It’s one of a couple events going down around the area to boost Vacaville’s favorite chicken farm — an ongoing auction culminates in tickets to a at Pizzaiolo the same day as Il Cane Rosso’s — but we’d like to focus on the Il Cane Rosso event because it departs from that restaurant’s weekday modus operandus and might might provide a little glimpse into what can be expected at the upcoming Bracina. They’re doing two seatings for a three-course meal with the kind of rustic food we’ve been given to understand will be on the menu in Jack London Square come December. early 2010. Tickets are $50, including wine, and can be gotten by calling the restaurant. Check out an early version of the menu below.
