The menu at 1492 is somewhat limited if you are a vegan. If you are looking for Spanish-style tapas and want a large selection of animal product-free options, I would recommend Cafe Ba-Ba Reeba! instead. That said, the ambiance is what makes 1492 really stand out. Unlike many other tapas restaurants in Chicago, which tend to be popular with families, 1492 seem to attract the late-20s-to-early-30s crowd. With its small rooms and tasteful decor, it's the perfect spot for an intimate gathering. The waitstaff is very friendly and bring the food at an appropriate pace.
