Spartico Amarcord Supper Club and Rooftop Party at the Mayfair Hotel and Spa

It's Thursday night and you're not sure what to do? Well, here's something that can take care of three basic urges: hunger, thirst and the need for eye candy (there I said it). Italian-style Trattoria Spartico at the Mayfair Hotel & Spa located at 3000 Florida Avenue in Coconut Grove, is holding an Amarcord Supper Club every Thursday night featuring singer Louis Amanti. Imagine having delicious pasta and Belinni's at an excellent price, taking in the beautiful setting of the Mayfair, while enjoying favorites from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tony Bennett.

This is what the Amarcord dinner series is all about. Amarcord, which means "I remember" in the dialect of Rimini, takes you back to a romantic, sophisticated time through the vocals of Amanti, who brings the whole experience alive. Singing classic and modern jazz, along with Spanish favorites, he truly captures the essence of a less complicated time. 

Antipasto Spartico
Add to this experience the enticing menu options from Spartico, such as the Antipasto Spartico, featuring Grana Parmigiano and Pecorino Sardo Cheese, olives, prosciutto di parma, local fresh mozzarella, sopressata, zucchini fritti, fire roasted peppers and artichokes, and you're in for a treat.

Gnocchi with Wild Mushrooms
Lobster Ravioli
For the supper club, a selection of pastas are available at a special price. We tried the Gnocchi with Wild Mushrooms and the Lobster Ravioli.  They were excellent. The Gnocchi with Wild Mushrooms consisted of a generous-sized portion of gnocchi mixed with roasted garlic, sauteed porcini, portobello and button mushrooms. It was bathed in a light cream sauce and drizzled with truffle oil. The Lobster Ravioli, although smaller in portion, was a tasty combination of rosemary, sage, fresh diced roma tomatoes, garlic and evoo.

Once you're done with dinner and basking in the musical talent of Amanti, you can go up to the rooftop to indulge in some spirits, and dance the night away to the tunes of DJ TINELLO.  For more information, visit them online at
