Join us during Chanukah for an Italian and potato latke meal in Midtown with cuisine directly inspired by owner and executive chef Jay B. Mitchell’s hundreds of past visits to Italy. “The trick, I believe,” wrote a reporter for Short and Sweet NYC, “is when combining local produce with unmatchable Italian staples, Gente manages to produce the essence of a ‘local’ Italian dining experience in a neighborhood notorious for grab -and-go commuter clientele”. We start off with an antipasti combo of carcofi alla judea & Heirloom tomatoes with buratta then a pasta combo of pumpkin ravioli and multigrain spaghetti with zucchini & pine nuts paired with a wine tasting of Orvieto Secco (white), then entrée choices of filet of sole al’Italienne or rack of lamb with warm apples & lentils paired with Nero Davola (red) and we end our meal with pastichiera cheese cake or macedonia fruit salad.
