The Best Balls
Stealing a phrase that first appeared in this paper, Lugano’s chef/owner Greg Neville has brought back Meatball Mondays at
Lugano, featuring a selection of “Greg’s best balls.” Included in
Lugano’s balls selection are arancini (rice balls), calamari and
cannellini bean balls, and mini meatballs. In addition, Lugano’s 10-year
anniversary cooking-class series continues Saturday, April 17, and the
month of May features “Lugano in Maggio,” highlighting spring cooking
from Piemonte and the Lake Country surrounding Lake Lugano, Switzerland.
Dinners will be paired with weekly wine flights and signature Lugano
cocktails. For additional information, visit LuganoRestaurant.com.
