Leonardo’s Renaissance Table

The great artist Leonardo might have been from the town Vinci, near Florence, but he spent a lot of time in Milan. It’s the difference between Florence and Milan cuisine that’s the focus of Leonardo’s Renaissance Table, an accompaniment to the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s current show “Leonardo da Vinci, Man, Inventor, Genius.” Diners will enjoy a four-course dinner of goat cheese pesto, salad, grilled chicken Milanese and pistachio ice cream. They’ll also hear about Leonardo’s views regarding diet (hint: he was an animal lover and believed in healthy living). And for the kitchen engineers out there, you’ll get to see the Renaissance prototypes for some of the kitchen gadgets we’ve all grown to love. Eat up at 7 p.m. Damian’s Cucina Italiana, 3011 Smith. For information, call 713-639-4629 or visit www.hmns.org. $74 to $84.
Tue., July 8, 7 p.m., 2008
