Mexique is becoming one of my favorite Chicago restaurants. Our server was "Nurun", very nice and knowledgable. I started with "pescamal" , a seafood mousse with delicious red sauce mildly spicy with bits of shredded crabmeat. My wife adores Mexique's take on "french" onion soup. Two of then had "Cordero" rack of lamb, again with a great sauce and delicious eggplant. My wife again hit a home run with Chile Relleno - a very difficult dish, in my experience. The wine at $38 was a bargain, a Cepasantiguas Rioja. Perfect.

Saturday brunch was a gut bomb but don't let that scare you. Food so good that all,four of us old fart couples brought home menus for our twenty something kids who will love this place. It will be nice to recommend a hip/great place to them for a change. The onion soup is closer to a pudding than a broth - don't miss it. Not a full bar but the cocktails have a big agave kick.

Any meal at Mexique is amazing! Their short ribs melt in your mouth, the skate is wonderful, the steak is great, and the risotto is outstanding. Whatever you order, you won't be dissappointed.

Had a wonerful dinner and experience at Mexique, food was amazing and the service was outstanding. Atmoshphere was nice and quite and the restaurant was clean. Don't judge the restaurant from the outside, when we drove past it in kinda looked like a dive, but when I got inside my first impressions changed drastically.

I went to Mexique twice this week. Once for a business lunch and, because it was so incredibly delicious, again for dinner with my husband last night. Lunch was quiet, very affordable, shrimp cooked to moist perfection. Dinner was lively and dynamic. The place was buzzing, every table full, we ate at the bar. I had the skate wing with grapes, potatoes, etc. Don't miss it. Every bite was a surprise. Again, perfect seafood cook-timing.
