Upcoming East End restaurant Roustabout is giving Portland the full-court press, popping up twice in one month. First it was a successful Tandem Coffee and Bakery collaboration; next comes tomorrow's six-course dinner at Piccolo. It should be an interesting opportunity to find out how Roustabout's anticipated Italian-American fare will differ from Piccolo's take on southern and central Italian cuisines. Piccolo chef and co-owner Damian Sansonetti has posted a variety of Instagram images advertising the event:
Tickets are $55 plus tax and gratuity for six courses and a cocktail; call the restaurant at (207) 747-5307 to reserve. From an event invitation: "Chef Anders Tallberg of Roustabout will be cooking along with Damian Sansonetti & Ilma Lopez of Piccolo to deliver a six course menu and Owner of Roustabout Kit Paschal will be mixing up a welcoming cocktail for you."
