It may be cold outside, baby, but that didn't stop Maya del Sol from heating up our Monday night! Chicagoland Elites came together in Oak Park for an intimate evening overflowing with tasty Latin American eats, handmade margaritas, wonderfully accommodating service and mingling to the max.
"Oh em gees" were heard 'round the room as Elites sampled a few of Maya del Sol's most popular dishes including a trio of sopes (corn masa cakes filled with Chicken Tinga, sweet plantains and guacamole), Ceviche Tradicional (fresh fish cured in lime juice with tomatoes, red onions and Serrano peppers), Humitas Gratinadas (sweet corn tamales topped with Poblano cream sauce and Queso Fresco) and Argentinean Empanadas (beef picadillo wrapped in a puff pastry then baked and topped with a Chimichurri sauce). Happy stomachs... happy mouths... happy Elites!
Did we mention the margaritas? Oh yes, we did. Not only did guests get the opportunity to try Maya Del Sol's signature house margaritas made with ultra premium Milagro Tequila, but Milagro also invited Elites to step up to the tasting table for an interactive stand-alone sampling. To conclude an epic evening, three lucky winners took home a gift basket filled with Milagro Tequila, Milagro organic agave nectar and everything needed to mix a superb margarita at home. Additionally, Maya del Sol gifted two $50 gift certificates for a return visit to the restaurant recently featured on Check Please! Lucky us.
