La Ultima Palabra: Rafael Esparza


La Ultima Palabra: Rafael Esparza

Chef Rafael Esparza has worked in some of Chicago’s most storied kitchens, including those in his own acclaimed restaurants like Evette’s and Finom, and he heaps praise upon others in the city’s restaurant community for coming together to help all of Chicago in the last year, citing efforts such as the Todos Ponen Project, Grocery Run Club and Community Kitchen.

But, he says, those efforts are only necessary because government and elected officials aren’t doing their job.
