Twist Tapas Cafe (Restaurant, Lakeview/Wrigleyville)
I am in love. Head over heels, obsessively, passionately, helplessly, hopelessly in love…with a restaurant called Twist. This quaint tapas café in Wrigleyville is my new food infatuation, and for good reason! The atmosphere and decor is inviting and cozy, but it tends to fade into the background once you get your food. I haven’t met a platter there I haven’t liked, and the sangria… don’t even get me started. YUM! My personal favorites are the mac ‘n cheese sprinkled with bacon and tomato bits, the bacon wrapped brown sugar dusted dates, and the jalapeño gnocchi. For dessert, regardless of how full you are (every time I visit, I leave ready to burst), you can’t pass up the flourless chocolate cake. The eclectic menu offers a variety of warm and cold tapas with various international influences. It’s a small space and the rustic atmosphere is great for date night or girl’s night. Whether you are coming from several blocks away or the South Loop, Twist is most definitely worth the trek!
