Italian Family Style and Helping Hungry Families

How about some yummy Italian tonight? Or, "A Tasteful Pursuit"
with Stephan Pyles to help Share Our Strength?

Congratulations to Morris and Mike Salerno, and the entire Salerno Family, for 25 years of great Italian dining at Salerno's in Flower Mound. Sublime and tasty Italian food that makes it worthwhile to drive to the 'burbs if you live downtown or even half-way across the Metroplex. Heck, if you lived here you'd be home by now, so take any freeway to any freeway and follow the signs to Salerno's. Check out these daily specials:

Mondays - All You Can Eat Lasagna, Salad and Bread $7.00/person
Tuesdays - Buy one entree (valued at $8.50 or more) and receive the second entree for 50% off
Wednesdays - Half Price House wine by the glass
Thursdays - Ladies Night! Half price margaritas, Martinis and House Wines
Saturdays - Free Tiramisu with the purchase of (2) entrees - totaling $25 or more
Sundays - Half price appetizers

Salerno's Italian Restaurant is located at 3407 Long Prairie Road, in beautiful downtown Flower Mound 75028, 972-539-9534.

Stephan Pyles again hosts a unique dinner event to raise funds to support Share Our Strength's efforts to end childhood hunger in the United States. The fabulous dinner "A Tasteful Pursuit" takes place at Stephan's eponymous restaurant in Dallas at 1807 Ross Avenue on Sunday August 30. Participating chefs include:

David Uygur, Lola;
Sara Johannes, Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck;
Dan Yamauchi, Motor City Casino Hotel, Detroit
Bradford Thompson, James Beard Award winning chef/Food & Wine Top Ten Best New Chefs
Arturo Romanillos, Pastry Chef, Stephan Pyles

There are silent and live auctions to help raise additional funds. We bid on a cool item last year that Gary Cogill put together with tons of DVD's and a real Indianna Jones Fedora. Very slick. My wife thought the wine items were more to here liking. Tickets are $175 per person or you can host a table for $5000. Call 888.273.6141 for reservations. Or make reservations online:
