New Kitchen Stars!

This Friday’s dinner is presented by our two new acquisitions of 2014! Emily and Fabio, one coming from Wisconson via Colorado and one coming from Sicily via Newport, will be presenting a very Sicilian dinner, with arancini, seafood spaghetti, a dish with rolled and filled flank steak,  and a delicate almond based cookie with some form of sorbetto. I can’t wait.
