Porchetta and Prosecco for Ferragosto at Cecconi’s

Pig Roast at Cecconi’s

Apparently, the Italians celebrate a holiday of leisure called Ferragosto on the 15th of August – a day to head to the beach, mountains and other glorious vacation destinations for some serious off time. Cecconi’s is making this occasion easy for us Angelenos to celebrate – thanks to a pig roast on August 18th.

They’re roasting porchetta, in fact, over the spit and serving it up on a plate with delicious accompaniments like plated apple sauce, wood oven roasted potatoes and pork crackling. Also included is a glass of Prosecco, which Cecconi’s just made available on-tap, with the very reasonable per person price of $30.

I love Cecconi’s patio if nothing more than for soaking up some West Hollywood sun, the beautiful bar which opens to the outdoor seating as well as the beautiful people-watching. It’s quite a scene, so I can only imagine how festive the addition of porchetta will make it. Also, I’d like to reiterate two words: Pork crackling.

It’s probably a good idea to make your reservation, now, so you can secure your spots.

I’ll see you with your glass of Prosecco on the patio.
