News from Scout supporter Cibo Trattoria
Vancouver, BC | Cibo Trattoria, the award-winning Italian eatery in downtown Vancouver’s chic Moda Hotel, is serving a taste of Tuscany. Executive Chef Neil Taylor and his talented kitchen brigade have used fine, fresh ingredients to craft a three-course menu that promises to transport guests to the idyllic Italian region.
Available until February 6 in addition to the regular a la carte menu, guests will savour three courses beginning with a choice of ribolita – soup of cannellini beans, bread, kale and extra-virgin olive oil — or chicken-liver Toscana served with house-made pickles and bruschetta. The main course features include: cacciucco, a Tuscan fish stew of rock cod, mussels, clams, octopus, tomato and chilli; tagliata di manzo, a marriage of skirt steak, cannellini beans, rosemary and green peppercorns; and pici, hand-rolled Tuscan spaghetti with pork ragu and pecorino. The grand finale is panforte – spiced fruit and nut cake — or chocolate nemesis river café.
Cibo Trattoria’s three-course Tuscan menu is $35 + tax per person, available in addition to the regular a la carte menu until February 6, 2011. Learn more about Cibo after the jump…
