Piccolo’s 5-glass Wine Dinner with Food Pairing…


…wait – don’t we mean “5-course dinner with wine pairing”?  Actually, no.  Otherwise we would have written that.  Wine Dinner!  with Food Pairing!  It’s exactly what you think…and what we’ve always dreamed of:

Piccolo is having their monthly Cena al Contrario this Wednesday, June 24th.

This is not your typical wine dinner

Why reversal dinner? To us it means, backward, “au contraire”, “al contrario”, because instead of you first choosing the food and then picking wine to complement your choice, you’ll choose the wine first and we will pare it with the food!

One night a month, we will propose an incomparable wine list in the place of our exquisite food menu.  You will choose either three or five wines from a list of about 30 new labels, which have been hand picked exclusively for the evening by our sommelier Pietro Biondi. Your wine selection will determine the dish chef Roberto Ivan will prepare specifically to pair with your wine choices.

$70 the “mongolfiera” menu: three wines and three plates
$110 the “crociera” menu: five wines, and five plates
(taxes and gratuity are not included)

We have confirmed that there will be plenty of vegetarian food pairing options (hopefully at least 5!)

Reservations Required for Cena al Contrario and their host was noticeably thrilled to take ours.  And we didn’t even mention Yo! Venice.  (but by all means, mention Yo! Venice when you make yours!)
