A Night in Sardinia: Regional Dinner

Registration closed

Friday, August 28, 2015 | 6:30PM
$185.00 per person plus tax
Limited to 18 guests

Join us for a tasting tour of the varietals of Sardinia, the Mediterranean's paradisiacal island off Italy’s west coast. Known for their progressive and dynamic wine industry, this has been a prized region since the times of the ancient Greeks.

We will be exploring wines produced from the extraordinary Cannonau—one of the principal grapes in the island, and also a relative of the more commonly known Granacha that flourishes in the island's warm & dry conditions, hilly terrain, and volcanic soil.

In recent times, Sardinia has been recognized as having one of the highest concentrations of centenarians in the world, attributed to their Mediterranean diet in general, and also to the elevated antioxidant properties found in the unique and delicious indigenous grapes of the island.

A multi-course dinner prepared by our private dining room Chef Matt Buehler paired with Sardinian wines by Dusan Vranic (Head Sommelier at Standard Grill Restaurant, Manhattan, NYC) . The evening begins with a reception accompanied by amuse bouche and prosecco. Included in the ticket price is all food, beverage, tax, and gratuity, as well as piccolo pasticceria to ensure you departs on a sweet note.

Barbara Lynch Book Dinner

Monday, April 24, 2017  |  6:30PM
$200  |  Limited to 18 guests

Celebrated chef Barbara Lynch credits the defiant spirit of her upbringing in tough, poor “Southie,” a neighborhood ruled by the notorious Whitey Bulger gang, with helping her bluff her way into her first professional cooking jobs; develop a distinct culinary style through instinct and sheer moxie; then dare to found an empire of restaurants ranging from a casual but elegant “clam shack” to Boston’s epitome of modern haute cuisine. She has won multiple James Beard awards, including Outstanding Restaurateur (only the second woman to win), an Amelia Earhart award winner for her success as a woman in a male-dominated field, and the Relais & Chateau designation of Grand Chef (one of only six in North America). She is the owner of Barbara Lynch Gruppo, which encompasses seven celebrated restaurants, including No. 9 Park, B&G Oysters, Drink, Sportello, and Menton. Three of her restaurants are anchored in and have spurred the revitalization of South Boston, her lifelong home. We are thrilled to have Barbara at Vetri Cucina and hope you can join us for this memorable event!
