“Bite your teeth into the ass of life and drag it to you!” – Ian Holm as Pascal, Big Night, 1996. One of the most adored movies amongst restaurant industry veterans is BigNight. The movie expresses both the passion and frustration experienced by many restaurateurs, while clearly demonstrating the level of dedication necessary to succeed in the restaurant business.

“Big Night is one of the best restaurant movies ever made,” says Ted Anderson, Executive Chef, Campagnolo Restaurants. “It captures a chef’s internal struggle to cook food that appeals to them, while desperately striving to please their guests.”

Chef Ted Anderson has planned a family style banquet designed toengage, inspire and create a deeper connection between the guest and the chef. The menu pays homage to an array of dishes featured during the memorable feast in Big NightJaw dropping dishes include risotto tricolore, whole game hens, steelhead trout and suckling pig, and the extremely complicated baked pasta dish, timpano.

Campagnolo’s Big Night is priced at $75 per person and will take place in the upstairs private dining room on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 7pm.
