Try it Tuesday-Chicago #36

This week's Try it Tuesday was Carnivale, an anything-but-quaint spot in the West Loop. South American/Central American fusion -- this place wasn't bad. The food was pretty good, but the atmosphere makes this a place I probably wouldn't go back to.

Ropa vieja: sweet plantains, braised beef, spicy mayo, queso fresco
Flores y camarones: edible flowers, shrimp, corn tortilla, chihuahua cheese, tomatillo habanero sauce
Sopes de pollo: braised amish chicken, foie gras, spring peas, caramelized onions, chipotle puree
