Next, you’ll hear from Theo Loizou himself. Fresh from the latest season of Masterchef, he’s curated a five-course feast featuring unique Mexican dishes with his personal flair.

A Menu to Dream About

You’re in for a treat with Theo’s crafted menu. Expect dishes like grilled octopus tacos with spicy onion salsa, and lamb with a mezcal glaze. Don’t miss the sharing platter of tacos al pastor or the twice-cooked duck in mole. And for dessert? A bread-and-butter pudding taco topped with mezcal caramel. Veggie options? They’ve got that covered too.

Not Just About Food

Of course, the night wouldn’t be complete without some killer drinks. Get set to sip on five different Mezcalitas, each designed to pair perfectly with your meal. From Coco Perez to Oaxaca Old Fashioned, these aren’t your everyday cocktails.
