Boka restaurant and soon-to-open Elske worked together to create a special nine-course menu, paired with Spanish wines, for 16 guests.

The Chefs

Lee Wolen – Boka, (The Lobby at The Peninsula Chicago, Eleven Madison Park)
Meg Galus  – Boka, (Swift & Sons, NoMi at The Park Hyatt, Cafe des Architectes at Sofitel, Tru)

I recently discovered on Instagram Stories, that Anna is also a talented illustrator. Her website has food, recipes and art.

Now, on to the dinner!
