Lírica just opened the first Latin American restaurant at Navy Pier, a waterfront eatery at 900 E. Grand Ave. that offers “world-class views of glimmering Lake Michigan” and a “culinary tour of Latin American.”
The new restaurant has a 150-seat patio and a menu that includes Salmon Asado, Costilla de Ternera and primeros like Pulpo a la Plancha.
“The playful, poetic menu influenced by Ibero-American cultures has been curated by esteemed industry veteran Chef Cesar Reyes (Offshore Chicago, Smith & Wollensky, Spruce, Park Grill, Chicago Firehouse) alongside acclaimed Chef Michael Shrader (Offshore Chicago, Gideon Sweet, Monnie Burke’s, Luxbar, Epic and The Nine Group),” the restaurant said in a news release. “The savory Latin cuisine pairs well with Lírica’s creative cocktails, or ‘bebidas.'”
Maverick Restaurants developed Lírica, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. It’s taking reservations for indoor and outdoor dining.
“Lírica is Spanish for lyric, or expression of feeling and emotion. We’ve developed a restaurant and bar concept that will harmonize flavor-fueled fare, an upbeat, high-spirited scene and unparalleled views to create a once-in-a-lifetime feeling for our guests,” said Brittney Munro, general manager at Lírica. “Lírica will serve as a celebration of culture and an ideal getaway for all, right here in the heart of Chicago.”
The restaurant will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
