Now That’s Italian! 

Ariccia Cucina Italiano impresses with its classic, central Italian cuisine. 

By Jan Walsh 

Ariccia Cucina Italiana is Auburn’s Italian restaurant, which opened in 2001 in partnership with Auburn University and its sister campus in Ariccia, Italy. Here Executive Chef Marc Osier executes Italian excellence, incorporating fresh seasonal products, house made focaccia, wood fired pizzas, Italian cheeses, and Italian meats, including their signature Porchetta. 

Innovators & Early Adopters 

Steve Jobs once said that people don’t know what they want until you show it to them. I agree. But my experience has been that once you show them, the innovators and early adopters "get it."

By Jan Walsh 

Innovators and Early Adopters are the first to try new technology. They are adventurous and instinctive. And they do not miss out. They adopt the product during the pre-release or pre-launch phase, just as many of you have done with Auburn Restaurants App. From eateries joining as pre-launch Founding Members to the public being the first at the App Store and Google Play to download the free Auburn Restaurants App, you are the leaders that others soon or eventually follow, or get left behind. 

Beau Idéal

Food Hall Heaven

I’m on cloud nine at Hey Day Market Food Hall and Gathering Place. 

By Jan Walsh 

I have been anticipating the opening of the Tony & Libba Rane Culinary Science Center for years. And today I, along with my Auburn Restaurants teammates: Ada Ruth Huntley and Richard Phillips are graciously guided on a private tour by Ithaka Hospitality Partners Founder and CEO, Hans van der Reijden. The tour includes Hey Day Market and will be followed by dinner tonight at 1856 – Culinary Residence. This is the first in a series of articles of the experience. 

Cheers!
