December 17, Wednesday – Italian White Truffle Dinner ~~ Truffle Hunter & Truffle Hunting Dog!

OK. Read this. You know we do fresh Italian Truffles … and you know our dinners are (literally) awesome. BUT CHECK THIS OUT. For this dinner, we will have the Truffle Hunter himself, Umberto, joining the dinner … and very arguably better, you will get to meet the Truffle Hunting Dog too! A true bucket list experience. Chef Accursio is designing a 5-course dinner and the price is $240/person. The dinner is limited in seating and starts at 6:45pm. We will have Sharpies for Umberto to provide signatures … and an ink pad for the Truffle Dog’s paw prints. ;-) Truffle Craziness! ~~ Short video here. :-) ~~ RSVP Today ~~ View Menu

December 23, Tuesday – Odd Bins! ~~ Help us finish off some great wines!!

We buy a lot of great wines from all across Italy and all along the west coast of North America. Petra, Tommy, and I just did an inventory of our wine cellar — and we have lots of wine where we have just one or two bottles left. With just one or two bottles, we really can’t place them on our wine list – so now is the time to finish them off. And we need your help! So on this evening (and Tuesday, December 30 also) we will be opening many-many bottles and offering fun eclectic tasting flights at bargain prices. If you like wine – you can’t miss this! ~~ Contact us for more details

December 24, Wednesday – Christmas Eve Dinner at Solare

Please join us for a special Christmas Eve dinner — a Holiday Feast with some traditional dishes from Sicily! Chef Accursio will be sharing family recipes that he learned from his Mother and Grandmother back in Sicily. It is a 4-course dinner that Chef Accursio designed with a couple special surprises. The dinner is $59++ for adults and we can definitely do something simpler for kids with our kid’s menu. ~~ RSVP ~~ View Menu
