Del Posto @nicks on broadway!

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

I am so excited to announce that later this month I will be teaming up with my friend, the very talented Chef Mark Ladner, of Del Posto in New York City, for an amazing collaborative dinner right here in Providence at nicks on broadway!


The dinner will be held on Thursday September 25th, 2014.

We will be closed for regular dinner service to make this dinner extra special.  There will be a very limited amount of seats available, so don’t miss out!  Book now!

Tickets will be $150 per person, which is inclusive of a reception cocktail, bubbles & snacks, 7 course dinner with incredible wine pairings & gratuity.  What a deal!  It does not include applicable taxes.  
The reception will start @6pm & we will sit-down for dinner @7pm 


The menu will include a combination of Mark & my food styles and feature meats, fish, shellfish, late summer vegetables, fruits, cheeses, handmade pastas & sweets.  And did I mention that the entire night, from reception through dessert, will be GLUTEN FREE!


With Mark’s prolifically-delicious Italian-inspired cooking and our RI summer bounty of ripe tomatoes, herbs, peppers, squashes & chilies, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to work with our friends @ Frederick Wildman & Sons and feature some of our  most favorite Italian winemaking families and their beautiful wines.  Expect to see special selections from Marchesi di Barolo & Nino Negri to name a few.
