Urban Pilón is a culinary movement to share knowledge with the masses about the great foods of Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and Latin America. Our efforts are to create healthy, unique and innovative dishes unlike the established menus in Chicago. Since forming, Urban Pilón has created a food blog, hosted dinner parties at a large scale, performed cooking demonstrations, hosted classes, and much more.
