CHICAGO STYLE INTO JULY
We just love this time of year – it’s a great time to be out and about. And for dining on our patio, enjoying small plates with your friends, and having sangrias!
For many years, Emilio’s Tapas has found a home in the city of Chicago. We love this town, and we’re thrilled to be part of its heart, downtown between Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive. This is a perfect month to be downtown strolling through the park, enjoying the lakefront, or checking out museums. Whether you’re working in an office and looking for a break, or perusing the stores along Michigan Ave., we’re here for you! Don’t forget, July 4 is a great day to be at Sol y Nieve. Have dinner here outside or inside, then wander over to Navy Pier for its fireworks shows – they have two of them over the course of the weekend. One is at 10:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 1. Then, there’s a 9:30 p.m. show on Tuesday, July 4. Come for either or both, and enjoy some tapas before you go!
Whatever your culinary desires, Chef Crispin Plata and our amazing staff have you covered. We can cater to almost every dietary need, and we offer healthy dishes as well. Come in today! We have sangria, Spanish wines, and a great spot to watch what’s going on in the city.
We’re the only authentic, family-owned Spanish tapas restaurant in the Streeterville neighborhood, celebrating 17 years in downtown Chicago. We offer flavorful, freshly-made foods with a Mediterranean influence, designed for sharing and for complementing our handmade cocktails. We’re available for lunch or dinner. Emilio’s Tapas Sol y Nieve is conveniently located just east of Michigan Avenue on Ohio St., steps away from Navy Pier.
