It’s about that time of the year: ~POGGIO~ just re-launched their bollito misto yesterday. Chef Peter McNee will be preparing five different meats: housemade cotechino sausage, beef tongue, veal breast, oxtail, and brisket, all sliced and served tableside from their special Italian bollito cart that they imported from Italy. They’re also making five different sauces to go with the meats. In the past, it was only for a week, but now the bollito will be served every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evening until spring. The price is $19.

Up in Pt. Reyes Station, ~OSTERIA STELLINA~ is now offering a Tuesday night special: lasagna bolognese, a salad, and a glass of house wine (from Dry Creek) for $20, along with live music, courtesy of This Old Earthquake band (they will perform each week from 6:30pm-8:30pm).
