Lolla Inspired Menu At The Florentine

Thursday, July 30, 2015 Perry


Music,cocktails and food; A perfect combination for a great weekend!  In celebration of Lollapalooza 2015, The Florentine, a restaurant specializing in Italian cuisine, has launched a Lolla themed menu of craft cocktails, entrées, and deserts.



With punny names inspired by the festival's headliners, like "Shuck and Destroy" and  "Live and Let Lime", each creation was carefully planned out by Chef Zachery Walrath and Sommelier and Beverage Director, Benjamin Meyer.

Located in the downtown JW Marriott Chicago, The Florentine is conveniently close to Grant Park where the Lolla festivities will take place, yet just off the main path enough for a nice break from the crowds, noise and heat!

Take some much needed time to relax and recharge this weekend and check out all of the amazing, and oh, so tasty food and beverage specials that The Florentine has to offer!  My personal favorite; "I'm Nut The Only One", inspired by Sam Smith's hit single and his love for pistachio gelato, is a must try!
