August Long Table

We're staying with the warm southern climes & focusing on Sicily for the next Long Table Dinner at Bridge Street.

The cuisine of Sicily while largely influenced by Italy also has Spanish, Greek & Arab flavours. Olives, citrus & grapes are the base for many traditional dishes & our meal! Of course as the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, the ocean will contribute to the table too!

The menu? Orange, fennel, red onion & walnut salad, seared fresh sardines, octopus, mussels, clams & prawns tossed w/ Sicilian pesto & pasta, dessert of cannoli w/ ricotta, citrus & berry filling.

The wines? Primula Catarraro Sicilia IGT - the most widely planted grape in Sicily, Cubia IGT 2007 Sicilian - said to hold the rays of the sun and Branciforti Nero d'Avola IGT - considered the most important red grape of Sicily.

Seating is limited to 24 for each evening. Dinner begins at 7 p.m. & cost per person is $50 plus hst & grat ($63.50).

For more info or to book your seat at the table, call Andrew at 250.590.4388 or email andrew@primastrada.com
