Wings, Italian and a scrumptious cookie sandwich

West Ashley resident Carl Przybylek wants to gather his friends and family together for his dream dinner, which includes an ice-cold martini, spicy wings, an indulgent Italian entree and a delectable cookie sandwich to cap off the meal. 

DREAM DINNER GUESTS: “Family and old friends near and far.”

DRINK: Charleston’s Coldest Martini from Melfi’s. “I have seriously never had a better martini in my life. They give you a generous portion of a simple, yet perfectly executed, ice-cold martini. Enjoy in a swanky yet down-to-earth atmosphere to make a great start to your night.”

APPETIZER: Minero wings from Minero on Johns Island. “Generous portion size of grilled-to-perfection wings with just the right balance of spice (and who doesn’t love Valentina hot sauce?).”

ENTREE: Ricotta Gnocchi alla Bolognese from FIG. “There is a reason this is a constant on FIG’S rotating menu. This dish is the perfect balance of decadent and light. The slight variations in this dish depending on the season make it feel like a whole new experience every time I eat here.”

DESSERT: Confetti DBL Doozie Cookie Sandwich at Edmund’s Oast. “The soft gooey cookies with cake batter frosting in the middle is such a fun, simple treat yet feels like comfort food.”
