Parkside Projects’ Southern Italian restaurant, Olive & June, is set to celebrate it’s 5-year anniversary this February! To celebrate, the restaurant will be offering a delicious rotating Pasta Tasting Menu curated by Executive Chef Brian Moses during the month of February. The menu will highlight a variety of pastas that have been served at the restaurant since its opening back 2012.

 

Owner Shawn Cirkiel and his wife named the restaurant after their grandmothers, Olive & June.  The restaurant opened in 2012 with an emphasis on making as many as 12 different kinds of in-house pasta every day. The year listed next to each pasta name on February’s special menu represents the year in which the dish was served.

 

The restaurant will serve a 5-course option as well as a 3-course option. The first half of the month (2/1-2/15), the menu will include the following:

5-Course Pasta Tasting Menu

  • Butternut raviolo, brown butter, sage, golden raisin mostarda (2015)
  • Risotto – shallot, garlic, walnut pesto, parm, celery (2013)
  • Gnocchi, smoked rainbow trout, broccoli, pear, radish (2016)
  • Pappardelle, short rib, sun choke, apple, smoked caciovello (2014)
