We recently told you about Jonathon Sawyer's plans to open his long-planned Italian eatery Trentina in the old Sergio's in University Circle space.
Well, the Kickstarter campaign to raise $21,999 in 30 days begins today.
Donors to the Trentina Kickstarter can earn rewards that range from a dinner party for 20 people and a cooking class with chef Sawyer to a cocktail or even table named in your honor.
"This is not full funding, just a nice alternative to traditional financing," Sawyer explains. "The truth of the matter is, a lot of us artisans are more skilled with their knives and cutting boards than they are an Excel document or filing loan applications."
