Plano is home to both national and global companies. However, did you know that the city also boasts some of the best parks, theaters, and retail outlets in the country? Best of all, it plays host to many exciting events throughout the year. As the fall season approaches, recharge by attending the popular Plano Food + Wine Festival.
A Little About the Festival Host
The host for the event will be Maggiano’s Little Italy. This popular chain restaurant has locations in Texas, Illinois, California, Virginia, Washington, New Jersey, Florida, and Arizona.
The Maggiano’s location in Plano is at The Shops at Willow Bend. You can enjoy lunch, brunch, or dinner here. The restaurant also has carryout and catering menus. You’ll find both classic and signature Italian dishes to tempt your palate, such as fettucini alfredo, beef tenderloin medallions, eggplant parmesan, gnocchi & Italian sausage, and chicken Marsala.
