El Che Bar, Chicago's Argentine-influenced steakhouse, is Executive Chef/Partner John Manion’s homage to the meat and vegetable heavy traditions of Argentina's Asador. Located just beyond the West Loop’s famed “restaurant row”, El Che Bar opened in 2016 and has quickly built a reputation as Chicago's go-to destination for beef, wine and live-fire cooking. A 12 ft. custom-built grill ignites a range of South American-tinged meats, seasonal vegetables, seafood and novel barrio-inflected bites to perfection. Chef Manion’s passion for Latin flavors imbues the spirited dishes and dramatic setting of the swanky 100-seat restaurant. Guests can feel the intensity of the open flame when dining at the chef’s counter for a 10-course meal. Likewise, El Che Bar’s Asado channels classic Argentine backyard barbecues with platters of rustic flame-finished grilled beef and seasonal accompaniments, paired with featured wines that emphasize the unique and rare reds of the region. El Che Bar’s remarkably simple and elevated food is complemented by a vibrant and exciting cocktail program directed by acclaimed bar talent Jacyara de Oliveira (Food & Wine: Rising Star, Jean Banchet:Best Mixologist, StarChef: Rising Stars) who focuses on Latin spirits and the drinking culture of South America. El Che Bar has earned a coveted three-star rating from the Chicago Tribune and was named in the “Top 50 Chicago Restaurants” by Chicago Tribune’s dining critic, Phil Vettel in February 2017.
