserts to die for. The only question I had at the end of the evening was why there wasn’t a line to get into the place. Tune in for the details.
