Postcards from Italy
Just back from the boot, Tidbit owners John and Nic along with Chef Kurt spent ten, food-filled days taste-touring Campania drawing inspiration for the menu back home. “Neapolitans pontificate over the correct cooking time for the perfect Genovese or Ragù the way Americans discuss the latest headline on CNN,” Kurt mused. The three coursed their way through everything from authentic Neapolitan pizza to fried shellfish platters to tripe that dangled in showy garlands from shop windows. Lavish, family meals were shared throughout Campania, none of which were complete without Tiramisù, Sfogliatelle and rum-kissed Babà. If you can’t swing a trip to Campania, Tidbit has a table just for you and a Spain-meets-Napoli menu to delight. Also, don’t miss out on half price pasta dishes tonight and every Wednesday until the boys return from their trip to Italy!

Get your tickets early: Second Annual Fall Cider Celebration
Nov. 12!

Get ready for one of the tastiest events of the season! Thursday, November 12 from 5:30-8:30 p.m., Ivar’s Salmon House taps into its love of hard cider, featuring a variety of regional and international hard cider producers, all accompanied by an array of hors d’oeuvres by Chef Jason Bray. Last year’s inaugural event was an overflowing success and sold out quickly; this year’s promises to be bigger than the last with at least 20 cider brands poured and a new “Best of” voting component. It’s by far the best way to celebrate the fall harvest. Although this event is still a month away, it’s definitely one to book soon! Thirty dollars per person, 21 and over please.
