A new happening at the beloved Mozza: Mangiare in Famiglia. This is a family-style dining event, every Friday in the classroom next to Mozza2Go.

It’s genuinely family-style. There’s one table that seats about 20. “Since it’s one table, it all becomes one party. Nancy [Silverton] and Matt Molina are there during the entire dinner. Hosting, cooking, explaining … It truly is as if you’ve come into her home for dinner. To the point of even keeping the same dinner plate during all the courses,” explains Jennalynn.

The menu varies from night to night. On one night, Jennalyn experienced perfectly crusty, chewy focaccia; seasonal vegetables with garlicky anchovy bagna cauda for dipping; and deliciously rich bone marrow on buttered toast. And then thin-sliced short ribs with salsa verde. “There was a slight sweetness to the marinade and the herby salsa verde worked just perfectly with the grilled meat,” describes Jennalyn. And then: slow-roasted, perfect oxtails. And then: crusty beef with Swiss chard and roasted onions.

For $75, you get three hours’ worth of stunning food. It’s actually an incredible bargain, says Jennalyn.
