This holiday season we are celebrating 50 years of Picasso. “The commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Picasso’s death is, above all, a wonderful opportunity to celebrate his work and his artistic legacy”. It’s great to know that the artworks will be available for sale everyday now through December.
The dinner will be an intimate gathering with a multi-course menu created by master chef Marco Barrila nominated as New York’s 2023 Tota Pulchra Chef. The inspiration for the cuisine is a fusion of Picasso’s favorite dishes with influences from Italy, France and Spain in Chef Barrila’s signature style, of course. Menu highlights will include a variety of tapas – cava foam with caviar, catalana sausage and beans, marisco azafran – suquet de peix (fish stew) – fresh pasta cannelloni carne d’olla and paella del toro to name a few, concluded with a signature dessert.
