Meet Emillio
I'm back to hosting dinner parties in SF, after being in NYC (to finish my first book). I t is no coincidence that my last name, Mesa, translates to “table.” I was born to be a host. I am hospitality professional with 15+ years in hotel openings, catering management, and special events. My specialties include planning, business/concept development, decor, cooking for dinner/cocktail parties, and creating specialty cocktails. I am also a writer. My articles, essays, and profiles appear in The New York Times, NY Press, SF Weekly, Interview, OUT, Four Two Nine, The Huffington Post-among others. Why are sit-down dinners so powerful? The underlying main ingredient is the community aspect. Every guest is a surprise. It tears down people’s perceptions of borders, allowing them to meet and “break bread” with different nationalities, races, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The best way to make lasting memories, in a new city, is through a dinner party. *C/O my Instagram for pics of my food, events and life: emilliom1 **Please let me know if you have any food allergy/restrictions. **I only cook with fresh/seasonal ingredients.

Emillio is a great host! The dinner was amazing, the food was just perfect. I am visiting San Francisco for learning English. I thought the communication barrier would be a problem, but I was wrong. People were very friendly, especially Emillio, and I had great time!
