Churrasco, Rum Cured Salmon, and Potato Gnocchi are some of the offerings, which can be preceded by appetizers such as Coconut Shrimp, Ropa Vieja, and Calamari. The breadth of dinner offerings at Carnivale is nearly unparalleled in Chicago — but dinner doesn’t have to be the end of your night!

The desserts are just as diverse as the entrees and appetizers, including such offerings as chocolate lava mousse cake, tres leches, and organic cotton candy. We give our diners a unique experience thanks to Carnivale’s combination of unique culinary creations and our festive atmosphere.
