The Abundance of La Tavola

Fülle. 丰富. изобилие. Abbondanza. No matter how you say it, abundance is a very good thing. Especially when it comes to Italian food.

La Tavola‘s fifth annual Abbondanza menu October 3-13 celebrates the culinary cornucopia of central Italy’s most famous regions—Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria, et al—with dishes hand-crafted by Executive Chef Brent Banda to showcase all the goodness this special area has to offer.
