Cinco de Mayo is certainly cause for a dining and drinking celebration each year. Sabor Saveur, the dramatic Wicker Park nouveau Mexican restaurant, offers a departure from the run-of-the-mill Cinco de Mayo event by teaming up with five popular area restaurants on a fun and affordable dining promotion in honor of the occasion.
Sabor Saveur, along with Chicago foodie favorites Mexique, Chilam Balam, May St. Cafe and La Casa de Isaac in Highland Park, will each present a three-course prix-fixe menu during Cinco de Mayo week (Monday, May 3 through Sunday, May 9) for $32 per person (excluding tax and gratuity). Sabor Saveur’s Cinco de Mayo menu, which offers guests a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert from chef Yanitzin Sanchez’s inventive repertoire, is outlined below. And, remember, Savor Saveur is a BYOB restaurant, so don’t forget to bring your Cinco de Mayo drink of choice.
