The Spanish tortilla? It’s great, the oniony egg-and-potato wedge tender but not mushy. The pincho de pollo, juicy chunks of chicken on a skewer? Very nice, especially when slathered with cumin mayo. And the arroz con leche? It’s filling, but if you have room for this cinnamony pudding, it’s a delicious way to end. Yet the real reason to visit this popular Evanston haunt is not the food, but the patio, an idyllic spot to put away some sangria, and—because it butts up against the patio of a retirement home—maybe even get some sage advice from a wise elder.
