Holiday and Everyday Specials at Il Forno Ristorante in Ballston (Promoted)

Il Forno Ristorante (900 N. Glebe Road) in Ballston has some great specials lined up for the holiday season.

To celebrate the Feast of the Seven Fishes, an Italian-American tradition, Il Forno will be serving fish specials Christmas week.

To make the last night of 2014 memorable, Il Forno has a special evening planned for New Year’s Eve. For $55, a three-course, prix fixe menu will be served from 5:00-7:30 p.m. and from 8:00-10:00 p.m. The latter seating will also have a five-course option for $75 — as well as a champagne toast.

(Prices do not include tax and gratuity.)

The restaurant’s non-seasonal specials are just as exquisite: weeknight happy hours from 4:30-7:00 p.m. offer cocktail specials developed exclusively for Il Forno by Francesco Amadeo. There’s also a rotating list of wine and beer specials, which fit well with its small plates menu.

The small plate specials include pork belly with caramelized green apple ($1) and Brussels sprouts with confit turnips, apple vinaigrette, fresh nutmeg and parmesan ($4), to name a few.

Executive Chef Jason Mayle, formerly the corporate executive chef with D.C.’s Stir Food Group, took over the kitchen earlier this year. Since then, Il Forno has seen dramatic changes — particularly with its new brunch menu.

Delivering “tantalizing, new twists on fresh, locally sourced foods,” Chef Mayle makes his goal for the new Sunday Brunch clear: “to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary, including new twists on traditional brunch favorites … like our new, truffle chicken bowl with a ‘truffle-icious’ sunny side up egg, avocado, tomatoes, toasted faro and quinoa, and goat cheese.”

Il Forno is the perfect venue to host luncheons, dinners, or even cocktail parties for holiday festivities. Chef Mayle is offering custom menus for large parties, while guests can enjoy an airy, modern dining space and or semi-private area for special occasions.
