Feast of St. Joseph at Tappo Restaurant

All total, there are not that many places in Buffalo that put out a St. Joseph’s Day spread. OK, maybe some households, but when it comes to restaurants there are only a handful that come to mind. Not being a Roman Catholic, or even religious for that matter, I’m probably not the best person to ask about this day, but seeing that at least one restaurant in Downtown Buffalo is preparing a feast for this special occasion, I figured that I would make an honorable mention.

Developer Rocco Termini told me earlier today that Tappo has already booked 300 reservations for the day. There will be multiple seatings in order to accommodate everyone. Guests must call ahead and reserve a table and a time slot.

Tappo’s Feast of St. Joseph takes place this coming Wednesday, March 19, 2014 (seatings at noon, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm). St. Joseph was the spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Patron of the Universal Church, and this special feast is in his honor. Be sure to wear some red, and for only $20 per person, you can join together with friends and family to enjoy the following spread:

Red wine | Celery, fennel, olive, orange | St. Joseph’s Bread | Lentil with ditalini | pasta con sarde | Baccala with onion and black olives | calamari salad | dandelion greens | marinated eggplant | roasted red pepper salad | smelt | assorted froggia – asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, carduni) | sfinge, cannoli, pignolatti

There are still reservations available
