World-famous butcher Dario Cechinni at Michael Smith this weekend

Michael Smith — the chef-owner of his namesake upscale restaurant and the less costly but more hip Extra Virgin — recently returned from a trip to Spain with his wife, Nancy, eating at many famous restaurants. This weekend, the Smiths host one of Italy’s famous butchers, Dario Cechinni, who will be cutting up lots of meat for two special sold-out dinners.

Both dinners, priced at $175 a person, feature Cecchini displaying his meat-cutting and cooking skills. “You should see this guy in action,” says the publicist for the Smiths. “He can cut up an entire cow in two hours.”
