Limited to 14 guests

About 200 million years ago, the region was part of a vast, tropical sea which created limestone soils, the secret behind the zesty minerality that is a hallmark of Burgundy wines.

To the ‘vignerons” (winemakers/ growers), Burgundy is not only the original home of the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes they are famous for, but also the site of the "terroir" that best expresses their character – elegant, aromatic, complex, and highly enjoyable.

Join us for a multi-course dinner of the region’s edible delights. Slurp escargot, and let us transport your sense of smell with Burgundy’s elegant, aromatic, and complex wines.

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!
