Nacional 27 take me away

April 19th, 2011 by Giselle

this time last year i was in south beach, miami for spring break. everyday was sunny and mid-seventies and i spent most of my trip in the sand, or at a pool or inside the fontainebleau.

this year, this is what i get for vacation:

and it hurts. bad. luckily, we have some local places, like Nacional 27 to take the sting out (or at least make us forget the midwest for a few hours).

i got to visit Nacional 27, a restaurant/club in downtown’s river north neighborhood, recently and my how it took me back to late nights in south beach. the cocktails that were refreshing, tropical, rum-filled and elegant. the ceviches and sea side plates were served straight up with touches of cilantro and lime and tons of flavor. the bright-tasting, fresh salsa with perfectly crispy chips were passed under the warm lights just off the dance floor where some salsa dancing was taking over every corner. apparently Nacional 27 even has a “miami nights” event. is the universe telling me something? like, i must return to both the florida and chicago locations as soon as possible? let’s hope so.
