About us

Vera wine bar and restaurant is tucked underneath the train tracks in the vibrant West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. Owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Elizabeth and Mark Mendez, industry veterans with over 40 years combined experience. Liz and Mark strive to create an intimate, cozy, welcoming atmosphere to enjoy Spanish influenced cuisine with a well thought out wine and spirits list. Liz and Mark met and fell in love while working at another restaurant, and knew that eventually they would open their own place to showcase all the things they were most passionate about. In October of 2011 Liz and Mark's dream came true and opened Vera, named after Mark's maternal grandmother.
