Lungarno - The River Banks of Florence
Sat, April 29, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
Walking through the streets of Florence this time of the year is absolutely magical. The mist at times thickens up to around the river banks, sign that temperatures are starting to rise and the ground is warming up. You could find yourself zig-zagging through tight ancient city blocks, step after step, alone, with friends or hand in hand with someone special... suddenly not worrying about the time passing, but rather taking it all in. Fabio Picchi, a most famous Florentine chefs affirms that "Florence is different every day, and every moment of the day..." and he could not be more true. The secret is: when you finally come back to your senses, after all the splendor has sunk in, and you realize that you are hungry, "what would you eat and where?".
This menu is inspired by the many meals I have enjoyed in the little Trattorias by our city's beloved river, alone, with friends and a times with someone special.

As always, given the nature of our events and the small size of our room, tickets are transferrable but not refundable. Please double check your calendar before pulling the trigger!
Our shop is not a restaurant but rather a communal dining room. We do not fire our orders based on your arrival time, we do not use heating lamps and we get sad when our food gets cold because a guest is late. Pretend you are coming to dinner at grandma… mine used to smack me if I was late for Sunday supper. We won’t get physical, we will just start without you around 7.15.
We will offer a selection of Prosecco, Red and White wine, Beer and Digestif by the glass or by the bottle.
If you have been saving a bottle of Brunello for a special occasion feel free to bring it, we charge a $15 corking fee with a maximum of 1 bottle for every two people.
Taxes and Fees are included in this purchase.
Alcohol and Gratuity are not included.
