NC Apples Create a Locally Grown Farm Fresh Menu in Midtown Raleigh

Monday, October 13th, 2014

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-apple-harvest-image21611353October is National Apple Month across the U.S.A. and autumn is always a fun time for cider mills, N.C. apple picking, apple tours, corn mazes and hayrides down the orchard farm trails. At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we offer a variety of delectable dishes that include our North Carolina apple or feature its apple flavors. Whether dining with us for brunch, lunch, dinner, or even Halloween weekend; we are the finest Northern Italian restaurant in the Triangle. Mia Francesca is centrally located at North Hills in Midtown Raleigh alongside the Renaissance Raleigh North Hills by Marriott and we are near boutiques, movie theaters, quaint shops and an array of local retail environments to walk to and enjoy.

From our weekend brunch menu, we offer Breakfast Americana: two eggs (any style), applewood smoked bacon, Italian sausage, house-fried potatoes, ciabatta toast, and fresh fruit. Our brunch menu is always available from 10 a.mm until 3 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday.

When visiting for lunch while shopping or during your work day, stop in and enjoy our seasonal Autumn Salad with fresh sliced apples, pears, gorgonzola, candied walnuts and mixed greens; everything is flavored with our delicious apple cider vinaigrette. Keeping with the October apple theme during dinner, try our absolutely incredible Costoletta di Maiale, which features a cider glazed pork chop, sweet potato puree, Brussels sprouts, pancetta, and caramelized onions with fresh apple juices.

Now, what dessert does Mia Francesca Trattoria recommend tasting during National Apple Month? None other than our Apple Crostata with locally grown Granny Smith apples buried in a flaky pastry crust that is always served warm with tasty vanilla gelato, caramel, and vanilla crème anglaise.

Remember to find the opportunity to delight in our fine wine selection. In honor of National Apple Month, feel free to select one of our superb red or white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of our red wines and Chardonnay is the most popular of our white wines.

Lastly, it is soon the time for the holiday season and the holidays are about spending time with loved ones. Let our Iron Chef Zack and his team of kitchen professionals does all the work. When you celebrate Thanksgiving Day with us (from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday November 27th), have a slice of our savory Apple Pie.

Any time is the right time to dine at Mia Francesca Trattoria!

Raleigh Restaurants That Offer Gluten-Free Menu? Mia Francesca Trattoria Does!

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Chef Zach and the staff at Mia Francesca Trattoria, located inside Raleigh’s North Hills Mall, understand how difficult it can be to dine out gluten-free in Raleigh; no matter the reason, we have the right gluten-free lunch and dinner menu in Raleigh for those who choose it. We are all about choices! We are proud our Raleigh Restaurant offers gluten free menus.

Living Gluten-free in Raleigh can offer some challenges and dining in an Italian restaurant can be one of them. Most bread, cereal, and pasta products contain gluten, which can make finding Italian meal options a challenge. But did you know that in Italy, Celiac Disease (Gluten Intolerance) is a recognized medical condition and our restaurant is well-prepared for this option?

Just as in the homeland, at Mia Francesca Trattoria, our patrons do not have to worry how ingredients might affect them as they enjoy a night out. We are proud to offer a special gluten-free menu featuring four pasta dishes (pastas made from quinoa) and a number of gluten-free desserts, all to be enjoyed and savored in our casually sophisticated dining atmosphere.

Try our Penne alle Verdure, a traditional Italian dish created using quinoa penne sautéed with wild mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, broccoli, escarole (a broad-leafed endive), garlic, olive oil, and pine nuts, a staple of Tuscan cuisine! If you’re not in the mood for pasta, we offer several of our main chicken, meat, and seafood entrees prepared gluten-free upon request. In addition, all of our dishes are carefully cooked and plated to avoid cross-contamination with meals that may contain gluten.

Mia Francesca’s gluten-free dessert menu is the best in the Triangle. We feature three irresistible options perfect for the hot summer months. Choose from creamy sorbet (Sorbetti del Giorno) or our thick, rich gelato (Gelati del Giorno), an Italian dessert that is very similar to ice cream, but with a greater and more pleasing density. A third option is our Crème Alla Vaniglia, a vanilla flavored crème brulée served with fresh seasonal berries.

This summer choose Mia Francesca as your go-to restaurant for the best in gluten-free Italian cuisine in the North Raleigh and Midtown area.

Make Mia Francesca a part of your weekend memories, your holiday gatherings, and your daily life. Show us off to your favorite out-of-town guests by letting them experience the best in Northern Italian cuisine right here in North Hills, the heart of Raleigh’s Midtown.

For our wedding rehearsal menu we feature our Tavoli di Amici (Table of Friends) traditional family-style menu option that brings everyone closer together over made-from-scratch fare with a variety of outstanding flavors.

We also offer a plated-style and more formal option that features a salad, entrée and dessert. Or perhaps you’d like to host a cocktail reception instead of a sit-down dinner. Then take a look at our Cocktail Reception package featuring selections of our house red and white wines accompanied by our antipasto favorites.

On both the family-style wedding rehearsal and plated-style menus enjoy our Pollo Limone, a sautéed chicken breast with lemon white wine sauce and capers. For pasta you will simply love our Pasta alle Vendure, made with wild mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, olive oil and pine nuts. And we haven’t mentioned dessert yet!
