GREENWICH, Conn. -- Terra Ristorante, the renowned Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Greenwich, celebrates its 25th year in business with a cocktail party to commemorate its Silver Anniversary on Thursday, Oct. 6.
In honor of this milestone, the restaurant will host a cocktail party from 5-7 p.m., offering complimentary hors d oeuvres and cocktails as well as a special appearance by breast cancer survivor, Geralyn Lucas, who will be conducting a book signing of her latest book “Then Came Life.”
To continue the celebration, a special four-course anniversary dinner with wine pairings will be offered immediately after the cocktail party at $150 per person to all guests. Terra will donate 100 percent of the net proceeds to the Breast Cancer Alliance. Limited seating is available and reservations are required.
Terra Ristorante quietly opened in October of 1991 by Z Hospitality Founder and Owner, Ramze Zakka, who dreamed of creating a restaurant offering simple yet delicious food in a warm and inviting ambiance. He wanted to offer an alternative to the already existing white glove and fast casual restaurants that were in town.
The goal was to create a bistro and introduce authentic Northern Italian food to Greenwich. He wanted guests to feel that they were being transported to Florence for an authentic dining experience. Everything from food and beverages to Italian servers and music was carefully curated to achieve this goal.
Terra Ristorante’s success exceeded all expectations. The restaurant was quickly discovered and populated by guests who became regulars, dining on exquisite and authentic Italian fare a few times a week for lunch and dinner. Under the culinary leadership of Chef and Co-Owner, Albert DeAngelis, he and his staff showcase a constantly evolving and dynamic menu to offer guests a memorable dining experience.
Ramze Zakka is grateful for the longevity of his restaurant. “We’ve been so incredibly fortunate. It truly has been a privilege to have enjoyed the support of our community and our long standing guests,” Zakka said. “Celebrating 25 years is something we are very proud to have accomplished. However, supporting our local community and charitable events to help others achieve personal success is even more meaningful to us.”
Terra Ristorante is part of the Z Hospitality Group, which also owns restaurants in Norwalk, New Canaan and Rye, N.Y. Click here to visit its website and information on its other restaurants.
