Similar to last year’s sold-out event, each evening will lead with a curated cocktail hour, followed by a seated dinner featuring a crafted menu by Chef Mario Carbone. Throughout the evening guests will enjoy CARBONE’s classic dishes, theatrics, live performances, and authentic Italian touches that guests have grown to love and expect from the fan-favorite restaurant.

Guests can visit to be added to the waiting list or request a table. Tables can accommodate between 8-14 people. American Express Platinum Card® and Centurion® Members will get first access to individual tickets starting April 6, 2023, here.
