Friends with Benefits

A Dinner Series

A lively and entertaining dining experience by Chef Jorge Guzman at Petite León, welcoming and collaborating with some of our amazing friends who also happen to be chefs. We’re hoping to shed light on different cultures, celebrating and promoting the diversity in food and friendships it creates. Each dinner we will donate a portion of the proceeds to help benefit a charity of the chefs choice. We can’t wait to welcome you.


February 6th | $100 per ticket

Jonathan Zaragoza

Birrieria Zaragoza

Chef Jonathan Zaragoza was raised on Chicago’s Southside by a tight-knit family with strong cooking roots. At the age of 12, in the backyard of their home, Zaragoza began learning to make birria, roasted goat from Jalisco, in a wood-burning oven built by his grandfather and father. In 2007, Birrieria Zaragoza opened its doors giving Zaragoza a platform to create and continue learning from while diving headfirst into Chicago’s hospitality industry. From working at Sepia and Sixteen, cutting his teeth on the Michelin circuit, to becoming the chef of Masa Azul at 22. Zaragoza’s culinary abilities have afforded him acclaim and the world as his kitchen. His path has taken him throughout Mexico, deep into its rich culinary heritage, to bring its traditions with him to London, Dubai, Paris and all across the US.
