Abbiocco Fine Dining has several catering packages available to players looking to have us cater at their special event or even host their special event. We strongly believe in not gating role-play behind in-game currency (or worse, out-of-game currency), but our time and effort has value so catering services are never completely free. Please review the packages below and see which appeals to your needs, your in-game wallet, and contact us to begin negotiations.

In-House Catering

Frugally Fancy

Abbiocco's Frugally Fancy package is designed to deliver a catered experience that looks like it comes with a painful price tag but instead comfortably pinches the wallet.

Frugally Fancy


Getting Started: October 20, 2020

Two amateur chefs took their love for creating culinary delights to a new level, leaving behind their jobs at a nearby lounge. Nyte Snow, a Doman refugee, and Maes Otsdarva, an Ul'dah native, banded together to purchase a small plot of property in the Goblet.
Nyte and Maes did not expect rampant success, and the name they chose together, Intangible Dreams, reflected that realization. Their dreams may never be touched, may never be real, but they were going to have fun on the way.
The duo dreamed small, building up a small boutique café -- but the success of their grand opening, which saw people filling the building, the yard, and the area around -- led them to realize a small property would not be enough to recognize their long-term dreams.

Upsizing the Dream

A mysterious stranger and benefactor arrived at that timely moment, offering the pair use of a larger plot of land that was all but adjacent to the original boutique café! Pulling together their profits from the grand opening and supported by their friends, the pair managed to renovate the new home of Intangible Dreams.
The following week, after hours of painting, wall-papering, moving furniture, and preparing, the new, larger Intangible Dreams opened down the street.
The intangible dream, that of a busy, thriving fine-dining establishment, all too quickly became very tangible. While Maes stepped back, Nyte continued forward, recruiting and hiring staff to build up a robust family of employees.
Five months later, Nyte and company were ready to take the final step of realizing the dream becoming tangible -- a name change:
Abbiocco Fine Dining officially opened its doors for the first time in March 2021, and in doing so left behind the nebulous what-ifs and embraced its own success.

Catering & Special Events

Intangible Dreams hosted its first special event in December 2020, a month of special Starlight Celebrations. A friend, Santa Clauws, donned robe and beard and allowed patrons to sit on his knee and whisper what they wished for at the height of the festival.
This event was the first of many, and it drove up the restaurant's catering business. From there, Intangible Dreams had doors open, working at festivals, sporting events, farmers' markets, pub crawls, and more.
In spring 2021, the restaurant became an official sponsor of the Ul'dah Gil Turtles, a blitzball team competing in Menphina Madness.
The venue is a regular at several different farmers' market-style events, and is frequently hired to cater Free Company events, weddings, and more.

A New Name & A Feast Reborn

About half-way through their first year, Maes and Nyte both realized that Intangible Dreams wasn't a good fit as far as a name goes. The dream was no longer intangible -- it had come true, far more than either of them expected.
In the spring, the duo unveiled a new name and logo: Abbiocco Fine Dining. (for those of you who speak Italian, please enjoy the joke).
At this time, Maes also stepped back, Nyte buying out his interest in the restaraunt. While Maes continued to be a primary stakeholder, he was no longer an operational decision-maker.
As Abbiocco Fine Dining reached its first year anniversary, it hatched the plan for A Feast Reborn, a single-day food festival welcoming restaurants from all over Eorzea and both the near and far East. So many venues and performers over the year had helped Abbiocco Fine Dining become self-sufficient, busy, and successful, and had helped boost its brand as a high-quality dining experience, that Nyte wished to give back. While some venues are established, several are just finding their feet -- and the festival, like many Intangible Dreams took part in during its first few months, can help make the venue a success.

Bigger & Better Dreams

A month prior to its second anniversary, Abbiocco Fine Dining realized its ultimate dream, moving into a larger venue in the Goblet. Hopping shards to Diabolos, Abbiocco Fine Dining moved to Goblet Ward 14, Plot 35, a large that allowed the venue to unite its dining venues and offer a rentable, customizable decorating hall for special events.

