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 nickname, “la grassa”—which literally means “the fat one”—by bringing back the sixth-annual La Grassa menu March 6-16.
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 $37 3-course prix fixe menu will be also be offered a la carte and in addition to most of the items on our regular dinner menu, too.
