The Spot: Cafe Tranquilo
Evie Carpenter The Damas Brilliante was a highlight of Cafe Tranquilo's happy hour.
401 West Clarendon Avenue
The Hours: Happy Hour is Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. in the bar only.
Perfect for: Sitting in the shell of a once-beloved restaurant while half-heartedly enjoying their attempt at recreating your favorite dishes and drinks.
Interior: Despite very few changes to the space, Cafe Tranquilo is no Gallo Blanco. While it may be unfair to compare the relatively new restaurant housed inside the Clarendon Hotel to the now-closed local favorite, it's unavoidable when Cafe Tranquilo is essentially serving the same menu as Gallo Blanco and the only real change made to the decor is some new seating.More »
