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 an Eight-Course French Tasting Dinner for Two ($240 Value)
Ciao Bella’s courses each provide elegant, edible representations of countries across Europe. While selections vary, a sample menu might include selections such as 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 French-meets-Italian fried mascarpone cheesecake. 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.