This menu was the end of the apple season. The desserts all featured apples, with both the appetizers and entrées remaining fairly light, but hinting at the chilly months to come. We favoured gin cocktails in this season of Abbiocco's menu to honour the new 1920s prohibition/art deco theme of the relaunch.

Fall has arrived and the last of the summer berries and fruits have been plucked from the branches.

Bartender's Picks

Green Isle Coffee

There are few drinks better suited to warming the soul after coming in from the rain on a chilly fall afternoon than this one. The whiskey helps to elevate the coffee and brings a fresh element to a warm, rustic blend. Strongly recommended for any coffee lovers.

Bartender's Picks

Golden Whale Rum

Fat-washing a liquor requires browning butter, mixing in the spirit, cooling it until the fat separates, and draining out the liquid - with all of the oils and buttery flavor now imbued. This process creates a divine butterscotch-flavored rum suitable for Abbiocco.

Bartender's Picks

Selena's Pousse-Café

An Ishgardian high-society cocktail, this drink is meant to be enjoyed sip-by-sip; one sip of your spirit, then of your coffee, to allow for the unique flavor combination. As you drink through the layers you'll enjoy a changing experience. Best enjoyed post-meal.

Red Wines

Cabernet Sauvignon

This deep-bodied wine holds within its burgundy grasp a mix of cedar and spice. Grown in the forests of the Black Shroud, aged in barrels of heritage cedar, it holds within it timeless flavours expected of the vintage.

Ishgardian Merlot

From the High Houses comes a surprisingly sensual offering. Opaque garnet tones hide a dry, full-flavoured wine with hints of plum and vanilla. Aged in oak barrels, this makes for a smooth finish.

0

The Sabotender

Sweet

Ul'dah's crystal clear tequila, shaken together with the juice of a rosy pomegranate and a dash of syrup, is served in a sugar-rimmed margarita glass of crushed ice. Garnished with bright ruby red pomegranate arils..

Sour

Ul'dah's crystal clear tequila, shaken together with the juice of a fresh Thanalan lime and crushed ice, is served up in a lime- and salt-rimmed margarita glass over more ice. Garned with a curled lime peel.

0

Teas & Coffees

Pearl Jasmine

This jasmine tea is created using tea scenting techniques from a thousand years ago. Aromatic jasmine blossoms are used to scent tender green tea leaves. The tea leaves are then gently hand-rolled into precious tea "pearls."

Immortal Nectar

Immortal Nectar is a rejuvenating blend from the rare, cave-aged, pu-erh found in Othard's steppes. This elixir yields a deep brown colour with a light sherry bouquet. The earthy flavor is sure to soothe your immortal soul.

Ospina

Grown in the volcanic ash of the Ruby Sea, this coffee has strong warm caramel and nut flavors with a smooth and clean finish. This coffee does not do well diluted, and is made to be slowly savoured.

Black Ivory

With notes of chocolate, malt, spice, a hint of grass and without the burnt or bitter taste of regular coffee, this cup requires attention. Coffee beans are naturally processed by Thavnair's gaja and collected by industrious gatherers.

0

White Wines

Pinot Grigio

This sweetly light offering of citrus and apple intertwined with spicy notes promises to dance upon the tongue. The aroma of honeysuckle hearkens back to its roots in Gridania. A tried and true people pleaser.

Chardonnay

A full-bodied white with a dry feel, reminiscent of vanilla in its undertones, this wine is a strong offering in the chardonnay family. These bottles are shipped at significant cost from the beleaguered isles of Thavnair.

SEPTEMBER

The Brothers

The Angelo Toddy

Lemon and honey mix with toasty-warm Ishgardian whiskey to create a simple but satisfying hot toddy to warm the heart, raise the spirits, and soothe away winter's chilly grip of the throat.

The Dante Toddy

Angelo's darker brother, Dante's hot toddy promises comforting nights inside from the storm, basking in the warmth of a crackling fire. Port, star anise, cloves, and pomegranate liqueur create this toasty drink.
