If you live in the Princeton, NJ area, you don’t have to travel very far for great food and entertainment. Head over to Tre Piani, located in the Princeton Forrestal Village, for Comedy Improv Night and enjoy delicious food, live music, standup comedy, and improv comedy from the troupe, “Far and In Between”. Tre Piani is hosting the comedy troupe once per month on the upper floor of the restaurant. Tickets must be bought in advance and are $15 per person. Once you arrive, an additional $15 (minimum) must be spent on food and beverages.
Come for an early dinner and then stay for the show, or come and watch the show while you dine. Either way, it’s a great way to spend your evening. The show usually kicks off with about 10 minutes of live music and then proceeds into the comedy acts starting with the standup. However, my favorite part of the show is by far the improv. If you tune in to the TV show, “Whose Line is it Anyway?”, you will love Far and In Between’s show. Many of the games they play are similar to the games played on the show. Audience participation and suggestions are always welcomed.
As far as the food goes, I highly recommend ordering the restaurant’s signature spicy tuna entrée. The tuna is grilled to your liking and comes with a lobster, avocado, bacon risotto that is to die for. Enjoy it with one of the restaurant’s cocktails, like the bellini (Prosecco, peach vodka, and peach puree) or the sangria. Other notable entrees include the baked jumbo shrimp stuffed with crabmeat and wrapped in prosciutto, or the pignolia nut crusted sea scallops. For some lighter fare, enjoy one (or a few) of Tre Piani’s delicious appetizers, pizzettes or salads. The tuna tartare (some of the best I’ve had in the area), the tre stagiono pizzette (exotic mushroom pizza), or the crabmeat and avocado salad are all good choices.
Tre Piani’s next comedy night is Saturday, June 16th at 8 PM. Click here for additional details and to view Tre Piani’s other upcoming events. Reservations are suggested and can be made by calling Tre Piani at 609-452-1515. Come support a local restaurant and comedy troupe and escape for awhile!
