Thomas Giudice and Lisa Tassone
La Zingara, Bethel, CT

La Zingara is the type of romantic neighborhood restaurant that draws food lovers—and celebrity couples—from well outside its charming New England neighborhood. For this Beard House dinner married owners Lisa Tassone and Thomas Giudice, who met on the job, will showcase their irresistible regional Italian food, much of it sourced from their 126-acre organic farm.
