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!

Wine Dinner

Wine Dinner with Silvano Brescianini of Barone Pizzini and Pievalta

Tuesday, May 16, 2017  |  6:30PM
$185  |  Limited to 18 guests

Please join us for a dinner with Silvano Brescianini, winemaker and director at Barone Pizzini in Franciacorta and Pievalta in Le Marche. Barone Pizzini dates back to 1870 and was the first producer in Franciacorta to practice organic farming. Franciacorta is considered a young region with its commercial origins starting in the 1960s. However, its Italian sparkling wine production dates back to the 16th century, with Barone Pizzini being one of the best representations from this region. Pievalta is located in the heart of the Castelli di Jesi. It’s a land renowned for its small, walled medieval villages and for the production of wines made from Verdicchio grapes. Pievalta produces all of their wine biodynamically, allowing the grape variety and terroir to freely express themselves. The wine pairing will highlight five different Franciacorta crus and two Pievalta wines, including their San Paolo Cru – one of the best subzones in Castelli di Jesi. Menu will feature dishes from both the Franciacorta and Marche regions.
