Chef Matt’s gnocchi and Novelty Hill’s Sangiovese were the stars of the dinner.

Good news, Matt has finely agreed to make his “no egg” gnocchi for the restaurant…. But only once a month and then if it turns out. His “no egg” gnocchi is a labor of love. Thanks Matt!

Bad news, Novelty Hill’s Sangiovese is sold out at the winery….
