In honor of the very first World Tapas Day on Thursday, June 16, high energy, sleek restaurant and lounge, El Tapeo, 2100 Spring Road in Oak Brook, will celebrate appropriately with half-off tapas, signature sangria and drink specials. Named after the local Spanish term “Vamos de tapeo” (Let’s go for Tapas), El Tapeo offers handcrafted, authentic Spanish cuisine from the award-winning Executive Chef Michael McDonald. With his innovative and comprehensive culinary style, Chef McDonald presents a broad selection of small plates and main courses to share among family and friends, offering guests the perfect place to gather for this festive occasion.
Fusing seasonal updates with traditional dishes, Chef McDonald has crafted a bold, savory menu, including Tapas favorites: La Carne y El Pan made with 1oz serrano ham sliced tableside and served with tomato bread and picked piparras; Croquetas de Setas prepared from cremini mushroom fritters and cilantro yogurt; Albondigas made of lamb and bacon meatballs, sherry tomato sauce, toasted almonds, and parsley; and Pimientos fixed with blistered shishito peppers, lemon zest, fresno chili, and sea salt. Guests can pair their bites with half price signature sangrias, or El Tapeo’s Dine on Nine special, where diners can enjoy half-off wines by the glass between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. All guests enjoy complimentary valet.
