Osteria Rossa hosted an intimate gathering for A.K. Rikk’s, the visiting team from Isaia and Eidos, and close friends and patrons. I was privileged to take my seat among a great group of professionals from various industries, united by our mutual appreciation for fine tailoring and the atmosphere fostered by the folks at A.K. Rikk’s. The dining experience was superb as we shared stories and laughs across family style portions, including their signature octopus served with lemon conserva, pickled fennel, arugula, local white beans, and Calabrian Chili oil. Truly authentic cuisine was on display not only in the Italian inspiration, an artful culinary rendition of Naples, but also a commitment to the Grand Rapids community (ingredients that weren’t imported from Italy were all locally harvested). Here is a glimpse our night out as A&H visited A.K. Rikk’s to cover a joint trunk show with Isaia president Jim Shay and the team from Eidos Napoli. It was indeed una notte da ricordare.
