Apertivo is an Italian tradition where bars and restaurants offer small free buffets while they sell drinks at full price. Apertivo at Bufad is how a Philadelphia BYOB makes the event work for them.
This sunday night, the 13th and Spring Garden pizzeria is offering a $10, all-you-can-eat buffet that includes antipasti (beets, carrots, pickled fennel, boiled eggs, roasted olives), chicken liver pate, Roman slices of pizza and roast pork. You bring the apertif of your choice and Bufad will provide the non-alcoholic mixers. The mixers will include grapefruit and mint, strawberry and basil, and lemon and tarragon.
Apertivo runs from 8 p.m. to close on Sunday, May 12th. Salute!
