On Tuesday May 9th at 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM, Ken Oringer will join the team at Capo to host a gluten-free night to celebrate his newest cookbook, Cooking with My Dad, the Chef, which he wrote with his daughter Verveine Oringer after her celiac diagnosis.

The menu at Capo will highlight Ken’s favorite gluten-free recipes, such as:

  • Ramen Cacio e Pepe

  • Squid Ink Gluten Free Pasta with Spicy Crab Sauce

  • Gluten Free White Pizza with Black Truffle, Pesto and Bacon

  • Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars

Ken Oringer is the James Beard Award-winning chef and co-founder of JK Food Group behind Boston’s highly acclaimed restaurants including Italian-style enoteca Coppa, Spanish tapas restaurant Toro, the global-inspired small plates restaurant Little Donkey and Faccia a Faccia, his newest coastal Italian concept. Prior to starting JK Food Group, Oringer opened Clio in Boston (now called Uni), which was named one of “America’s Best New Restaurants” by Esquire, one of the “Top 50 Restaurants in America” by Gourmet magazine, and continues to be one of the most notable restaurants in Boston.

Capo, the iconic restaurant in South Boston, is known for their pastas, pizza & other Italian standards and has been offering up special gluten-free nights.

Chef Nick Dixon shared, “We were so excited that Ken wanted to host a GF evening with us! He often dines here on GF night with his family, so it is special to now have him in our kitchen, preparing some tasty, innovative GF items. Ken’s restaurants are top-notch, and we think he is an exceptional chef and leader in our industry. We started Gluten Free Night back in 2019. We noticed that many people would ask for gluten-free pasta and bread. So, to respond to what people wanted and needed, we challenged ourselves to make all of the Capo menu items gluten-free.  We felt that if we were going to do it, then we should go big! While testing recipes, we found quality gluten-free products that by all accounts make the food very tasty. We are proud that we have been able to take a traditionally gluten-full menu of breads, pizza and pasta and safely and successfully transform it. Gluten Free night has grown into one of the most popular nights at Capo. ”
