Italy Coast to Coast Dinner Series

Come and celebrate the delicious food and wine from four amazing cities across Italy, Chef Justin Lall will design a four-course menu inspired from each of our chosen cities in Italy.

Beginning in the south we will start with the famous coastal city of Naples on March 20, the capital of Campania and third largest city in Italy. Naples is internationally famous for its cuisine and wine, known for the rich flavours and inventing the Neopolitan pizza.

Next we will move up to the historic city of Rome on May 22, the capital of Italy, Rome has the third highest density of residents in Europe. Rome’s food flavours are vast and influenced from many of its surrounding regions and countries.

For the summer we head off to the region of Tuscany to enjoy the city of Florence on July 24th, if the weather is nice we may dine al fresco on the patio (TBD). Florence cuisine is very comfort based and is heavily focused on meat and wine, Tuscany is one of the most famous regions of Italian wine with big flavour.

We will finish our fourth dinner on October 23 with a fall inspired menu with the northern city of Milan which is knows as the design capital of the world. Milan has developed its own local culinary traditions typical for North Italian cuisines uses more rice than pasta and many braised meats.

Each ticket includes a welcome glass of prosecco, a four-course plated dinner inspired by the region of each city, hospitality and tax. You can choose to include wine pairings for each course, picked from each of the regions to complement each dish.

Seating is limited as we will only be selling 40 tickets to each of these dinners, so make sure to purchase your tickets early. In the true style of Italy we will be dining at four communal tables for the evening to enjoy conversation with others.
