Cooking and feeding one another is an act of community. Hoy por tí. Mañana por mí: This Spanish idiom (which you’ll find in neon lights above our front and back bar) embodies a sense of unity and helping each other today because we don’t know what tomorrow holds.

We welcome you to La Josie.

Our award-winning, upscale-casual Mexican restaurant with three agave bars, including one on the rooftop, brings traditional flavors in a modern, yet comfortable atmosphere in Chicago’s West Loop. Since May 2017, Chef/Owner Pepe Barajas has offered creative and thoughtful dishes influenced by all regions of Mexico alongside some of his family’s recipes from their home state (and tequila’s birthplace), Jalisco, Mexico.

We named our restaurant in honor of Barajas’s late aunt Josefina Villegas, a kind-hearted and hard-working restaurateur who cared for him like a second mother. She had the ability to bring people together, especially over a great meal, and to encourage learning by doing.

Whether you come to La Josie to unwind after a long workday, celebrate a special occasion, or enjoy a creative cocktail and snacks, even at a late hour—we hope you leave feeling well-fed and cared for.
