Sobremesa | Oak Park, Illinois


Join us for our Oak Park edition of our Sobremesa Summer 2018, a global dinner series, hosted by Myndi Devore & Fran Knechel. Myndi and Fran share a love of cooking local, seasonal meals, feeding friends and family, and exploring Chicago’s restaurants (as well as raising young children, reading, exercising, and being married to attorneys named Charlie). They value the community that flows from preparing and sharing meals with friends. For more of Myndi’s work, follow her at @myndidfood and @readsandfeeds for Fran’s.

About the meal

Designed by Sunday Suppers, our Summer menu is inspired by the season’s bounty. Markets bloom with vibrant greens, berries, tomatoes and stone fruits and warmth surrounds us. In the kitchen, we reach for flavorful ingredients that mimic the intensity of summer — but also for cooling elements to cleanse the palette and refresh. This meal is inspired by the vibrant colors of the season, heat, balance, beauty, taste and our favorite foods to share.
