In honor of our Italian mandolin virtuoso, we decided to have our series opening pre-concert dinner at Gusto Italian Kitchen – just minutes from the Saturday’s concert.

Dinner begins at 5:30PM and we asked the chefs at Gusto to prepare wine-pairings with each course to go along with our “Perfect Pairings” theme for the summer series. Yum!

More information and tickets for dinner are available online here or you can always call us at 512-300-2247.

– – On a side note – – It’s fitting that we are dining at Gusto on the evening of Rene Izquierdo’s return, because when he was last here for our Pasion series in 2009, we worked with the restaurant “La Sombra” to prepare our Cuban-themed reception. Guess what? La Sombra is now Gusto – and its still the same friends in charge!

Here’s the menu for Saturday night. As always, if you have any special dietary needs not met by this menu, please give us a call and we’ll gladly accommodate!

Buon Appetito!
