The bimonthly dinner series, Tasting Brooklyn Dining Club, is having its Italian Classics with a Modern Reinterpretation tonight at Fornino Park Slope at 7pm. Diners will be welcomed with a housemade blueberry limoncello (who doesn't like limoncello?), accompanied by appetizers. Following this happy hour will be a five course sit-down dinner featuring duck rollatini paired with Insolia 2010 Cusumano, Sicily, among other delicious items. Dinner will be led by co-owners Chris Walsh and Dave Kearns, along with Executive Chef Kurt Eggers, who will be discussing the seasonal approach to modern Italian cuisine.
The founder of Tasting Brooklyn, Sharon Beason, has launched the Tasting Brooklyn Dining Club, which is a series of fun, affordable, and informative dinners that highlight Brooklyn's culinary diversity. Hosted at local restaurants, this series allows fellow Brooklyn food-lovers to meet and learn from the borough's best foodies.
The five course dinner is $55, including one drink, tax, gratuity, and a $10 Fairway coupon. There is an optional pairing of four wines with the dinner for $20. Tickets are available here.
