Meaty Times at Poggio in Sausalito
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.
