Today we were gathered at Bacaro, one of the Italian Kitchen Table restaurants, here for a cocktail reception to celebrate their latest promotion. The photos taken and used here, were from the night’s small plates and subsequent festivities.
Starting August 15th and running until September 21, 2022 eight highly celebrated Italian specialty restaurants are inviting the city to “Summer like an Italian”. To do this by participating in their passport program; where patrons visit local top Kitchen Table Group restaurants and collect stamps for dining in. Doing so earns them a chance to win over $1,000 in gift card prizes. Now this is a fun and clever way to get patrons out and dining at restaurants (again).
The Eight participating Kitchen Table restaurants and caffès are as follows. Many are popular classics and some more new; each sure to satisfy any pizza or pasta cravings you may have, coupled with delicious coffee and fine wine. Ask For Luigi, Bacaro, Carlino, Di Beppe, Farina a Legna, Giovane Caffè, Motoretta, and Pizzeria Farina.
Each restaurant is inviting passport holders to stop by for a regionally inspired dish that speaks to the story of each establishment. Simply pick up a passport from any of the participating locations. Not only is this booklet a guide to all the restaurants, but it also explains the Italian elements and inspiration of each dish, for each. The idea is to help diners getaway without leaving the country, giving them the ability to explore the more exotic regions of Italy through food. With the passport you collect stamps, the goal is to earn 8 for trying 8 of the available dishes (listed below). This is in order to win a number of Kitchen Table Group gift cards.
