Chef David Dworshak of Carnivale is a determined locavore— Carnivale has its own rooftop garden— but Carnivale is also a restaurant with an international Latin flavor. So each month during this summer, they will focus on a different Latin-influenced country while using mostly local midwestern ingredients. It starts tonight through Sunday with a menu of Peruvian food; the Philippines are next, June 18-24; then Portugal, July 22-29; then Morocco, August 20-26. Reservations are required, at 312-850-5005; see the Peruvian menu below.
