This is not just another ‘Tuesday event’, no, not at all. Tasting Tuesdays at Antonio Ristorante are kicking off for the fall on Sept. 10 and if you have not been to one, this is your chance! Antonio Ristorante launched “Tasting Tuesdays” in 2016 to showcase Antonio’s impressive wine menu and do it at a price point that anyone can afford.
Tasting Tuesdays run during the Fall and Spring seasons. This Fall, Tuesday Tastings start on Sept. 10 from 6 to 7 p.m. and will run through mid-November (all Tasting Tuesdays events are from 6 to 7 p.m.)
The menu is laid out just like a food and wine pairing event, and each week, Antonio’s highlights three different pairings for their guests. They also send out a weekly “Tasting Tuesdays” email announcing the food and wine pairings.
As the evening gets started, the first hors d’ oeuvres are prepared table-side by Chef Antonio, giving guests a glimpse into his techniques and ingredients. He then guides guests through a hand-picked selection of three Italian wines, which are paired perfectly with three heavy hors-d’oeuvres.
For the first Tasting Tuesdays of the Fall season, the menu will include a Principessa Gavia paired with Prosciutto di Parma over Peaches. Next is guests will enjoy a Ser Lapo Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG paired with Penne Alla Piraino: Penne Rigate with Italian sausage, onions, sweet pepper and mushrooms in a tomato sauce. Lastly, a Mazzei Philip paired with Filetto di Manzo al Barbaresco: Sliced filet mignon topped with Barbaresco wine sauce. One of the great things about Tasting Tuesdays is that guests are able to enjoy a taste of Italy, with food and wines, and it’s only $25 per person!
