Just steps off Michigan Avenue, in the heart of the Magnificent Mile, this multi-award winning and annual top 25 Chicago Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy exceptional authentic Spanish cuisine.

Vibrant, colorful, fun, casual, and sophisticated, Sol y Nieve is in a world all its own.

Offering one of the best patios in the city, as well as elegant dining rooms and beautiful bar, this is a great place to dine, entertain, or gather with friends and family.

Chef and Owner Emilio Gervilla, dubbed by the press as the “Tapas King” is still overseeing the kitchen and creating delectable authentic hot and cold Tapas (shared small plates) and peerless Paella.

And events are always happening, including Flamenco shows, live Spanish music, along with Wine Tastings, Special Dinners, as well as Cooking classes with Emilio himself.

Emilio’s passion and love of his Spanish homeland and cuisine are evident in every aspect of this authentic “Taste of Spain”, and like the Sangria, are sure to stir all of the senses.
