Carnivores will want to head to picturesque Poggio for two marvelous meaty events.
First up, every Monday through March 30, the Italian restaurant will feature a Porchetta Dinner for $16 per person.
Executive Chef Peter McNee learned the Tuscan technique in Italy, in which a small pig is deboned and stuffed with herb sausage. Then, it is roasted in a wood-burning rotisserie until the skin is super crispy and the meat tender as can be.
Next, Feb. 3-7, the restaurant will host its second annual Gran Bollito Misto dinners. This extravaganza features a cart that rolls to your table with seven slowly simmered meats (such as tongue, brisket, veal breast, oxtail, and chicken) to choose from. A bevy of sauces accompany the mountain of meat.
