Sinhá Dinner

Location: 8th Street Entrance (Lobby)

Community Dinners
Chicago, Community Engagement


Having used her home as both a boarding house for visiting international students and an event venue for her hobby of catering, Sinhá founder Jorgina Pereira decided to do something more. She recognized the lack of restaurants in her neighborhood and embarked on the conversion of her brownstone to a mixed used zoning project, birthing a restaurant where community and camaraderie are the themes.  Pereira believes that hospitality is the foundation of economic development for every community – and you’ll see (and taste) why.

Menu: Pineapple Salsa and Chips, Risoles, Yucca/Cheese Biscuits, Burrata Salad, Chicken Bobo, Beef Bacon, Grilled Sausage & Shrimp, Basmati Rice, Black Beans, Red Cabbage and Mango Salad, Baked Potatoes, Chutneys/Hot Peppers, Red Velvet Cake with Flan
