Whatever your weekend plans are, leave lunch up to your friends at il Casale Lexington. Chef Dante de Magistris and his crew have added a special take-out café menu to their Saturday and Sunday offerings. Swing by between 11:30am and 3:00pm for your pick of panini, subs, sandwiches and salads to be enjoyed on-site out on their self-service patio or packed up and taken with you whether you’re heading off on a picnic or just heading home. You can place your order online or by phone (781.538.5846) and pick up your eats — everything from arancini and caprese salad to eggplant parm and the leaning tower of mortadella — from their take-out tent.
