If you are sitting at your desk at work bemoaning the end of the vacation you took last week during the holiday weekend, dreaming of sipping delicious wine with incredible cuisine in your extensive fantasy travel, John Varanese has a reprieve for your pain. This coming Tuesday, July 16th, the popular Louisville restaurant Varanese will host Around the World in Six Courses, a six course meal featuring dishes from Greece, Italy, Chile, Argentina, and more. If you aren't familiar with Varanese, my condolences. You've missed out on a local gem, but it's not too late to enjoy top notch cuisine prepared with local and organic ingredients by one of Louisville's coveted chefs. To top it off, you will enjoy wine pairings with wines from Terlato Wines International, the wine marketer with the most 90+ wine ratings in the world.

Are you starting to perk up? Then call Varanese Restaurant right now and book your seat for a mere $65.00. Don't worry, all seats are first class.

Reservations for this rare culinary adventure are of course, required. They can easily be made by calling 502-899-9904 or emailing [email protected] Space is limited so don't delay. Reception begins at 6:30 pm, dinner is at 7pm.
