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.
