It’s been five years since Parkside Projects opened the Southern Italian restaurant, Olive & June, and they are ready to celebrate by stuffing our faces! For the entire month of February, diners can experience a very special tasting menu (along with some other nice surprises) that reveals a bit of the history of what has now become an Austin staple.

The rotating pasta menu by Executive Chef Brian Moses will highlight a variety of pastas that have been served at the restaurant since it opened in February 2012. The restaurant has focused on making every pasta, as many as 12 different kinds, in-house on a daily basis.

The tasting menu includes:

5-Course Pasta Tasting Menu

  • Butternut raviolo, brown butter, sage, golden raisin mostarda
  • Risotto – shallot, garlic, walnut pesto, parm, celery
  • Gnocchi, smoked rainbow trout, broccoli, pear, radish
  • Pappardelle, short rib, sun choke, apple, smoked caciovello
  • Gemelli, fennel sausage, arugula, fennel

3-Course Pasta Tasting Menu

  • Butternut raviolo, brown butter, sage, golden raisin mostarda
  • Risotto – shallot, garlic, walnut pesto, parm, celery
  • Gemelli, fennel sausage, arugula, fennel

Guests who order from the special pasta tasting menu will also receive a complimentary bag of house-made pasta to take home. But wait, there’s more — even if you don’t order off of the tasting menu, Olive & June will be providing a complimentary glass of Prosecco to each restaurant guest (21+, of course), the entire month.
After February 15 these menus will change in order to include other pasta dishes that have been served since the restaurant’s opening (and to give you an opportunity to go a whole other round of stuffing your face with pasta). The 3-course menu costs $35.50 per person and the 5-course menu costs $49 per person with a two person minimum per table. Reservations can be made through the Olive & June website or by calling 512.467.9898.
