This Week at Bettola

Between Magic City Art Connection's Corks & Chefs event, a New York bar chef joining us Saturday, May 7, and wine producers joining us for dinner, we are getting geared up for a busy week at Bettola. Here's  a look at what is coming up. 
  • Tomorrow visit us at the Corks & Chefs tent at Magic City Art Connection. Chef James Lewis will be there serving up a porchetta dish - pork belly and loin rolled with rosemary, garlic salt and fennel pollen, served on toasted bread and topped off with salsa verde. 
  • Friday May 6 is going to be a big day for us highlighted by a special guest bartender we are flying in from New York City. You definitely don't want to miss this. Remember when we told you Angel was in New York training with a genius mixologist a few weeks ago? Well now we are bringing the mixologist here for you. On Friday and Saturday, Miguel Aranda of Theatre Bar and Apotheke in New York will bring his libations to Bettola. We will roll out a special drink menu created by Miguel. He will be behind the bar with Angel giving you a taste of his perfect style and unique drinks. 
  • Also on Friday Miguel and Chef James will be wining and dining patrons at Shaia's in Mountain Brook for a special cocktail-party shopping event. James will be feeding the crowd pizza, antipastis and other small bites, and Miguel will be there mixing up his infamous cocktails. 
  • And if you notice a big table flowing with wine outside our restaurant that night, those are the Dalla Terra wine producers, one of our favorite wine carriers, who will be joining us for dinner to get a taste of Birmingham, and fill us in on what's new in the wine world. We will keep you posted on what we learn. 
We hope you can join us for all these exciting events.
