Southern taverns and Italian osterias may occupy different continents, but they share the same philosophy: simple but satisfying food, and plenty of highly quaffable beverages to go along with it. Join us when chef Woolery “Woody” Back, who cut his teeth under JBF Award winners Tom Colicchio and Linton Hopkins, unites the two concepts at his Beard House debut.
