Time Out says

Located above the Avec River North location, Bar Avec channels the Iberian Peninsula with a breezy, open-air patio on the 8th floor and a menu inspired by the seaside cafes of Spain and Portugal. There's no sea (or lake) in sight here, but the 1,200-square-foot space is decked out with summer-ready coastal decor that does a serviceable job of mimicking the real deal, from lush greenery and a rosemary plant trellis at the entranceway to blue-and-white tiling and low-slung Adico chairs.

As far as food goes, One Off culinary director Perry Hendrix, executive chef Paul Kahan and Avec River North chef de Cuisine Dylan Patel have assembled a seafood-forward menu, with options ranging from shareable small plates to larger dishes meant for for dinnertime. Pair your meal with warm weather cocktails from Avec River North bar manager Kate Smith, and come back on the Sundays for brunch.
