Corinthian Events - Boston Event Planning News

We have good news to share – we’ve welcomed a new member to our team this month: Elizabeth Iannessa!

Elizabeth Iannessa joins Corinthian Events

Elizabeth is thrilled to have rejoined the Corinthian Events team!  During her two year hiatus she gained a wealth of knowledge in food and beverage management spending a year studying and staging in Rome, Italy then returning to her hometown of Boston to assist in the opening of a local celebrity chef’s Back Bay restaurant. She returns to her passion of planning, designing, creating, and working under pressure with a smile to ensure that your next event exceeds your expectation.  Elizabeth enjoys traveling, eating, and practicing yoga.


Delight in the Ultimate Prix Fixe Menus: Restaurant Week

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Ideas and Suggestions by the Corinthian Events Team

Restaurant Week starts next week (August 14th – 19th and 21st – 26th) and we’re breaking out menus and making reservations.

The only time to explore Boston’s best restaurants at a prix fixe cost – it’s one of our favorite bi-annual occurrences!   This summer, we’re celebrating by sharing our favorites with you:

  • Courtney hands down picks Mistral, she loves their tuna tartar! Nom nom nom.
  • Page is obsessed with the mac ‘n cheese and steak tips at Silvertone (albeit biased since when she’s not working here, she’s working there)!
  • Battling it out in the mac ‘n cheese department, Amy picks South End’s Coda.  Perhaps a taste test is in order?
  • Fleming’s on Stuart Street is Rich’s pick.  Filet mignon with baked potato & grilled asparagus – need we say more?
  • Have you tried the beef carpaccio at Lucca?  It’s Vic’s favorite!
  • Sonya’s loves Mamma Maria’s lobster pasta – can you blame her!?
  • Because you can never get enough Italian, Jill picks Monica’s in the North End.  Her favorite dish?  The chicken liver gnocchi.
  • Tamara can’t stay away from Met Bar’s Blueberries for Sal, her favorite liquid concoction (we’d never exclude a cocktail shout-out!) comprised of Shock Top beer, blueberry vodka and fresh lemon!
  • For the best in veggie tasting menus – Laura raves about Ten Tables in Jamaica Plain and aspires to become a regular in the fall!
  • Restaurant “newbie,” Red Lantern, gets Mary’s vote.  Make sure you try the amazing appetizers – mmm… duck buns & pan fried pork gyoza.

What Boston restaurant’s are you trying this month?  What’s your all-time favorite?
