Throughout his career, his mission has been to bring authentic high-end Italian cuisine to the United States.
Chef Donna has created an extraordinary menu exclusively for the DC bailliage that highlights flavors he grew up with. He will prepare it personally, just for us. The evening will begin with a cocktail created by Chef Donna followed by a seven-course dinner the featuring bounty of the fall harvest and the finest rare ingredients. In the hands of this expert chef, the menu simply shines. A bottle of wine from the Chaîne’s cellar accompanies the dinner.
