Chicago Eating: Quartino

Eating good, fresh food shouldn't break the bank, even in the heart of a city's downtown. But, all too often, it does. That's why I was pleased this weekend to discover an Italian restaurant in the River North area of Chicago.

There is better Italian food to found in Chicago, but, dollar for dollar, I believe Quartino may be the best value. Quartino has a tapas-style menu -- small dishes of charcuterie, cheese, cured fish, risotto, etc. They also offer a wide variety of good wines by the glass. They also make pizzas, which looked quite good.

It offers some outdoor seating, and it's close by the Michigan Avenue shopping district.
