Get Sauced: St. Vincent Launches Jersey Shore-inspired Pop-Up Dinners

Despite the Irish-sounding surname and the distinctly American menu, the hip wine-centric Valencia St venue St. Vincent Tavern just announced it will start offering an unabashedly old-school Italian-American pop-up dinner series. Both owner David Lynch and chef Bill Niles know a thing or two about long-simmered Sunday sauces and glasses of big beefy reds. The former was raised on his grandmother’s meat sauces and the latter (Niles, a Philly native) first cut his teeth cooking professionally on the Jersey Shore Boardwalk.

Dubbed "Sunday Sauce", the three-course family style Italian-American feasts will be paired with wines and offered at the retro-price of $45 a head, before tax and gratuity (Sinatra music thrown in gratis.) The inaugural supper, which will be held on October 21 beginning at 5 PM, will feature the Piedmontese wines of Oddero, one of the stalwarts of Piedmont’s Barolo wine zone, and Gillardi, which is considered one of the leading producers of Dolcetto. Check out the menu after the jump.

Pimento Peppers and Provolone * Marinated Mushrooms * Pickled Broccoli Rabe

Baked Macaroni with House Ricotta and Smoked Tomato

Bavette Steak Braciole with Roasted Seasonal Vegetables

Cannoli alla Siciliana and Assorted Gelati
