The Matriarch Dinner – Bring The Wine!

Arts District, Los Angeles Downtown


Pop-up space
Banquet (20+ Guests)
This night is a tribute to the Italian-American women who raised me. You will experience the smell and taste of a South Philadelphia kitchen along with flavors that I have adopted in Los Angeles. Join me for 5 authentic courses. Relax, bring some wine, meet new people, and learn a little family history.
