Truffle Fettuccine Carbonara

Sinema’s executive chef Kyle Patterson’s inspired and creative take on classic American cuisine will place before you dishes to delight all your senses. The heavy meals of winter give way to lighter, crisper, more colorful fare as the local farms from which Sinema sources emerge from their long winter’s nap.

“It is, by far, my favorite season for ingredients and cooking — the first strawberries and peas of the year, the ramps (a wild vegetable similar to leeks), favas, all of it,” Kyle says.

Kyle blends the fresh flavors and crisp textures of spring to paint on the plate a meal to be remembered in a setting to be savored. Hungry? Try one of Kyle’s latest masterpieces of the season, truffle fettuccine carbonara.
