Delicious is more than an adjective when it comes to dishes from one of America’s most acclaimed names in Italian cuisine, Chef Michael White. James Beard Award-winning White is the driving force behind the Michelin-starred spots Marea and Ai Fiori in New York, amongst an array of other successful restaurants, and has been named of the 40 most influential New Yorkers under 40 by Crain’s New York Business. White will join Executive Chef Antonio Mermolia in his Lido Restaurant at The Surf Club, for a tour de force dinner tribute to haute Italian cuisine. Italian-born Mermolia has practically perfect his Southern Italian cuisine, and is a devotee of taking the road less traveled when it comes to creating flavorful and unexpected dishes. Together, these culinary powerhouses will transform this special Festival dinner into an unforgettable showcase of the soulful cuisine and convivial spirit of Italy, complemented by wine from the Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits portfolio.
To offer the safest experience and adhere to each restaurant’s unique seating capabilities, tickets will be sold in the specific table configurations listed at checkout. We cannot guarantee that multiple tables purchased for the same event will be located next to each other, but will do our best to accommodate this when venue floorplans allow for it.
