When you go out to eat, would you rather try several different things rather than ordering one large entree? If so, you need to check out Proxi, an enticing new tapas and cocktails restaurant near Catalyst Apartments.
Tapas are small, appetizer-style dishes that are meant to be shared. You order a few for the table, and then you and your dining partners nibble on the various options while sipping your drinks. Eating tapas is a social experience as well as a culinary one. Though the dining style originated in Spain, it’s becoming more and more common in the United States, thanks to restaurants like Proxi.
The atmosphere at Proxi is modern, yet inviting. There’s a large front window for plenty of natural light, and the spacious, exposed ceiling creates ambiance. Sit at the bar, or claim one of the comfortable booths where you can enjoy a more intimate dining experience with your friends or date.
The menu at Proxi offers something for everyone. Try the Wagyu Beef Sirloin or the Coal-Roasted Mussels for something enticing and special. Another favorite is the Tempura Elotes, which are coated in a very light batter. Don’t forget to pair your dishes with a cocktail like the Don Chouette, made with Aperol, bubbles, blood orange, and champagne ice cubes.
Proxi takes reservations, but they usually have a few tables set aside for walk-ins, too. They’re open Monday – Saturday for dinner. Visit them at 565 W. Randolph Street in Chicago.
