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.

The highlight of our trip to San Francisco! Emillio is an amazing host and went above and beyond to make our night special. The conversation was nonstop, insightful and genuine. The food was delicious, plentiful and his signature empanadas and Coquito are amazing! Emillio’s home is bright, inviting & comfortable, and the cocktails were delightful! We stayed longer then I expected and we left with the warm feeling that we now have a friend in San Francisco.... and knowing that Emilio definitely now has friends in Syracuse, NY. These are the experiences in life that you can’t put a price on. Thank you Emillio!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal with Mario in his home! He was an amazing host! The dinner was delicious, the cocktails creative and the conversation was more than engaging. My husband and I and our 25 year old son were well entertained. There wasn't a moment of lull in our colorful and delightful conversation and the food/drink was plentiful throughout the evening. Thank you Mario for a wonderful evening and being such a fabulous host in your beautiful and eclectic home. We loved every minute!
