The Wrigley Field Chef Series goes Italian

A review of Tony Mantuano’s menu for this homestand.

The Chef Series continues at Wrigley Field during this homestand with Italian inspired ballpark fare from Tony Mantuano of Spiaggia. If you’re not familiar with Spiaggia, it’s one of the best Italian restaurants in Chicago and has a knack for turning out Top Chef Talent, including Season 15 winner Joe Flamm and Season 9 runner-up Sarah Grueneberg. Italian food wasn’t featured in last year’s Chef Series so I was particularly curious to see what Chef Mantuano had cooked up.

The menu features four items all of which manage to provide high-end Italian flavors in a ballpark friendly way. You can see all of the offerings and prices via Chicago Eater. Here are the Grilled Mortadella Steak and Luganega Sausage mentioned in the Eater article:
