Theres something about a family meal that makes the food even more delicious. Perhaps its the love thats stirred into the simmering pot. You can taste it in the Peruvian cuisine served up at Mama Lilas Bistro . The Valderrama sisters opened the charming eatery to celebrate their large and loving family. Stop by for complimentary hors doeuvres and sangria this evening at their open house; the event dovetails with the popular Coral Gables gallery night. Guests can feast their eyes on artwork by Mphotodesigns and Basque artist Asunta Year. She comes from a long line of women painters, back to her great-grandmother. Its a beautiful tradition that ties in very well with our restaurant, because my sisters and I opened this restaurant in honor of our grandmother, Lila, explains co-owner Rosa Valderrama. Meet the family tonight from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. Call 305-461-2424, or visit www.mamalilasbistro.com.
