Nando’s PERi-PERi, the South African-Portuguese restaurant known worldwide for its spicy flame-grilled chicken, is hatching in NewCity. Our third Chicago location is located on NewCity’s ground floor, next to the main central plaza. Nando’s has built an intensely loyal following, from the West Loop to western Zimbabwe, by providing fresh food in a relaxed atmosphere with friendly service. Every Nando’s is painstakingly designed and completely unique, with earthy textures and bright colors that reflect its sunny African-Portuguese heritage. With thousands of pieces of original works of art that are a constant reminder of where the restaurant came from, Nando’s has become the largest collector of South African contemporary art in the world. The NewCity restaurant is no exception, with original South African paintings and textiles, reclaimed flooring rescued from a defunct North Carolina furniture factory and undulating wooden “fins” that wrap from floor to the ceiling. Obrigado! We hope you’ll come and enjoy! The first Nando’s restaurant opened its doors in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Since then, the Nando’s flame has spread to 23 countries on five continents. Nando’s is known worldwide for its succulent PERi-PERi chicken, marinated for 24 hours, flame-grilled to perfection, and basted to the customer’s preferred flavor and spice. It’s equally renowned for its spicy PERi-PERi, the Bird’s Eye chili pepper that indigenous Africans introduced to the Portuguese centuries ago.
