Michelin Starred La Botte debuts its new casual dining concept, LAperitivo, featuring a seasonal, four-course tasting menu and selection of local and international wines artfully procured by seasoned Chef and owner Stefano De Lorenzo. Located at 620 Santa Monica Blvd. in Santa Monica, La Botte, Italian for “the wine cask,” has been a landmark for lovers of authentic and contemporary hand-crafted Italian cuisine for more than seven years.
“We are delighted to offer our esteemed clientele a delicious new way to enjoy La Botte’s Italian cuisine and culture in a more casual setting,” says Chef De Lorenzo. “LAperitivo is perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail hour or to gather with friends and enjoy delicious food and wine.”
LAperitivo fosters an inviting dining atmosphere with large communal tables where the Italian tradition of breaking bread and pouring wine can be shared. LAperitivo’s palate- pleasing, seasonal, four-course tasting menu is handmade from scratch in La Botte’s kitchen, incorporating organic ingredients from local farmer’s markets and offered for an enticing set price of $20. The menu is comprised of a variety of delicious Italian cuisine such as Classic Lasagna, Luna Oysters, Trota (trout) and Mushroom Gelato with a choice of red or white wine.
