Oloroso Spices Up Cinco de Mayo with a Spanish-Mexican Culinary Extravaganza

PHILADELPHIA, PA - Forget your usual Cinco de Mayo routine! This year, Oloroso is turning it up a notch with an unforgettable fiesta that blends the festive spirit of Mexico with the culinary finesse of Spain. Chef Townsend Wentz's acclaimed Spanish tapas restaurant and sherry bar is ready to transport you on a flavor journey you will never forget.

Executive Chef Jason Peabody is pulling out all the stops with a special à la carte menu for the occasion. Dive into a world of bold flavors with dishes like the Cecina Tartare, where cured beef mingles with the earthiness of roasted mushrooms and a sprinkle of Manchego cheese. Experience the coastal zest of Mexico in the Hamachi Tostada, a vibrant combination of textures and tangy tomato escabeche. Savor the Gambas Azules, showcasing smoky blue prawns with zesty pimento picante. The Parrillada Mixta will arrive sizzling with grilled New York strip, lamb t-bone, chorizo, chicken adobo, and all the fixings for a sharing feast. And, of course, what's a celebration without dessert? The churros with smoked cinnamon and a decadent chocolate con chile sauce are the perfect way to end the night on a sweet note.

Your taste buds are in for a treat, but don't forget to explore the expertly crafted cocktail list! Bar lead Andrew Hicks has whipped up a selection of unique libations that celebrate the theme. The Andalusian Cruiser offers a taste of sophistication with a blend of mezcal, salers aperitif, and a touch of prickly pear sweetness. If you like a hint of spice, the Fuego My Eggo will set your senses alight with ancho chili-infused vermouth and a burst of citrus. For a timeless drink with a twist, the Oaxacan Old Fashioned uses Reposado Tequila for that extra depth of flavor.

Oloroso's dedication to giving back makes this Cinco de Mayo particularly special. A portion of the night's proceeds will directly benefit the Nationalities Service Center (NCS), a vital organization that empowers immigrants and refugees in the Philadelphia area. Enjoy your delicious meal and festive drinks, knowing you also positively impact your community.
