BANKERS HILL— Cucina Urbana executive chef Joe Magnanelli is launching a new dinner series that will celebrate whole animal cookery. Beast Feast is a quarterly event that debuts on July 19 with whole-roasted Texas redfish in limoncello beurre blanc with saffron fregola and summer squash, a crab-stuffed leafy endive, pine nut and date roasted cauliflower, and a radicchio salad followed by a peach and almond crostata with buttermilk gelato and chamomile honey. Each two-course, family-style seasonally-sourced meals is $70 per person, or $240 for the entire series; future dinners will feature duck, beef and pork, with optional beverage pairings. [EaterWire]
