Logan Square may be buzzing with Mexican restaurants, but Quiote rises above them like a brightly hued piñata. Warm and inviting, with food that satisfies from sun up to sun down, this place embodies the very essence of a neighborhood spot. While the menu's assortment of small and large plates is meant for sharing, the kitchen aims to please and will create a typical three-course meal upon request. Expect authentic Mexican cooking with a creative twist, as evidenced by dishes such as the chorizo verde, a green-tinted pork sausage resting on smashed and griddled potatoes with sweet rings of onion and a golden raisin vinaigrette, or seasonally inspired plates like the flavorful crab tostada. As for what to drink? Three words: subterranean mezcal bar.
