The creators of new-concept eateries Bien Trucha in Geneva and A Toda Madre in Glen Ellyn just opened another Mexico-inspired restaurant at 120 Water St. in downtown Naperville (331 702-2711). The 30-item menu of shareable plates includes specialties like fresh oysters and Maine lobster ceviche, plustacos, asado and pork belly. Tortillas are made fresh each day, paired with guacamole and specialty salsas. The menu is seasonal and, where possible, ingredients are sourced from local farms. Cocktails infused with citrus and herbs add an unconventional twist to a bar menu that includes craft beers and wines from South America. The centerpiece of the restaurant is the lively open kitchen where diners can see the chefs busily at work. Brisk yet attentive service adds to the upbeat ambiance. The interior design, combining raw industrial finishes with murals hand-painted by Mexican artist, Spaik, is in tune with the fusion of ancestral and modern cuisine on the plate.
Quiubo is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. , with an 11 p.m. close on Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant anticipates adding a Sunday brunch and dinner service in the near future.Edit Module
