On Monday April 14th, Basilio Pesce hangs out with Matty Matheson (Parts & Labour), Matt Demille (Drake by the Lake) and Local Kitchen & Wine Bar in Parkdale for the next chef collaboration pop-up dinner - RED SAUCE. Come see what the boys have thrown together. Word on the street is that the menu for the evening is made up of 2 dishes submitted by each chef, one cold and one hot. Please not that this is not a ticketed event and the menu is a la carte.
The little room just east of Roncesvalles smells like an Italian deli—the sweet, meaty aroma of high-quality salumi—but it looks more like a rec room, with T-shirts on a laundry line and a boar’s head mounted above the door. Add Gio Rana’s blue-collar suburban Italiana to the Black Hoof’s charcuterie obsession and you start to get close to the vibe at Local. What makes it unique is the energy of the two friends from Woodbridge who created it: chef and salumi master Fabio Bondi and host Michael Sangregorio. - TORONTO LIFE
So come down to Parkdale and sample some dishes from all three chefs for the night and take advantage of the half price bottles of wine. Tables can be booked through Local Kitchen directly. So friends…. if you’re not hitting up Porzia for our Prix Fixe Monday then i hope we’ll see you at RED SAUCE on the 14th.
Hello friends! so as the summer approaches, our Lasagne Sundays also must come to a close. Last night for Lasagne will be on Sunday April 13th.
To recap our Lasagne Sundays – that’s a choice of salad with a generous serving of our meat lasagne (normally beef but sometimes pork and if you’re lucky you get lamb) and a 4oz glass of red or white wine for just $30. It’s not good bye it’s farewell till the winter. And don’t you worry friends, we have a new surprise launching on Sundays starting in May…. and it’s a good one…… stay tuned.

Spring-cleaning means out with the old and in with the new therefore, we are flipping our cocktail list with some bold, refreshing cocktails perfect for the soon to be changing weather, and created by our new resident bartender Aja Sax. On that note, we are still offering Lasagna Sunday (great for the kids), where you get a piece of our delicious lasagna that everyone is talking about, a choice of salad and a glass of wine for $30, as well as Cheap Date Wednesday where all plates are $10 perfect for sharing and trying everything on the menu!
Easter this year seems to fall later than usual, so just to give you all a heads up, we will be opened on Good Friday for our regular hours and closed on Easter Sunday. For those of you who will be staying in town for the long weekend, come for a glass and vino and some off menu seafood options in celebration of the holiday.
It really has been a long cold winter and we’re hoping that our spring won’t be so wet and grey. Thank you again for your patronage through the troublesome season and for keeping our ever-growing Parkdale on the map. We are very excited for all the events we have coming to you this spring/summer 2014.
2014 is going to be a great one.
