Combining great food with a great cause, Ristorante FIRENZE will open its doors at 2 Hanover Rd. in Reisterstown’s historic Main Street corridor for a pre-grand opening fundraiser to benefit local firefighters.
Taking place Wednesday, Feb. 11, from 4 to 11 p.m., this special event offers the community a chance to preview FIRENZE’s upscale causal, Tuscan dining experience, which includes homemade pasta, meatballs, lasagna, breads, pizzas, sauces, salad dressings and desserts – prepared with the freshest, authentic Italian ingredients available. Beverage options include handmade cocktails, craft beer and over 100 premium wines from California and Italy.
Guests can order off of FIRENZE’s full menu and designate the restaurant to donate a portion of their check to either the Reisterstown, Owings Mills or Glyndon Volunteer Fire Department.
“These firefighters are our neighbors who courageously and selflessly donate their time to protect us, and it is our privilege to give something back to them – even before we officially open for business,” said FIRENZE owners, Brian and Larry Leonardi, who will tally the evening’s proceeds and present checks to the three fire departments at the restaurant’s Feb. 12 grand opening ceremony.
