Angelena’s is pleased to offer a series of Supper Clubs, offered every other month, each themed around Italian traditions. Each dinner will be held in the main dining room at 6:00 p.m.
At each Supper Club, Executive Chef James Briscione will present a selection of welcoming aperitivos followed by a four-course dinner that will feature Italian favorites. In addition, wine pairings will be included as selected by Brooke Parkhurst, Wine Director.
Thursday, August 17: Mediterranean Sips
The word “Mediterranean” invokes sunshine, calm waters, beautiful countryside—and the most delicious wines in the world. The summer sipping wines produced in France, Greece and Italy range from crisp and light to delightfully round and full. Grab a glass and join Wine Director Brooke Parkhurst for a tasting tour around the Western Mediterranean. If you haven’t tried Greece’s fresh and minerally Assyrtiko grape, this is your chance! You will also enjoy France’s famous Provençal blend, and “Italy’s Etna Rosso.” Chef James Briscione will accompany the wines with light bites.

Thursday, October 19: Brother Fox Collaboration Dinner

Wine Director, Brooke Parkhurst, will pair with wines from the respective countries. Event cost is $150 per person (plus tax and gratuity). Click here for reservations.
Thursday, November 16: Champagne Dinner
Champagne – the drink of kings! The most elegant and iconic sparkler in the world represents celebration, luxury and fun. Although the Angelena’s wine list is all-Italian, there has always been room for a small, select group of premiere champagnes. Domaine Laurent-Perrier is at the top of Wine Director Brooke Parkhurst’s list.
The Laurent-Perrier Estate was founded in 1812. “Freshness, finesse and elegance” are hallmarks of their sparklers. The Domaine’s prestigious past can be enjoyed in every bottle—whether it be in their Ultra Brut, Blanc de Blanc or rosé.
Chef James Briscione and Parhurst will work closely with Michael Fix, Winebow’s lead luxury wine specialist, to lead guests through a luxury champagne tasting and dinner. Fresh Gulf seafood, light Italian cheeses and more will round out this memorable event. Event cost is $255 per person (all inclusive). Click here for reservations.
