Dear Boqueria Guests,
Thank you. The outpouring of support you have shown us over the past weeks has been incredible. Your optimism and encouragement have kept us going through the anxiety and uncertainty. Like most restaurants, as part of closing our doors in DC, NY and Chicago we have been forced to lay off most of our team, nearly 500 employees.
Whether you’re dining out at Boqueria or enjoying your meal at home in your Thanksgiving pants – Boqueria Beverage Director Kieran Chavez’s guide to perfect pairings will ensure that your Thanksgiving dinner this year is one to remember!
Come Thanksgiving, we always like to add a few Iberian touches to our favorite American classics on the table.
