Chicago Restaurant Week:Carnivale

On Wednesday night, we went to Carnivale for restaurant week! It was a completely colorful and bright experience. It’s also only a 15-20 minute walk from our house, in the Fulton Market district. The food is Latin fusion with tapas and some Asian influences.Check out the ceiling in the main dining room! We know people getting married here, this summer. I’m very curious to see what they do for a theme!
Mr. F got the black bean soup as the first courseand I got an arugula salad with goat cheese and satsumas. For the second course, I got the buttery vegetable paellaand Mr. F got the tasty pork shoulder with plantains, pickled cabbage, beans and rice.For dessert, we both got the caramel pecan cake with cinnamon ice cream and we were in heaven.
