Trust me when I say skinny doesn’t feel nearly as good as this is going to taste. La Tavola once again gives weight to Bologna‘s nickname, “la grassa”—which literally means “the fat one”—by bringing back the fifth-annual La Grassa menu February 29-March 10.
Bologna—the capital of Italy’s fertile, food-producing Emilia-Romagna region—received this playful nickname in reference to the city’s cuisine which is big on flavors, preparations and enjoyment. Renowned for its culinary tradition, Bologna’s influence is made larger through the contributions of nearby towns and surrounding cities, such as Parma’s prosciutto, Reggio Emilia’s Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and Modena’s balsamic vinegar.
The decadent $35 3-course prix fixe menu (which is also available a la carte) will be offered in addition to most of the items on our regular dinner menu, too.
