Dinner in Venice | Chef's Table

  • 42 Naugatuck Avenue Milford, CT, 06460 United States (map)

⟵ Back to Classes

Our first Chef's table dinner theme will be Dinner in Venice. Drawing on the rich Venetian tradition of Cicchetti (Venetian Tapas), we have crafted a sumptuous, indulgent, one-of-a-kind menu that floats like the Canal Grande through the many vibrant flavors of this spectacular and storied Italian culinary tradition. 

Cicchetti Venetian Small Plates
Beef Tenderloin Carpaccio
Bigoli ai Funghi Porcini Venetian Bigoli Pasta with Porcini Mushrooms
Arugula Salad with Shaved Asiago, Pinot Grigio Dressing

This event will be BYOB
Vegetarian version available – please indicate at signup if you would prefer this option.


Chef’s Tables are fixed-price themed dinners with a demonstration component, not hands-on classes. If you’d like to take one of our hands-on classes, the full lineup can be found here.

Signing Up
The sign-up link above will direct you to the sign up page for this dinner, which will allow you to sign up through our booking system. If you have a gift certificate, there will be a place to enter your certificate information on that page. Your registration is official once you have received a confirmation email from our system (be sure to check your spam folder if you don’t see it). If you have purchased a ticket for a Chef’s Table Dinner and have not received a confirmation email, please email so we can help you out. Please also feel free to email us if you have any questions about the booking process.

Location & Parking
All of our classes are taught at our kitchen at 42 Naugatuck Ave, Milford. You can park across the street or on any of the surrounding streets. Please do not park in the 15 minute zone directly in front of our building.

Fig classes, chef’s table dinners, and gift certificates are non-refundable. Please think of this as buying a ticket for a show; we turn away many customers from sold out events. Tickets are transferable, so you are welcome to send a friend in your place.

A Fig experience is a perfect gift for a friend, loved one, or business associate. However we strongly recommend buying gift certificates rather than signing up somebody for a class or dinner as a surprise, since this often results in schedule conflicts. Per our cancellation policy above, classes and dinners are non-refundable for any reason, and giving a gift certificate allows the recipient to choose a date that works for them, and avoid disappointment.

Dietary Restrictions
Please let us know before you sign up if you have any dietary restrictions. Since our menu is fixed, we cannot make any substitutions. We do offer a vegetarian version of each chef’s table menu, which you can select at signup. If you did not select the vegetarian option at signup, and wish to change, you MUST notify us no less than 48 hours in advance. No substitutions can be made on the day. We cannot offer reimbursement for undisclosed dietary restrictions. Please note that our kitchen is full of dairy, gluten, and nuts, and that we cannot accept responsibility for these or any other food allergies. Our kitchen is not Kosher.

Your ticket includes one signature cocktail or alcohol-free mocktail, listed on the menu above, upon arrival. You may enter your choice of cocktail or mockail at signup. No substitutions can be made for this drink. Guests under 21 must have the mocktail. We have a curated wine, beer, and cocktail menu tailored to the evening's offerings should you wish to order additional beverages. There is no BYOB.

Arrival & Departure
The evening will begin at 7:00 and our doors open at 6:45. If you’re running late for any reason, please give us a call to let us know you are on your way. The demonstration and dinner usually wrap up between 8:30 and 9, but you are welcome to stay with us until our doors close at 11. We offer our full cocktail menu, after dinner drinks, small plates and snacks à la carte until close.

Please don't hesitate to email if you have any questions or challenges with your registration! We look forward to seeing you in class!
