We are an authentic Spanish restaurant located in Chicago's vibrant Wicker Park neighborhood. At Black Bull, ingredients have always been the stars behind Spain’s culinary triumphs, and Chef Marcos Campos explores the exquisite products and flavors found throughout Spain to create a variety of dishes that represent the essential pleasures of his country’s traditions.
Behind the bar, our team has created the most comprehensively "Spanish" beverage program in the City, featuring a Sherry List with over 30 selections, Spanish-style Gin & Tonics, House Cocktails infused with Spanish flavors, and a wide selection of Spanish beers and wines.
Rather than limiting itself to one area of Spain, Black Bull freely wanders the country offering the best it has to offer — from the pristine canned seafood (conservas) of Northern Spain’s Galicia and the beloved paella and arroz of Valencia to the legendary roasted suckling pig (cochinillo asado) of Segovia. Tapas, traditional and not, are represented as well. And jamon, considered one of Spain’s national treasures, is also featured. Although at Black Bull it’s from Cinco Jotas, Spain’s top purveyor of cured ham for more than 130 years. We think it pairs beautifully with a bottle of vintage cava, Spain’s answer to champagne, and we think you will, too. Buen provecho!
Behind the bar, Black Bull’s team has created the most comprehensively Spanish-centric beverage program in Chicago. From an extensive sherry list representing all the various expressions to Spanish-style gin and tonics (gin tonicas, to be exact) and creative house cocktails infused with Spanish flavors, the beverage selection at Black Bull digs deep. An exclusive Spanish wine list represents the personal relationships established with winery owners over the years. There are four Spanish beers available on draft, as well as a Galician favorite, sidra. And should your thirst lean more towards sangria, Black Bull has that, too, available by the glass and bottle in red and white varieties.
