Usher in 2017 with an Italian Tradition!

As we anticipate the fresh start that a new year brings, we are giving you a rare opportunity to also celebrate New Year’s Eve in the Italian tradition with Cenone di San Silvestro – the Feast of St. Sylvester, Saturday, December 31, 5:30 pm-midnight.  The night before a new year, Italians believe a person should eat lentils – a symbol of wealth – and pork – a symbol of life’s fullness.  $89 (beverages, tax & gratuity not included).  Complimentary champagne toast at midnight.  Reserve your table today by calling us at (202) 835-0459.  Felice Anno Nuovo!
