• Italian Passover at Perbacco 2017

    You’re invited to join us for the tenth annual Italian Passover at Perbacco. Chef Staffan and our dear friend Chef Joyce Goldstein will be collaborating for two evenings — Wednesday, April 12 and Thursday, April 13, 2017.

     

    As is our tradition, the dinner will feature a special four-course menu inspired by guest Chef Goldstein’s vibrant collection of Jewish-Italian recipes from her cookbook, Cucina Ebraica, and her latest book, The New Mediterranean Jewish Table.

     

    The dinner is priced at $58 per person, excluding tax and gratuity, and the full menu can be found below (subject to change). Kosher wines from Covenant Winery, festive cocktails, as well as our complete beverage list will be available to compliment your meal.
