Reyna specializes in pinxtos, or small bites from Northern Spain. This tiny version of its larger, more extravagant two-storey sister Bar Reyna in Yorkville offers dishes from across the Mediterranean.
Unlike other stalls at Assembly Chef's Hall, Reyna's real estate is designed with more of an open concept.
Reyna owner Nicki Laborie sets the food out on a giant maple wood table rather than behind a bar, projecting the sense of being in a Mediterranean family kitchen.
Reyna is most famous for its aptly named Reyna salad ($15), which is a vegan melange of ingredients like beet, fennel and serrano tahini dressing, brought over from its Yorkville location due to its popularity.
Affordable bites include lamb baclavas ($5 per piece), pan con tomate ($3), which is essentially small bread pieces and tomato sauce, and Lebanese tacos ($6.99 each), stuffed with pulled chicken or falafel.
One of the best options here that is pretty affordable is the Lebanese taco combo ($12.99) which comes with a taco of your choice – the chicken is very juicy – and a small side of Reyna salad.
Aside from finger foods and snacks, this stall also has some pricier mezze platters ($23) and charcuterie boards ($25) in case you want to try a little bit of everything all at once.
