Chef Akhtar Nawab (La Esquina, Elettaria) has opened Alta Calidad (meaning “high quality” in Spanish). The Prospect Heights restaurant offers tacos served on housemade tortillas; snacks such as Mexican Coca-Cola lamb ribs and pumpkin blossom quesadillas; and larger plates, like smoked hen-of-the-woods mushrooms with cashew horchata.

“The complex flavor combinations and ‘less-is-more’ style of cooking in Mexican cuisine has always really resonated with me. Between Choza Taqueria and my other Mexican experience, I’ve worked with it in so many formats over the years that I started to develop my own approach to the cuisine, which I’m excited to showcase at Alta Calidad,” Nawab said in a press release.
