The Sicilian Kitchen Lunch 

When Melissa Muller Daka opened Bar Eolo in 2010, it was a self-professed “love letter to Sicily”–and three years later, her ode to the Southern Italian region was such a success that she opened the artisanal pasta bar, Pastai. Join us at the Beard House for the chef's contemporary spin on rustic Sicilian cuisine, complete with wines straight from the island.
