Little Italy Favorites: Summer Features

Available July 9th - September 9th*

Celebrate the summer season with us as we enjoy classic favorites like Lobster Fondue al Forno and save room for this summer's Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish® featured dessert, Gigi's Butter Cake. There's a story behind this dish: 
Vice President of Operations - who we lovingly call Gigi - is a sucker for a good butter cake. In fact, one of her favorites is served in a local Dallas restaurant. She challenged Chef Jeff Mann, Senior Manager of Culinary Operations, to come up with a better version, and they did - 50 iterations later! Gigi's Butter Cake is rich and decadent, served over a honey mascarpone cream, alongside roasted balsamic grapes. It's love at first bite!
