Dinner for Two at Feroce in New York with Francesco Panella
Enjoy a dinner for two at Feroce Ristorante in New York. You and a friend will be welcomed by Italian restaurant owner Francesco Panella who'll show you around the restaurant and tell you about the concepts behind it. You'll see Panella again after dinner for a drink in the Ball Room.
International restaurateur and entrepreneur, Francesco Panella has always been inspired by the history and tradition which he pays tribute to through his dishes. Born and raised in Rome, Panella has always been in the restaurant business with the family-run restaurant Antica Pesa, which has been in the family since 1922.
Francesco transformed this unique place into an internationally recognized brand and has gone on to receive acclaim for a restaurant that he opened in Brooklyn in 2012, which will be followed by a new restaurant in Shanghai in 2019.
Feroce Ristorante is a lively but cozy place that combines Italian tradition with contemporary elegance. The restaurant takes inspiration from Francesco Panella's new concepts, following on from the success of Antica Pesa, the legendary restaurant based in Rome, Italy.
Feroce combines the best of both worlds, importing selected ingredients from historical brands and small producers from all over Italy, and sourcing fresh products from the best local suppliers in New York. The recipes are presented in a simple way, enhancing the flavors of each ingredient to showcase the area, soil, air and water that go into producing it.
The Children for Peace was founded 14 years ago by Debra Mace and Massimo Leonardelli.
The charity was set up with the aim of helping families in need, especially in Palestine and Syria. In recent years the charity has been transformed and today is present in Ethiopia, Colombia, Syria and Uganda.
In fact, it is in Gulu, Uganda, that the collaboration with the Combinian Sisters began. Through their work and with our support the charity helps orphans, poverty-stricken families and people with illness.
We work to give financial support to eductational projects, schools, doctor's surgeries, food and all other expenses that families face on a daily basis.
The Children for Peace is currently aiming to finish works on a new surgery and cover the cost of the children's schooling.
