There is a new restaurant in town that everyone is talking about for its elegance, creative menu, and unique place in the Cleveland restaurant landscape: Restaurant Trentina. Awhile ago, Matthew and I had the pleasure of attending their family and friends preview of Trentina’s dinner service and loved every amazing bite.
Trentina is expanding its offerings to include lunch service, starting on Tuesday, September 9. Lunch at Trentina will not be a rushed kind of affair. Rather, Chef Jonathon Sawyer wants us “take back the lunch hour,” by enjoying a true dining experience in the middle of the day.
The a la carte menu combines Northern Italian-style cooking with local ingredients. The menu includes salad, crudo, pasta, entree, and dessert options. From perusing the menu, the Ravioli Charcuterie and the Chicken Boudino Bianco sound like must-orders for me. And the early reviews are quite positive! I definitely want to be a lady who lunches at Trentina!
Lunch service will be available at Restaurant Trentina on Tuesdays through Fridays from 11am to 2pm and reservations are encouraged. To help you take back your lunch hour at Trentina, I have a $25 gift card to give away! Here’s how to enter (you can do one, two, three, or all four entries, just leave a separate comment for each):
1. Check out Trentina’s lunch menu and leave a comment letting me know which item you would most like to order.
4. Tweet the following phrase and leave a comment letting me know you tweeted:
I want to take back my lunch hour at @TrentinaCLE thanks to @WhyCLE: http://wp.me/p1fb9r-26g
You can tweet once per day for additional entries, just leave a separate comment each time you tweet.
The giveaway will close on Monday, September 8 at 11:59pm and the winner will be announced the following day. Good luck!
***Disclosure: I was invited to attend the friends and family preview of Trentina’s lunch service. Sadly, I had to decline due to scheduling conflicts. I received a $25 gift card to give away. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
