On September 27, 6:30 p.m., Osteria Nino will host its first “Sunday Supper” event to benefit the National MS Society’s Greater New England Chapter (Waltham, MA) whose mission is to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. At this family-style dinner enveloped in warm Italian hospitality, Osteria Nino has enlisted help from their friends at The Farm School (Athol, MA), a nonprofit organization and working farm that trains and educates people about the farm industry. One of Osteria Nino’s favorite farms in New England, the Farm School specializes in certified organic vegetables, 100% grass-fed beef, pastured pork and more.
The Farm School will provide farm-fresh products and Osteria Nino’s executive chef, Walace Benica, will prepare a true farm-to-fork menu celebrating the best tastes of the local bounty, which will be paired with Italian wines and local beers. The four-course menu will be served family-style and presented as follows:
Farm School Lettuces
radishes, celery, shaved fennel
shell beans, breadcrumbs, aioli
Rigatoni Cacio e Pepe
black pepper, pecorino romano
tomato sauce, cured pork, pecorino romano
Misty Knoll Spit Roasted Chicken
spicy greens, polenta, last of summer eggplant caponata
Lemon & Raspberry Granitas
Shaw Farms cream

Osteria Nino opened in Burlington’s lively dining scene in April of 2015. Bringing a deep understanding and respect for the longstanding culinary traditions of Italy, Osteria Nino makes the most of the exquisite local bounty by marrying it with the tried and true techniques of “cucina italiana.” With its culinary program directed by celebrated industry veteran Chris Boswell and its kitchen helmed by the Italian-trained Walace Benica, guests come to share in expertly sourced, thoughtfully prepared, authentic Italian cuisine with beauty that shines through in perfectly executed simplicity. Its daily rotating menu brings forth clean, pure and delicious creations from its entirely scratch kitchen which also carries over into Osteria Nino’s seasonally influenced craft cocktail program. Osteria Nino boasts an all-Italian wine list, curated to offer the best sips from the different regions. The warm and inviting atmosphere encompasses a bar and lounge area, a dining room complete with a culinary bar and open kitchen, a private dining room and seasonal patio with a custom-designed pizza oven bedecked in mosaic tiles. Osteria Nino is located at 19 3rd Avenue in Burlington, MA. For more information, please call (781) 272-1600 or visit www.osterianino.com.
