Join Chef/Partner Jose Sosa of Chicago's soon-to-open UMMO for an unforgettable culinary journey to Italy on Friday, June 9 at 6:30 p.m. Opening summer 2023 in Chicago's River North neighborhood, UMMO has partnered with its sister restaurant Tzuco to host an intimate, chef's tasting in the exclusive private dining room to benefit Italy's flood-ravaged region of Emilia-Romagna.
