‘Little Slice of Normal’ Dining Experience: BIG NIGHT Dinner
One of the greatest foodie movies of all time, 'Big Night' is the story of two brothers, recent immigrants to America, who, in an effort to save their authentic New Jersey restaurant from a rival Italian restaurant, put on an evening of incredible, authentic Italian food and music.
Join us as we go beyond the movie set, taking you back to the land crisscrossed by mountains, bordered by seas, drenched by sun, and forever enriched by the genius of da Vinci, Michelangelo, Puccini, Sinatra, Bocceli and Louis Prima.
Your senses will be spellbound as our own CCKC family chefs re-create this famous meal, right down to the moment in the movie where the cult Italian dish known as Timpano, (layers of sausage, ragu, eggs and pasta sealed in a pastry dough) is pulled from the oven, flipped over and sliced, all to the applause of the audience of diners.
It’s a foodie movie for sure, but it is so much more. It is about the food and music of Italy not as a subject, but as a language by which one can speak to the gods, seduce and inspire emotion. We promise not only an authentic experience as close to the movie as we can get right down to the Louis Prima music and extra-long tables dressed in white linens. The Italian wine will flow on what is sure to be one Big Night to savor and one great big 'Little Slice of Normal'.
