Get to know Chef Meza's brand new menu: a collection of dishes inspired by Mexican flavors we all know and love, and influenced by the changing seasons of the Midwest.

Think: Chorizo Gnocchi, Lobster Tacos, Burrata and Barbacoa Short Ribs.

The significance behind the concept's name comes from a flying ant, 'Chicatana,' that is native to Mexico.

The celebrated insect tells a story of springtime migration during the rainy season, symbolic of progress despite otherwise rough conditions. Our goal is to embody the resilient Chicatana spirit, flowing with the seasons and the landscape of Chicago's hospitality industry.

Chikatana took flight in Fulton Market District in June of '21.
