It is no coincidence that my last name, Mesa, translates to “table.” I was born to be a host. 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. **Please let me know if you have any food allergy/restrictions. **I only cook with fresh/seasonal ingredients.

Emilio was a great host! We had a lovely evening. Emilio is the most interesting person..We felt at home right away like we were sitting with a long time friend.

The empanadas and the other guests were the highlight of the event at Emillio's! However, the atmosphere was a bit odd (Emillio would occasionally make off-color or offensive comments). We overall had a great evening, but that was more because of the quality of the other guests rather than Emillio's hosting, which sometimes put us off. Unfortunately, I would not recommend or book again.

Superb dining experience. Emillio is a fabulous host with an extensive set of skills and stories to share. Our little family of 3 really enjoyed the evening.

We had a great meal at Emillio's! His home was lovely and very comfortable for my group, and he made us feel very welcome. The food was amazing and he was able to accommodate various dietary restrictions. He surprised me with the best gluten free cupcakes I've eaten to date for my birthday! Highly recommend this experience for an intimate dinner.
