More than "Pasta and Jazz" at Sunday's event

Night & Day — The first time Tracy Gillick was asked to participate in “Jazz and Pasta” she cooked up her chicken picatta. It never occurred to her that the classic Italian dish — of gently fried chicken breasts infused with lemon juice — had no pasta to its name.

No matter.  Everybody loved the picatta and it’s back on the menu at Sunday’s annual fundraiser for the Lewiston Jazz Festival.

Gillick, owner of the Hillview Cafe, is happy to participate in the eighth annual fundraiser for the Lewiston Jazz Festival being held from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Waterstreet Landing. Like all the other restaurants involved, it’s an opportunity to support the annual jazz festival and also showcase area restaurants best pasta dishes.

While the Hillview’s picatta won’t have pasta, the cafe’s offering will allow Hillock to showcase the capabilities of her  breakfast and lunch restaurant, including a catering menu that include more upscale offerings.  

Other participating restaurants include: Apple Granny Restaurant; Brickyard Pub & BBQ; Casa Antica; Como Restaurant; De La Casa; Destino’s Pizzeria; DiCamillo Bakery; Favorite’s Pizzeria; Fortuna’s Restaurant; Frenchy’s Restaurant; Macri’s Italian Grille; Smith Brothers Pizza;  Town Hall American Bistro; Village Bake Shoppe; Water Street Landing; Wegmans; Wine on Third and the Youngstown Village Diner.

Chairpersons for the event are Lucy Muto of M&T Bank and Janet Brown of M&T Bank Mortgage. According to Muto, “The fifth annual event was held last spring with hundreds turning out to support the jazz festival. We are hoping for an encore performance.”

The event will include live jazz, cash bar and a basket and silent auction. Various local jazz musicians have offered their talents for the enjoyment of ticket holders. There will be performances by The Ron Corsaro Trio, Christian Campos, My Cousin Tone, Caputi and Co. with Special Guests and Janice Mitchell, Jim Beishline & Friends.
