That Downtown, James Beard-nominated, modern Mexican restaurant joins the forces of their own Executive Chef Rick Lopez with chefs Aaron Bludorn
and Drake Leonards
to celebrate this day through interactive experiences honoring the cuisine, culture, and customs of Mexico. They’ll start things off with ¡El Grito!, a party at Malverde upstairs (Mon., Sept. 16, 6pm), featuring mezcal tastings and botanas, with the chefs serving up ceviches from black sea bass and pompano, and DJ Steven Lee Moya
spinning the beats. Then (Tue., Sept. 17, 5pm) comes the first of the Sobremesa series of full-on collaborative dinners, and – yes, this is the way “party” properly becomes a verb, citizens. See website for details
$25 (¡El Grito!).
