Emil Rivera

Sur Lie, Portland, ME

After years honing his skills under JBF Award winner José Andrés at Washington, D.C.’s lauded Jaleo, Emil Rivera moved up north to make his mark on Portland’s dynamic food scene with his buzzed-about solo venture, Sur Lie. Join us and sample Rivera’s sophisticated, boldly flavored small plates that critics raved as “brilliant” and “a kind of alchemy.”
