Chef Reischl | 19th Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night

ATRIUM Hotel joins in the fun as Share Our Selves hosts their 19th Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night, featuring more than 20 local chefs!


Taking on creativity for a cause, each chef goes wild with their creations as they dive into making a taco to remember. From dried pineapple as a tortilla to smoked alligator, guests enjoyed a wide range of tastes and flavors as the clan of top chefs throughout Orange County came together to create another successful wild & crazy night.


Infusing the old East with the new West, ATRIUM’s Chef Chris Reischl created a culinary delight that had many coming back for more. The menu of the night….beef cheek and ox tail braised in bohemia beer, topped guajillo chili, pickled mango and pineapple pico de gallo sent hundreds of event guests heading in search of more from Chef Reischl’s table.


A few other favored tacos of the night consisted of…


Chef Paul Buchanan, Primal Alchemy Catering | created a turkey mole with sweet corn pudding and prickly pear crema.


Chef Greg Daniels, taco asylum | went all duck including duck tongue and “fried”; term used to describe duck testicles.


Chef Louie Jocson, The Red Table | made yuzu crab ceviche wrapped in thinly sliced Bordeaux radish “wrappers.”


Chef Marco Zapien, Melissa’s Produce | catered to the meatless with a vegetarian chile verde taco with soy, onions, pepper, cabbage and cotija cheese.


Chef Ryan Wilson, Five Crowns | created a grassfed-steak tartar with horseradish hollandaise and upland cress.


Chef Franco Barone, II Barone Ristorante | put together a small ‘burrito-esque’ cannelloni


Altogether, the SOS’s event was yet another successful and delicious event and we can’t wait for next year!
