Fullerton and Clark
If you enjoy tapas, Emilio's has some of the finest. Don't miss the garlic potato salad, dates and bacon, or steak with carmelized onions and peppers. The tomato sauce with feta cheese spread on garlic toast is always a fav, too. There are lots of seafood options - I've heard the shrimp and scallops dishes are very tasty. Emilio's has a few different types of pallaea (how the heck do you spell that?!) - but I don't like to fill up on rice dishes - I would rather try lots of tasters. Order a patron margarita on the rocks with salt and your evening is complete. Although my favorite tapas place is Cafe Babareeba - Emilio's is a great tapas place if you are looking for something a little more classy and dressed up. Ask for Roxy as your waitress - she's a doll.
