Naturally, the occasion called for delicious food, courtesy of Chef Gabe Thompson and Epicurean Events. Signature hors d’oeuvres were passed around and guests enjoyed an assortment of delicious shared plates, including: fluke crudo with pineapple, dell’anima chicken spiadini with broccoli rabe pesto, ricotta crostini with honey and hazelnuts, chorizo-wrapped shrimp, L’Apicio rigatoni, and tomato gorgonzola. The favorite of the night seemed to be the grilled cheese tremazzini triangles and the arancini sausage and fontina.
