They first start out by wheeling the full (and heavy) hollowed out wheel of Parmesan or Pecorino to your table. Then, the server will pour in a shot (or two) of vodka and ignite it. As the flame and vodka burn off, the cheese begins to melt leaving a small pool of freshly melted cheese. Finally, the pasta is added and mixed together with the melted cheese from the actual wheel creating a magical and visual cheesy plate of pasta. It is then served table-side from the cheese wheel and of course, topped with more freshly grated cheese.
Salute’s “Signature Pasta” rotates every few months with different sauces and house-made noodles. This is a must get dish when dining. Trust us.
