For many years, Emilio’s Tapas has found a home in the city of Chicago. We love this town, and we’re thrilled to be part of its heart, downtown between Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive. It’s an especially great place to be in the spring, as we finally start to see more sun and nice weather. It’s a great time to be downtown strolling through the park, enjoying the lakefront, or checking out museums. Stop by and enjoy our hospitality while you’re here. Whether you’re working in an office and looking for a break, or perusing the stores along Michigan Ave., we’re here for you!
