Your Gift For The Florentine’s Third Birthday


I love when businesses have birthdays, because unlike people, when a business has a birthday they usually are the ones giving some type of gift. Just like The Florentine’s upcoming birthday on November 11. The Italian restaurant will turn three and will be offering a special-priced birthday menu, one lavish getaway for two and extra perks for their loyalty members. The special a la carte birthday menu is three dishes for $11.11, yes on 11/11 you will be able to enjoy some of the amazing fare from Chef Chris Macchia. If you have never been to The Florentine (151 West Adams), you should take advantage of this deal, the food is absolutely delicious. I can say with full confidence that you won’t be disappointed. The three dishes available are as follows:


Carpaccio di Funghi cremini mushroom, mache, herbs, goat cheese, croutons


Carbonara housemade pancetta, pecorino, cracked black pepper, béchamel, fried egg


Fazzoletti whole wheat handkerchief pasta, duck sugo, salt cured olives, citrus, bay leaf

The menu is just the beginning of what they are giving away. If you’re not a loyalty member, this may be a good time to sign up. On November 11, Executive Chef Chris Macchia will lead loyalty card members through a cooking class followed by a pizza dinner with wine pairings. There will also be double points for loyalty members that dine at Florentine between 11/11 and 11/17.

The dinner and points are cool, but the biggest giveaway is clearly the luxury staycation package. Dine at The Florentine the week of their birthday (11/11-11/17) and enter their business card raffle for a chance to win a luxury staycation package. One lucky winner will delight in unwrapping their own birthday present that includes:
