Tamayo Turns Fifteen and Will Celebrate With a Quinceanera Tonight

Richard Sandoval's modern Mexican restaurant Tamayo has held down its corner of Larimer Square for fifteen years now. When the restaurant first opened in 2001, it was Sandoval's first foray outside of Manhattan; today the chef/restaurateur has 44 restaurants in his empire, including seven in Colorado — which he now calls home. And today marks Tamayo's fifteenth birthday.

Since Cinco de Mayo, the restaurant has been serving a throwback menu filled with past favorites, a menu that will only be available through today. The main event will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. tonight, when there will be a Quinceanera patio party on the rooftop. The event will feature new menu creations, old favorites, a tequila tasting station, live music, birthday cake and more. Tickets, $38, are required; purchase them here
