big night

Just last week Jamie and I were talking to chef Sawyer about Big Night – a movie (and music) we all thoroughly enjoyed. We commented that the dinner we attended at Greenhouse reminded us of a scene out of this beloved movie. And now, we can do it all over again.

On Thursday, April 28, chef Michael Annandono of Michaelangelo’s in Little Italy is recreating the meal from Big Night:

  • Passed hors d’oeuvres
  • Zuppa: Minestrone soup and broken pasta
  • Risotto: Tri-color risotto (tomato, basil pesto, seafood)
  • Timpano (Pasta pie): Penne rigate, meatballs, cheese, hardboiled egg and pastry shell
  • Pollo: Roasted Cornish game hen and grilled asparagus
  • Pesce: Baked Alaskan halibut, red pepper polenta, lemon, and white wine
  • Suckling Pig: Roasted suckling pig, spinach, sausage and herbs carved tableside
  • Dolce: Tiramisu

The cost for this feast is a reasonable $75 pp. And there’s no waiting for Louis Prima.
