Petrini’s Restaurant Challenge Finalists

The finalists for Petrini’s Restaurant Challenge have been selected and the dishes are being prepared at 6:00pm this Wednesday, March 2, at Petrini’s new site at 5711 Calle Real.

The restaurant patrons and four judges will equally have a vote. Although Joe Bohnett, Petrini’s legendary owner, was going to select the best four, he had to stretch it to five (they were too good).

Listed below are the final recipes:

  1. Pizza with lemon slices, red onion and rosemary – they call it the “Shim” pizza.
  2. Pizza with baby clams and garlic.
  3. Pasta with an interesting walnut sauce.
  4. Grandma’s tomato, bacon, potato & pesto sauce
  5. Sliced beef with garlic and mushroom sauce.
