September Sunday Feast at Tavolàta is Cuisine of the Mediterranean

The September Feast at Tavolàta celebrates the wonderful flavors of the Mediterranean with a menu that travels though Spain, France, and Italy. Chef Addam Buzzalini starts the September 7 meal in Malaga with a summer gazpacho and moves though Spain’s coastal cities before going on to France and its island of Corsica for fresh oysters. After France, it’s over to Italy for two classic hearty dishes, then a beautiful dessert from Malta!

Dinner is $65 per person and as the Sunday Feasts often sell out, reservations are required.

Here’s the menu:

First (Spain):

  • Malaga Porra Anteguerana: tomato gazpacho with air-cured ham
  • Valencia Arros amb Costra: hand-made sausages with red pepper sauce and a fried egg
  • Barcelona Tapas: country olives, prawns with garlic, smoked mussels, and 18-month Manchego with tomato-rubbed crostini and olive oil

Second (France):

  • Marseille Bouillabaisse with local fish and shellfish and traditional rouille toast
  • Corsica Freshly-shucked oysters, cured meats, and grilled Loupe de Mer with peppers and onions

Third (Italy):

  • Sardinia Wild Boar Ragu with fregola sarda
  • Rome Tripe stewed in tomato sauce with Pecorino Romano


  • Malta Goat Cheese Panna Cotta with smoked local honey, king figs, and pastry

Dinner will be served family style at the communal table (tavolàta) where seating is limited to 26 guests. Dinner begins at 6pm and the cost is $65 per person. Reservations are required. Please call 206.838.8008 to reserve your spot.
