$35 for a Giada Valenti Concert for Two Plus Two Glasses of Wine and Dessert at a Later Date ($81 Value)
Songbird Giada Valenti performs at the historic Lafayette Theater on Sunday, February 10, from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets include a 15% discount on lunch or dinner at Mamma Vittoria's or Marcello's (valid January 1–March 31), 20% off Marcello's cooking classes (valid January–November), and a 20% discount on one case of wine at Liquorland. Groupon holders also get two glasses of house wine and a dessert to be redeemed on a second visit to Marcello’s on February 15 or later. The dessert and wine may only be redeemed in Marcello’s bar area, unless the Groupon holder is also ordering an entree.
Inside the kitchen of Marcello’s, teardrop chandeliers cast their warm gaze over copper cookware and a dining table that wraps around the stove. Here, Chef Marcello sheds light on the techniques of preparing Italian cuisine during cooking classes and private parties. In such events, up to 12 guests can sip wine while he picks recipes secretly stored in his chef’s hat and demonstrates how to assemble artful dishes, which may include risotto with chicken and spinach or pasta with fresh tomato mozzarella and basil. Although the private dining experience is the easiest way to witness Chef Marcello’s passion for sharing the cuisine of his native Italy, guests can also enjoy his dynamic entrees without front-row seats at the chef’s table. In the restaurant’s dining room, floor-to-ceiling murals depict the Tuscan countryside and ferns adorn honey-colored walls as diners anticipate hearty meals. Atop crisp white tablecloths, servers present platters of housemade pastas and veal prepared seven ways. The knowledgeable staff is also happy to recommend pairings from the vast Italian wine list.
