A bit about Yo Soy Underground supper :
We host unique dining experiences at museums, art galleries, cafés, private homes, and other non-traditional settings with the goal of redefining the way we dine and connect with food. Yo Soy's "Mexican Inspired" menu is theme-based and carefully assembled drawing from our travels, holidays, and other unique ideas not normally explored by restaurants.
The term "Underground Supper" refers to the fact that the culinary experiences created by Yo Soy are constantly on the move, and have a high elusive factor. The "Pop-Up Suppers" are more defined by the meal being held at numerous locations around the city of Chicago. Yo Soy "Pop Up's" are in traditional, or non-traditional restaurant locations and create experiences that are sometimes "one-time" only events or an ongoing once a month visiting chef experience. The setting of the meals consists of communal tables of food lovers, artists, adventurous diners, etc,. Diners are notified via social media or word of mouth about the supper, and are typically given disclosure of the location eight hours before the event is to take place. Seats to the events are available only through our website and limited in availability.
Yo Soy Underground Supper is a labor of love that has allowed foodies, friends and strangers to gather over the past five years, allowing us the opportunity to experiment with different recipes and menu items that we hope to one day showcase in our very own restaurant. We cannot wait to meet and feed you!
We loathe the time of the year when the weather is no longer bright, hot and sunny, but we love to celebrate Dia de los Muertos and that is exactly what the fall brings us, so we will take it! Chicago is officially in Fall season and that means we are preparing recipes and menus that will be filled to the brim with apples, cinammon, pumpkins, rich gravies, etc. It also means we get to belaud one of Mexico's biggest reason to get dressed up and eat and drink like there is no tommorow, DIA DE LOS MUERTOS! for those unfamiliar, it is a holiday that is celebrated in many different ways, but mainly it is set aside for you to remember loved ones who have passed and honor their life by making ofrendas either at their gravesite or in your home. ofrendas are make shift altars that are all very unique since they are made to host the foods, drink, and favorite items of a deceased love one. Typically, friends and family would gather and share great memories of the loved one who has passed on and celebrate life by over-indulging (in our case) in the favored foods and beverages of the deceased. DISCLOSURE: The definition we have stated here is a very broad and shortened version, but you get the gist.
We are going to celebrate this fantastic holiday by creating a meal with the core idea of "honoring loved ones that have passed", but the dearly departed we will be honoring via food are not any of our family members, but celebrities that are no longer with us. We are just like anybody else, just because we love food and are particluar about comida, and snobs about spices, doesn't mean we don't have our guilty pleasure of love for celebrities! #dontjudge
We will pay homeage and turn our communal dining table into a edible ofrenda where we will prepare a five course meal that is to celebrate the lives of some of our favorite celebrities that have made a journey to the pearly gates. Each course we will present will honor a different celebrity. We cannot wait! We are so excited about it that we cannot wait to share some of the menu items/celebrity tributes, so here is a sneak peek into some ideas that will be incorporated into the meal:
SELENA (duh! you knew we have to have her) : Amole prohibido (forbidden rice, mole)
JOAN RIVERS ( double duh!) : Rio Grande (matzo ball, mexican chile, pozole)
No more give aways. You have to attend to taste and see all the rest. Seats go quick, so book yours STAT!

It was nice to get a chance to squeeze in a pop up supper this month between our wedding vows and our upcoming honeymoon! We are thrilled with the turn out and the new location that we found in wicker park! And...we would be doing a huge disservice to those who could not attend the supper to not fill you in on the musical talent from that night as well. Wild Skies was out of this world! They are not only hugely talented, but also some of the nicest guys you will meet. Check out their webpage for free downloads here! We will definitely be visitng that space in wicker park again and having Wild Skies perform at another supper soon. We have no public supper dates available for August, but stay tuned for a few dates in September! Here is a small peek into our last supper "Sons of a Beach"!
