Chef Fabio Viviani to host dinner service at his del Lago Resort & Casino restaurant

This weekend, guests can enjoy an opportunity to interact with celebrity chef Fabio Viviani while dining at his restaurant, Portico by Fabio Viviani, inside del Lago Resort & Casino.

Following a sold-out cooking class, Viviani will bring greeting tables from 5PM to 10PM, Saturday, December 15th, during dinner service at Portico. The Portico menu will feature its regular dishes in addition to some shared at Viviani’s cooking demonstration held Saturday afternoon. While reservations are not required, they are encouraged by calling 315-946-1780 or visiting here.

With an intense passion for food and farm-fresh ingredients, Viviani brings that same essence and spirit to Portico by Fabio Viviani. The del Lago Resort & Casino restaurant features a sophisticated take on Old World Italian-inspired foods and handmade pastas, as well as seafood, steaks and chops grilled over hardwood. Portico by Fabio Viviani is the recipient of an OpenTable Diners’ Choice Award for its outstanding service and quality of food.

Perhaps best known for his television debut on Bravo’s hit reality series “Top Chef” and earning the “fan favorite” title, Viviani’s on-screen appearances have propelled him to become one of the fastest-growing culinary names in the country. The successful restaurateur is the owner of several well-known restaurants across the country in Los Angeles, Tampa and Chicago, to name a few. Portico is Viviani’s only restaurant in New York.
