Zeppoleme + OmNomCT team up for four course wine dinner on 1/30

8 Jan

 

Zeppole.  Doesn’t that word instantly make you smile and drool at the same time? Yes, those fried pillowy puffs of doughy goodness that make you feel like a kid again, are the things that dreams are made of.

It’s because of that, that we’re proud and excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Zeppoleme of Port Chester for an exciting, “A Night out with OmNomCT and Friends” event on 1/30 at 7 pm.  You’ll have a chance to meet and talk with both of us and the awesome Zeppoleme owners Marc Tessitore (he also owns Nessa next door) and Robert Squeri as we all chow down on some killer good food and drink some delicious wine.

If you haven’t had the chance to eat at this awesome restaurant that we have raved about (and The New York Times too), then you MUST get in on this dinner on 1/30 starting at 7 pm.  There will be enough food and wine to feed an army of OmNomivores for just $29 + tax and tip.  Now that’s a deal!  Call them up at (914) 481-5900 to make your reservation and get your spot…only about 25 seats, get calling!

We hope to see you there!
