17 Summer in Lodi Upgrades Menu to Encourage Communal Dining

17 Summer, the hyper-seasonal fine dining establishment in Lodi, has made some major changes to how it offers it’s menu for the future.

The brother/sister team of Joseph and Jenna Cuccia are still changing dishes as often as possible, however they’ve switched to a prix-fixe menu ($48/pp) consisting of three sections — highlighting 17 of their favorite current (in season) dishes at any given time — with diners choosing one dish from each section (View Menu).

This style is proving popular in eateries across NYC, with the Cuccia’s noticing a tendency for guests to share dishes amongst the table — in fact they’ve been crafting all their dishes going forward with the purpose of promoting a communal dining experience.


Keeping themselves busy this year, the siblings launched a monthly vegan dining series (View Info), were named ‘Restaurant Stars on the Rise’ (View Article), host a weekly five course tasting a their “chef’s counter” (View Info) and continue to appear regularly at the James Beard Foundation in Manhattan.

17 Summer is open Wednesdays thru Saturdays beginning at 5:00pm for dinner service.
