Tanta is dedicated to sharing the flavors and culture of Peru with Chicago, serving authentic Peruvian dishes and beverages in an approachable, fun and casual downtown setting. We provide service that is casual yet knowledgeable, genuine and attentive, utilizing locally sourced products and vendors that are sensitive to sustainable farming and fishing. The menu, created by Chef Gaston Acurio and Tanta Chicago Chef Jesus Delgado, takes guests on a voyage through Peru with its food. From the Pacific Ocean, through the Andes, to the desert, to the Amazon, Tanta celebrates the diverse landscape and various ethnicity that make up Peru’s culture. Emigrants from China, Japan, Spain, and Italy melded their respective dishes with the native Peruvian cuisine and adopted local agriculture to create a unique melting pot of Peruvian cooking that keeps boiling to this day.
