The Brains Behind Robert’s Pizza & Dough Co.
Robert Garvey, the visionary behind Robert’s Pizza & Dough Co., states, “We’re thrilled to welcome the community to these exceptional dinners. Crafting an intimate dining experience has been a goal of ours, and this is the perfect way to embark on that journey. It’s also a chance for our culinary team, led by [Chef] Nelli, to showcase their creative prowess, which has been an enriching experience for all of us.”
The inaugural event for August holds a special partnership with Heaven’s Door Distillery. Pairing an innovative twist on a classic cocktail, the culinary team has carefully aged each concoction in the barrels of Robert’s Pizza since early spring. The adventure commences with an Amuse Bouche, accompanied by a glass of prosecco. This certainly paves the way for a meticulously curated menu by Robert Garvey and Chef Nelli Maltezos.
The Divine Lineup
- 1st Course: Indulge in a flavorful Meatball & Arancini swimming in Arrabbiata Sauce. The Chicago Sour, a fusion of Heaven’s Door Double Barrel Whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg whites, and dry red wine, will beautifully complement this course.
- 2nd Course: Delight in the intricate Fennel Vichyssoise crowned with Five-Spice Toasted Pine Nuts. It is accompanied by The Fennel & Fig: an exquisite blend of Heaven’s Door Straight Bourbon, Heaven’s Door Fig & Fennel Bitters, orange twist essence, and a charred fennel sprig.
- 3rd Course: Embark on a journey of flavors with the Heirloom Tomato Pizza. Adorned with Italian Buffalo Mozzarella, house-made red sauce, and fresh basil, this course stands out with its rich flavors.
