It was reported back in July that Dean Zanella was parting ways with the now-defunct Rhapsody after the chef of nearly two years learned he would not be attached to the reconceptualized Italian resatuarant Tesori. Since that time, Zanella has been doing some private catering but on Nov. 1 through 3, he'll be taking break to host a pop-up dinner at Sunny Side Up. Zanella spent some time earlier this year in Italy doing research and those influences will be felt in the menu. The Italian family style dinner will include four courses to be shared and is BYOB.
The cost is $65 and is inclusive of tax and tip. Reservations between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. can be made by calling or texting 708-268-0711 or 312-593-0769. More information will be made available on Sunny Side Up's Facebook page.
