Thursday April 22nd: Homage Series: Massimo Bottura

This Thursday we continue our homage series with Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana.

I don't mean to be a party pooper, but are the classic dishes ever coming back? PBJ, MSF Rice...I miss that stuff.

We'll close for a while in early June, so we'll probably have a classics night in mid-late May.
