A Tuscan Picnic: Friday, August 26
What better way to celebrate the bountiful harvest in the final week of August than with a menu of classic Italian dishes from the region that brought us Chianti, Chianina beef and Brunelleschi’s dome? Friday night’s menu will be available a la carte, but can also be enjoyed as a prix fixe menu for two (those porterhouse steaks are certainly meant to be shared!). We’ll also have three Italian whites and a Chianti available by the glass—or as wine flights, if you’d prefer to sample all four…

  • Crostini misti: A selection of classic Tuscan crostini—fresh tomato, chicken liver, oyster mushroom
  • Aquacotta: vegetable soup finished with a poached egg
  • Fiore di Zucca: Zucchini flowers stuffed with housemade ricotta and chevre and served over an heirloom tomato salad with roasted tomato coulis
  • Bistecca alla Fiorentina: Charcoal-grilled Misty Mountain Farm porterhouse (approximately 17 oz.), rubbed with rosemary and served over cannellini beans and wilted kale—just like they do it in Florence…
  • Panna Cotta: Summery Italian custard served with honeyed peaches and toasted almonds
