Andrew Weissman at il Sogno
Chef Andrew Weissman will host a five-course Italian Signature Experience at il Sogno Osteria on May 3. Il Sogno is at the Pearl Brewery.
The casual dinner celebrates seasonally appropriate, authentic foods from Italy and features special dishes that have never been on il Sogno's menu.
Advance registration is available for a limited number of seats. Tickets are $200 a person and will benefit the Children's Bereavement Center of South Texas.
During the dinner, Weissman will explain the menu and courses, which will include antipasti, salad, risotto, meat and fish with vegetables and dessert. Il Sogno sommelier Marc Benton Smith also will discuss the wines that will be served with each course.
"In Italy, it's all about art of the table, people sitting down breaking bread together," Weissman said. "That's the purpose of this event — bringing people together and sharing something wonderful."
Tickets to the event are tax deductible. To reserve your seat, contact Christin Gish at 210-736-4847 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
