UPDATE: SOLD OUT Eat, drink, and party as the Romans do. Popina is hosting a fraschetta-inspired evening with Katie Parla. Fraschette are rural taverns that populate the hillside towns southeast of the Italian capital – a favorite escape among Romans, who flock to them in the summertime to beat the city heat and enjoy copious amounts of local wine paired with rustic food (think: Porchetta, cured meats, hunks of pecorino, crusty bread… you get the great idea).
Though traditionally located in the towns near Rome collectively called the Castelli Romani, for one night only you’ll find a fraschetta in Popina’s backyard.
The menu will feature fraschetta favorites, infused with local ingredients:
Plates of Prosciutto
Cheese boards including pecorino and ricotta
Fried Mortadella, Squash and Tomato Spiedini
Marinated Market Vegetables
Tomato Salad with Amatriciana Vinaigrette
Tickets are $45 (food only, inclusive of gratuity). Beverage is charged on consumption or guests may prepay $20 for an all-you-can-drink beverage package. Wine and beer will be provided by some of our favorite neighborhood partners.
