This Logan Square spot focuses on elevated Mexican street food, and the trendy space feels more like a bar with great food than a restaurant. Masa Azul makes a smart play: they find their best flavor combinations, like their smoked chicken and chipotle sauce, and then put them all over the place. So the menu seems huge, but it’s basically the same 10 dishes in different disguises. But you won’t mind, because what they do they do very well. It’s a great spot for a casual weeknight meal, or even just for a low-key date night.
