Quiote - Restaurant, Mezcal Bar and Cafe, is an ode to the agave, the flavors of the various regions of Mexico and the stories of the artisans and producers behind it all.

Our dining room serves modern Mexican cuisine complemented by local ingredients and rotating seasonal menus.

The menu is inspired by the regions of Mexico and their unique flavors, ingredients and dishes.

The lower level, an underground Mezcal bar, is reminiscent of those alongside the cobblestone streets of Oaxaca, Mexico, showcasing the artisanal spirits of the agave both poured neat and in expertly crafted cocktails. Our curated Mezcal selection focuses on traditional producers who are transparent in their practices.

The entrance to the bar is located off Altgeld down a side stairwell lit by a glowing green agave neon.
