Hello Kitty Menu at Antonello Ristorante

So you’ve run around town on a hunt for the Hello Kitty food truck and you’ve braved the long lines at the Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-up Container inside the Irvine Spectrum Center. Now elevate your HK foodie game with a fancy sit-down meal at a well respected and revered Italian fine-dining establishment in the OC.

For a limited time only from Oct. 12 to Nov. 12, 2016, Antonello Ristorante in Santa Ana is offering an exclusive four-course Hello Kitty menu at $35.95 a pop. It features three wines from the Hello Kitty Wine Collection produced by the Torti family of winemakers in Italy, and Sanrio, the parent company behind the world’s most beloved feline character whom in 2014 was announced to not be a cat after all (honestly, I remain in denial of this claim).

Menu highlights include watermelon slices and flourless chocolate cake in the shape of Hello Kitty and pink bowtie pasta. The Hello Kitty Wine Collection is a licensed product and has been in limited distribution in the U.S. since 2010. It’s available at select specialty wine shops, and Antonello’s is the only restaurant in the country offering the Hello Kitty menu and wine pairing.

So don’t delay and make your reservations now before you miss out on this special engagement that only true die-hard Hello Kitty lovers can appreciate and enjoy. And if you just so happen to be one of the first 100 diners of the menu, you’ll receive a free gift bag with all sorts of fun Sanrio goodies.
