December 7: For this special evening to benefit Safe Harbour, we will feature the cuisine of Rome. Despite the city’s imperial pedigree, Roman cuisine is the food of the people; flavored by lard and olive oil, perfumed by sage, rosemary, cinnamon, marjoram, and mint. These classic dishes of Rome have become “Americanized” over the years, but for this special evening, we want you to experience the way these dishes have been made for centuries in the eternal city. Although simple in ingredients, they are full of flavor and beautifully presented. Our Sommelier P. J. Myers has paired each delicious course with a fantastic wine from throughout Italy. A portion of the proceeds from the dinner will be presented to Safe Harbour. 6:30 p.m., $85 (plus tax and gratuity). Orleans Plaza, 37 New Orleans Rd. (843) 785-6272 or michael-anthonys.com.
