Spanish Restaurants Chicago
After having lived in northern New Jersey for 18 months, we became very fond of the Spanish/Portuguese restaurants in Newark and throughout the region. While we have countless tapas-style Spanish places here in Chicago, we have yet to find anything close to the awesome, down and dirty, gut-busting joints that are all over "Joisy". East coasters know what I'm talking about....places that serves unbelieveably humongous steaks and chops, piles and piles of garlic shrimp and a truck load of Spanish sausage. The true antithesis of delicate tapas. It's not something you should eat that often for obvious reasons but, jeez, there's nothing quite so satisfying.
Apparently, there is one such place in Columbus, OH run by a Jersey expat couple, but can't locate anything similar here in the Chicago area. Can anyone help?
