Chilies and Chocolate

Jesse T. Perez

Arcade Midtown Kitchen, San Antonio, TX

Spicy. Savory. Rich. Complex. In Southwestern cooking, there’s no flavor combination more iconic than chilies and chocolate—and no better place to indulge than at Arcade Midtown Kitchen, which made the cut for Eater’s “40 Most Anticipated Restaurant Openings of 2013.” Join us when chef Jesse Perez brings his love of this historic duo to the Beard House.
