Dining etiquette dictates that one use a soup spoon for soup, a dessert spoon for dessert soups, and a lobster hammer. Harness multiple courses of utensils with this Groupon.
$89 for Nine-Course European Tasting Dinner for Two ($359 Value)
Ciao Bella’s chefs prepare elegant, edible representations of countries across Europe. Though their tasting menus vary, courses may include Sicilian-inspired mediterranean prawns wrapped in pastry and fried in olive oil, Czech-inspired mesclun greens with anchovy and aioli dressing, Greek-inspired wild salmon with a honey-and-walnut baklava sauce, and fried mascarpone cheesecake for dessert.
This Groupon also includes a complimentary 3- to 5-ounce bottle of Ciao Bella's premium seasonal red-pepper-and-rosemary extra-virgin olive oil to take home. Wine suggestions will be provided, and bottles are available at an adjacent shop.
Pavoni's Wine Bar at Ciao Bella
Ciao Bella champions the disappearing art of fine dining. From a carefully selected, ever-rotating menu of worldly cuisine to thoughtful suggestions of wine pairings from its newly constructed wine bar, Pavoni's Wine Bar, the restaurant invites patrons an elegant escape from the slowly approaching laser of daily life. At night, Ciao Bella’s dining room becomes the launching point for an edible international journey, as 8- to 16-course French degustation dinners provide tastes of different European countries. Vichyssoise, a potato cream soup, transports taste buds to the cafés of Paris, while pastry-wrapped prawns evoke all the flavors of the Mediterranean with none of the excessively wet water. Global flavors are infused into earlier meals as well: breakfast offers traditional belgian waffles and Parisian-style french toast, while lunch sates with hungarian meatballs and antipasto platters full of cured meats, imported cheeses, and olives.
