Bar Takito, the Latin-inspired shared-plate expansion of Takito Kitchen in the fomer Kabocha space, is just two days from opening its doors in the West Loop. From the same team, including chef/partner David Dworshak and general manager/partner Adam Weber, Bar Takito expands on that concept's menu as well as its design.
Utilizing the large of amount of light that enters the space via its tall, wide windows, Bar Takito is bright, colorful and gives off a spirited, fun vibe. Cartoon-style graffiti art line the walls, while stark white table tops with either white bucket chairs or deep red, antique-ish swivel stools run throughout the floor. Unlike Takito Kitchen, Bar Takito employs a sizable bar, featuring a multi-colored wood design, with bar chairs in the same deep red as the tables' stools.
The restaurant's design, from D+K Architects and Interior along with designer Alex Alcott, has the look and feel of a quaint, seaside Latin café but with an upscale sensibility. Bar Takito can seat up to 160 guests and they plan on expanding to a nearly 80 seat patio along Morgan Street.
As previously reported, the restaurant opens this Wednesday at 11:00 AM for lunch and dinner service. Weekend brunch service is in the works.
