Tuesdays have traditionally been the most popular night of the week for dining at Primal — Christie Peters and Kyle Michael’s pasta-centric Italian restaurant in Saskatoon. That’s wine and pasta night, when, for just $25, you get a plate of tagliatelle with local pork and beef-heart ragù or Spaghetti alla Chitarra Puttanesca with Bottarga, or any of the other dozen-odd house-made pastas on the menu — along with a glass of the house wine, white or red. When the pandemic struck, the restaurant “really wanted to translate that success to takeout,” Peter explains. “So, we launched pasta with cans of wine to go.” Now, come Tuesday, for a mere $25, you can order a packaged box of any one of their pastas to go, plus a can of Californian Pinot Grigio or Zinfandel and be on your way. Try that in Toronto!
