Greville Street's newest Italian joint, Rossi, is serving up a weekly jazz and lasagne night dubbed 'In The Corner' until the end of September featuring a live 'jazz-hop' band, combining jazz and hip hop influences. Some of the featured live artists include composer Grant Windsor (who's worked with the likes of Gregory Porter, Kamaal Williams and Jose James), Sensible J and Caleb Shand.

These guys will be performing every Wednesday, providing a smooth backing track for the main course: chef Thibault Boggio's signature lasagne.

"It's not your classic jazz vibe that's already been done," Rossi's live music curator Sean Marchetti says. "We are infusing elements of jazz, hip hop and sample culture. Our musicians will be exploring sounds and melodies, while the guests explore our amazing food and drinks – it's an exciting collaboration."

The lasagne itself comes in three speeds – classic meat, seafood and vegetarian. The classic is a mix of beef, pork and bone marrow sourced from nearby Gary's Butcher at Prahran Market, slow-cooked for eight hours in red wine and tomato sauce, then layered with parmesan and béchamel.

Rossi's 'In The Corner' series will run every Wednesday until the end of September. Entry is free – you just pay a la carte. Walk-ins are welcome, too, but it's always a good idea to book.
