Sitting among some of Chicago’s finest restaurants in the West Loop you’ll find Salero, a destination for modern Spanish cuisine. Under the direction of Chef Ashlee Aubin, Salero has become a repeat landing-place for locals, and a must try for visitors.
Modest decor in an intimate environment accompanied by candle-lit tables and the sounds of Bon Iver, Lana Del Rey, and the occasional cocktail shaking, create a pleasant, inviting dining experience The focused yet elaborate menu features pairings of fresh, seasonal vegetables with locally produced meats and fish. Each plate, filled with a variety of colors and flavors — pleasing for both the eyes and the taste buds.
The vision of the restaurant is modern spanish cuisine — no tapas, sorry folks. With that said, the knowledgeable, hospitable staff are prepared to answer any and all questions about the modern menu.
Gather on the patio for after-work appetizers or meet at Salero’s beautiful, chic bar and let the experienced, talented bartenders craft your cocktail of choice. The exotic, well-versed cocktail and wine list at Salero are proof of Chicago’s growing wine and craft cocktail culture — and all at a reasonable price.
While some of us may prefer to stick to what we know, Salero offers adventurous beverage options, as well — specifically, their Spring Awakening cocktail is a must-try. Salero’s wine director is often present to answer any questions or suggest a pairing or two.
Whether you are looking for a date night restaurant, the perfect spot for a girls night out, drinks with a friend or dessert for one, Salero offers quality, satisfying options for any and all occasions.
