Fresh from a research trip throughout the vineyards of the Italian countryside, Rizzuto's Restaurant and Bar owner Bill Rizzuto will host an all-inclusive 6-course Italian Wine Dinner on Monday, June 25 from 7 to 9 pm for $55 at Rizzutos's newest location in Stamford. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE.
CTbites readers are invited to share in this playful multi-course Italian meal paired with wine varietals of the Donnachiara Winery in Avellino, Italy.
The 6-course menu begins with Rizzuto's signature antipasti reception. The following courses include a yellow fin tuna crudo, asparagus panna cotta with crispy fried rock shrimp and black truffle vinaigrette, followed by an artichoke confit ravioli, and a 24-hour braised lamb, fresh mint, English peas, and oven-roasted tomatoes. Finishing the savory with a main course of grilled veal sirloin, with sheep's milk ricotta roman "gnocchi," and braised cavolo nero with rosemary fig jus.
Make sure you save room for a refreshing Campari and blood orange sorbet with burnt orange biscotti, raspberry confit, and orange pop rocks.
Executive Chef Tony Camilleri has created this menu that is inspired by the dishes Bill discovered during his adventures in Italy and guests will be among the first to try the latest wines to join Rizzuto's already impressive wine list.
Don't miss this interactive, informative and delicious evening!
