1492 Tapas on Superior and Wabash has been closed for about 2 years. It was replaced by a breakfast/brunch place called Sunny Side Up

Walked around pissed off cuz we couldn't find it. Yelp told us it was closed when we got back to our hotel. Take this off Trip Advisor so others don't walk around aimlessly.

This was our first time dining at a Tapas bar so we didn't know what to expect at first, but let me tell you we were thoroughly impressed once we were done. The food was authentic and delicious, and the drinks were just as good. The interior had a classic Spanish atmosphere to it; very cozy and romantic. The exterior... More

The food was average, like the tasteless glop that generally gets dished out at tourist traps. The atmosphere was OK. The location is great. How did a sub-standard restaurant like this get to occupy space in an awesome down town Chicago location?

We accidentally ended up here instead of Iberico and were not disappointed. We did not have a reservation, because Iberico doesn't take them (where we had intended to go). But they still were able to sit us fairly quickly (much less than the 30 min they told us it would take). The service was extremely attentive and the food arrived... More
