Emilio’s Tapas Newsletter 7/12/2017


We’re your passport to the authentic flavors of Spain! Emilio’s Tapas is the home of Chicago’s “Tapas King,” Emilio Gervilla. Our two family-run restaurants are committed to fresh food, good service, and giving back to local communities.


Thursday, July 13 at Hillside

We’ve been privileged to serve our community for 29 amazing years! It’s been quite a ride. To celebrate this exciting milestone, we are offering a special night full of fun and freebies. Come for a flamenco show, and participate in food giveaways! We’ll have gifts for you, our loyal customers, as well. Please join us for this celebration from the heart; we wouldn’t be here without you. Food tastings take place all day, but flamenco action takes place starting around 5:30 p.m.

Thursdays at Sol y Nieve

Come downtown Thursday nights for mood music with dinner. It’s complimentary – one of the many ways we upgrade your dining experience here at Emilio’s Tapas.



Did you know that when you come into either of our locations on any Sunday, you can get a FREE bottle of red or white Spanish wine just for ordering paella for at least two people? It’s true! We’ll choose the wine for you, and we’ll make it a good one! Please note: This offer is limited to one bottle per table, and is not to be combined with other promotions.


You choose the time and place

It’s time to think about your next party! Business meeting? Rehearsal dinner? Catered event? Anniversary celebration? Give it some international flair with Spanish tapas, which are perfect for parties because they go so well with festive drinks, and because they’re bite-size so people can try many different tapas at a time. For more information, or to book an event, contact haley@emiliostapas.com.

Eating outside is a special pleasure in Chicagoland, because it allows us to enjoy the amazing summers here. Both our locations in downtown Chicago and Hillside offer great patios for eating, drinking, and enjoying our friends. If you want to make the most of the nice weather while we have it, ask our hosts if you can be seated outdoors!


Tuesdays in July and August

Come to Hillside Commons for weekly events this summer that will include music, craft beer, food, a marketplace, and family fun! We’re excited to be providing some of the eats, and we hope to see you there! For information, visit www.summernightsinhillside.com.
