Gaston Acurio has over 60 restaurants which highlight different styles and levels of Peruvian cuisine. Tanta Chicago showcases the blend of Latin American, Asian and Spanish flavors that make up this dynamic cuisine. The bright, fresh, bold cebiches, the savory empanadas and refreshing and balanced pisco sours will transport you to Lima, Peru without having to pack a suitcase. The friendly, warm service makes a trip to Tanta even more worthwhile.

Tanta is a vibrant, lively restaurant which has been known for high sound levels. I was told they have done some acoustic panelling work and based on my most recent visit, I noticed a significant improvement. So much better, that at times, I thought the entire restaurant could hear us talking. If you've been sensitive to the sound issues at Tanta in the past, give them another try. Their pisco sours and seafood delights are too good to miss.

In the warmer Chicago months, the rooftop oasis beckons.
