A Florentine family lunch at the Getty on Sunday


The Getty Center is hosting a four-course luncheon fashioned after the traditional Italian family meal style of dining on Sunday.

Diners will feast on platters of Italian-inspired dishes made with locally sourced foods while sipping on Prosecco and leisurely listening to the sounds of Trecento music from Renaissance Florence. Sunday’s menu features antipasti with cheese and cured meats accompanied by house-baked breads, lamb and pork sausage meatballs, braised short rib tagliata and, for dessert, a traditional Tuscan torta della Nonna made with vanilla and lemon zest.

The lunch will finish with a tour of the “Florence at the Dawn of the Renaissance” exhibition, which runs through February 2013. Reservations for the luncheon are $65 per person and can be made by calling (310) 440-6212.
