Trattoria Gianni (1711 N. Halsted St.) is hosting a New Year’s Eve Celebration at its Lincoln Park restaurant, so last-minute planners can still make plans to ring in 2018 at one of the city’s most iconic Italian eateries.
Diners can choose between a special New Year’s Eve 4-course dinner for $59 including choice of antipasti, primi patti, secondi patti and dolci featuring items such as Polenta al funghi di Bosco (Polenta, wild mushrooms, scamorza cheese), Risotto Funghi (Italian Arborio rice, wild mushrooms, truffle oil & pecorino cheese), Tagliatelle al Sugo di Cinghiale (Home-made tagliatelle, wild boar sugo, and parmesan cheese), Rosticciana (Braised beef short ribs, greens, red wine and aromatic vegetables with soft polenta), Cacciucco alla Livornese (Mussels, clams, calamari, scallops, scampi, tilapia, octopus, cous-cous, fresh herbs, and tomato broth) and Panna Cotta di Vaniglia. Also, guests can order off the regular menu, will enjoy a prosecco toast at midnight and a live DJ will start at 7 p.m.
The restaurant has been in Lincoln Park since 1988, so Trattoria Gianni will celebrate its 30th Anniversary in 2018. Make a New Year’s Eve reservation at https://www.opentable.com/trattoria-gianni.
