Quattro Mani: From Chicago For Chicago

Quattro Mani: From Chicago For Chicago

This year, Quattro Mani is all about Chicago! From chefs to producers to community members, this new take on an old classic is a series of cultural events happening on on Tuesdays in La Pizza & La Pasta.

Introducing Quattro Mani: From Chicago For Chicago! Why "quattro mani"? Because "four hands" are better than two! All year long, our newest dinner series will take place in La Pizza & La Pasta featuring the people, producers, and do-gooders of Chicago on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month!

On the second Tuesday of each month, a guest pasta chef will join our Executive Chef Will Serafini in the kitchen to create a unique dish available for one night only. Then, on the fourth Tuesday of each month, a guest pizza chef will join our head pizzaiolo, Simone Iavarone, from Rossopomodoro to sling a signature pizza available for one night only.

The common thread through the entire series is this: Chicago people and Chicago products. We did say this series is all about Chicago, after all!

The best part? A portion of all sales of the featured pizza and pasta dishes during this series will go to the Center On Halsted, the largest LGBTQ community center in the Midwest with more than 1,000 people walking through its doors every day.
