This will not be an actual Seder meal, but a meal where longtime Single Gourmet member Marilyn Schulder has graciously offered to lead us in — according to her — only the most fun parts of the seder! Her friend and also longtime member Lyle Perlmutter will also assist. Scroll down for menu details.
Chef Paolo came to New York City as a child when his mother Erminia Lattanzi left Italy for Brooklyn in 1965. Erminia developed a knack for cooking eggplant, and Paolo learned and perfected the art of making mozzarella. What was once a personal passion turned into professional ambition in 1978, when the Lattanzi family opened a Roman Italian Cucina in the Upper East Side, named Trastavere (later called Tevere). The business quickly grew, as word spread about the authentic Italian cuisine that was difficult to find elsewhere (not to mention the ingenious eggplant dishes and fine homemade mozzarella).
In the spring of 1984, Lattanzi was opened at 361 West 46th Street. Now in its 35th year, this unique Italian Restaurant is a classic on Theater Row. Renowned for its “Roman style specialties”. Over the years, the neighborhood has developed into a cultural and culinary epicenter, and Lattanzi has grown from a one-room Italian cucina into a multi-story ristorante with seating for over 300. With a Zagat rates it a 4.3 and calls it “Something “special” on Restaurant Row, this “better-than-average” with an unusual menu of Roman-Jewish specialties; a strictly “old-guard” experience with gracious service and a charming setting featuring lots of dining nooks and crannies.”
