Not exactly the Carnivale you were thinking but it's almost as festive. During a trip to Chicago I dined at Carnivale, an authentic "nuevo" Latino cuisine in Downtown Chicago. So what exactly does that mean? It's probably owned by an American and mixed in fusion to the menu. I must say I am a fan because it reminds me of El Vez in Philadelphia. A very large venue with different rooms including a lounge/bar area and a large dining area surrounded by private dining areas. Sure it may not be authentic Mexican food, but it's a place to take a date or a large group...most likely business group. Although it seems like a "too bright" spot in a shady part of town, this would probably be my regular margarita spot. Enjoy :).
