    Oct 9, 2012 Excellent food, good people, great vibes. "The key to a perfect night out in Chicago is to start the night with a perfect dinner. Recently, I had what i consider to be a very successful night out in Chicago. Heading to West Kinzie street, I knew right where i was going. Strolling up to the restaurant you see a relaxed outdoor setting with quiet and intimate seating. The perfect location for a romantic dinner for two. However, this particular night I was with a group of five great friends. Translation: good company always means a good night out but five girls in a quiet setting is not going to work. Knowing outdoor seating would not work on this night, we headed inside. The outdoor vibe as different from the indoor vibe as peanut butter is from jelly but nonetheless going together perfectly, we knew we came to the right place. With music bumping (but not to loudly), dim lighting (but not to dark), and a vibrant group of people, the inside has a club like vibe that is made for dining before a night on the town. With bar seating, high seating, and low seating, you are given your fair number of choices on what kind of table and seating you want for your dinner. We chose low seating right next to the large windows overlooking Kinzie Street. Already feeling like my night was a hit, I had no idea it was about to get ten times better once the food arrived. With six different guacamole to chose from, we went with the traditional, the mango, and the elote. All three were guacamole heaven and so various that my taste buds were on overload. I went with the quesadilla and the pollo tacos for my main course and have never tasted Mexican food so fresh it melts in your mouth and gives you goosebumps. For an amazing Mexican meal, this restaurant is a must. i am, of course, talking about Mercaditos where you can also wash down the delicious food with an equally delicious margarita. With a perfect dinner out of the way, it was now time to find a place where we could talk, dance, and meet new people. We didn't have to look far. Located right below Mercaditos is Double A. With a chic lounge vibe, the setting is intimate and thrilling. Your drinks are mixed right next to you in a way that makes you believe you have every say in how it is concocted and WOW are they delicious. Overall, it is a dining and party experience that is delicious and highly entertaining. I would highly recommend a night out (or fifty) at this location! " hide
