Chef Antonio Bettencourt Revisits His Culinary Roots for Special Prix Fixe Wine Dinner at 62 Restaurant & Wine Bar
WHAT: Chef Antonio Bettencourt has been racking up accolades and awards for his modern take on regional Italian classics at his restaurant 62 Restaurant & Wine Bar in Salem, MA. But Bettencourt’s culinary roots actually began in regional French cuisine. Working with Chef Amanda Lydon, first at Metro Brasserie and then at Upstairs on the Square, where he served as the executive sous chef to both Lydon and Chef Susan Regis, Chef Bettencourt was distinctly French-focused before moving to Italian cuisine later in his career.
On Sunday, March 27th, 2011 from 6:30PM-8:30PM, Chef Bettencourt will return to his culinary roots as he presents “Bienvenue au 62” a special Burgundy wine dinner in partnership with the French Cultural Center of Boston and Destination Salem. The three course food & wine pairing will take guests on a virtual gastronomical journey to the French culinary hub. Guests can learn more about French culture with information provided by the French Cultural Center, and for those new to Salem, MA, Destination Salem will be providing information to guests about what’s on tap this spring and summer for the seaside town.
This 3-course dinner includes all paired wines and is $75 per person + tax and gratuity. Reservations are required by calling (978) 744-0062.
