Our story

15 years ago, sisters Leticia and Erika Espinosa immigrated to Chicago from Mexico City. As they put down roots in the Windy City, the Espinosa sisters proudly preserved the culture, traditions and recipes they grew up with. Five years ago, they co-founded Colores Mexicanos: Chicago's Mexican Gift Shop, to bring the finest in Mexican art and culture to downtown Chicago. Now, they plan to do the same at CocoBar, with delicious, fresh Latin American cuisine made fresh for you on the Chicago Riverwalk. We hope you'll join us. ¡Salud!
