Yellow, Blue & Red – Colombia Comes To Chicago

“Yellow, blue and red are the 3 colors in the flag of the Republic of Colombia. In Spanish: Amarillo, Azul y Rojo [ ah-mah-ree-yoh, ah-zool e roh-ho ]. The colors have been described as representing elemental concepts such as sovereignty and justice (yellow), loyalty and vigilance (blue), and valor and generosity (red); or simply the principles of liberty, equality, and fraternity. The essence that makes Colombia and Colombians what and who they are and the way they live life. YB&R aims to represent that soul and essence in every dish, served by the chef with the same hospitality Colombian homes are known for.”

A Colombian friend of mine told me about Yellow, Blue & Red and I was immediately intrigued. According to their website they are essentially a pop-up restaurant and will be “on tour” around the US.  You must be invited/referred by a previous guest and they only have 1 table for 6 people. The best part, the meal is gratis, no check, nothing.

It sounds like it is pretty exclusive but they also do private dinners. I am hoping I can be apart of a dinner with my Colombian friends soon! I will keep you posted. If anyone knows of a previous guest, please let me know!

In the meantime, fest your eyes on this:
