Chicago Now Has a ‘Bodega’ That Sells Fruity Pebbles Churros
Barrio’s Companion Spot Is Open In River North
When Top Chef alum Fabio Viviani and DineAmic Hospitality Group opened Bar Siena two years ago in the West Loop, it enjoyed success opening a companion spot — BomboBar — which serves coffee, gelato, and Italian doughnuts through a pick-up window. Over at Barrio in River North, they’re trying emulate the same success with Mexican food and another Top Chefalum, Katsuji Tanabe. That’s why on Wednesday morning they opened La Bodega del Barrio, a space selling specialty churros (flavors like Fruity Pebbles, Nutella, and red velvet), coffees, and tacos.
