Chao Pescao

$$$$
Written by

Chao Pescao is a casual new Cuban-Colombian restaurant, and a literal bright spot in Civic Center - you’ll be drawn in by the punchy teal and yellow signage and greeted inside by even more pops of color. Lively music and laughter echo through the huge space with high walls, all of which sets the stage for when your server returns to say, “Your cocktails are coming; it’s almost time to get the party started” - and you fully believe them. Here the cocktails and food tie all the good energy together, like the perfect tostones and fried Colombian-style empanadas that are brought out on large wooden boards to the sound of oohs and ahhs from everyone at your table. Make sure to follow those up with some large plates of lechon cubano and a Tajín-spiced fried chicken finished with heaps of traditional white rice, black beans, and maduros. Many things on the menu are made for sharing, from the salads and soups to the house specials, and you should. Chao Pescao knows how to ensure you and your friends eat well and have a great time, and that’s exactly why we love it here.
