It’s another “Culinary Culture Swap” Dinner At Osteria

smillieBack in February, the Osteria team invited Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman–the team behind Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen and Hog & Hominy in Memphis–into their kitchen for a dinner that they pitched as a “Culinary Culture Swap.” That one went pretty well, so now it looks like they’re doing it again.

On Wednesday night, Justin Smillie will be in the house at Osteria. He’s coming in from NYC, where he now runs the show at Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria after years spent training with Jonathan Waxman. Together, he and the Osteria cooks will be putting out a special 4 course dinner for $85 (tax, tip and booze not included).

Il Buco specializes in house-cured meats and home-baked breads, so odds are good that some of those will show up on the board. And as for Osteria? Well, we already know what they do well. Seating is limited, but there are still a few tickets left. If you’re into getting a taste of the Big Apple without hopping on a train, you know what to do.
