Full Eat & Drink ArtPrize 2010 coverage.

Based off my visit on opening day of ArtPrize, this should be a must on your list of places to eat and drink during ArtPrize. It was lunchtime and while the streets were bustling with people, I was the only soul in this space.

Tre Cugini is known for its delicious, authentic Italian cuisine and the dining experience at its La Scala Caffe promises the same. For ArtPrize, La Scala is offering a special menu which lends itself to a more in-and-out dining experience rather than the sit down affair you would expect from Tre Cugini. They will be offering three specialty pizzas, sandwiches, soups, salads and a variety of seasonal desserts. Beer and wine are also available.

Access this space from 125 Ottawa Avenue, an entrance to the Ledyard Building. La Scala is located down the staircase in the center of the building.

The Art you'll See

La Scala will host eight artists from Europe and USA. An Italian artist from Perugia, Umbria will be featuring his award winning paintings. Artists inlude Maria D’Angelo, Magdelena Kwapisz Grabowska, Mary Drouse, Luigi Marzo, Paige Pederson, Bianca Lindbald, Christine Scott and Jessica Richard.
