Centre Street Café is heading north – northern Italy, to be specific – for their next Tuesday wine dinner. On March 14th, they’ll be presenting a four-course menu matched with wines for a little tableside travel. Plates like ricotta and egg ravioli and braised duck leg with tomato ragu will bring the flavors of regions like Lombardy and Veneto down to Boston. Wine director Billy Pola has selected complementary wines to bring out the robust flavors and the full menu (below) is available for $44 per person. Dinner runs from 5:00-9:30pm—reserve a table by calling 617.524.9217.
