Meet Chef Crispin Plata our Executive Chef at
Emilio's Tapas  "Sol y Nieve".

As a young man he immigrated to the United States 

and he was living in Chicago when an opening came up in

a new Spanish restaurant. He rushed to apply for the job.  

The chef that hired him that day was Chef Emilio and they  

have been working successfully together for over 25 years.  

Crispin says that Chef Emilio's belief in him is what really

helped him to be successful as a professional chef.


Chef Emilio's talents constantly amazed him and Crispin

continues to look up to him.With Chef Emilio mentoring him,  

Crispin was able to learn from the best, and with the  

Tapas King of Chicago's encouragement Crispin was able  

to grow and become the award winning chef he is today.

Chef Crispin's passion for great tapas has made our  

downtown location the place to be and be seen.
