Grand windows adorned with red velveteen drapes, rustic wooden rafters, and a cathedral ceiling envelope multiple dining rooms, a social bar scene, eclectic artwork by artist Leigha Zimmer atop the exposed brick walls, dark wood furnishings, and a private wine room.
Thin crust pizzas, a “classico” of crushed plum tomato, fresh basil and grande mozzarella, and a more untraditional version topped with caramelized onion, spicy soppressata, sweet potato, goat cheese, fresh garden herbs, and mozzarella are customer favorites. Comforting pasta dishes include; pan seared jumbo Atlantic prawns and gnocchi in a spicy arrabbiata sauce with melted leeks and broccoli florets; and farm-raised slow roasted Angus ragu with brown butter and carrots, Grana Padano, over orecchiette. Seasonal land and sea entrées are currently featuring flavorful preparations of 23-hour slow braised short ribs with sautéed broccolini and roasted potato puree; 24 Green Circle Farms free-range chicken scarpiello with crumbled Deyulio sausage, San Marzano tomatoes, peppers, and onions, over soft polenta; and pancetta pesto wrapped Atlantic cod with white truffle fingerling potatoes, haricot vert, and a gremolata beurre blanc.
Desserts are decadent incarnations of Italian specialties such as; handmade “zepoli” potato donuts coated in cinnamon sugar; a cannoli duo of chocolate cream and cherry almond whipped ricotta fillings; and an over-the-top spumoni sundae with pistachio and Fabbri cherry ice cream topped with candied pistachios, Italian chocolate, and a Fabbri cherry on top. A curated wine list of global varietals, craft beer selections, creative cocktails, and premium spirits round out the beverage program.
Bar Zepoli executes seamless private dining affairs and catered events for large groups. Managed by seasoned hospitality professionals, private functions are further enhanced by the restaurant’s talented Chef, versatile and creative menu offerings, numerous dining room options, and stellar service.
