Perfect for the Patio: Our Six Picks for an Evening on the Patio
Now that summer is officially here, we’re ready for open air dining on our outdoor patio! Every year we patiently wait for warm weather to arrive, so when it does we’re sure to soak up every moment. In preparation for a season of al fresco nights, we’ve put together six of our recommendations for a perfect evening on the patio.
1. Glass of Prosecco
Ahh, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as a crisp glass of prosecco on a warm summer night. Start with something sparkling like the Villa Sandi Prosecco "Il Fresco" or the Desiderio Bisol Prosecco Rose by the glass, and let it set the tone for the evening. Enjoy it by the glass or share a bottle among the table!
2. Local oysters
If there’s one pairing we love, it’s bivalves and bubbles! Indulge in fresh local oysters while you sip your glass of prosecco. We’re currently offering varieties from Massachusetts – from Standish Shore, Cotuit Bay and Plymouth Bay, served with classic accompaniments. For the first week of July (Monday, July 3rd through Friday, July 7th), take advantage of $1 oysters all night on the patio and in our bar & lounge, and every Monday night throughout the summer!
3. Summer cocktail
Keep your spirits high by following your first course with one of the cocktails from our summer list. The “Cilantro Mezcalita” with Xicaru Mezcal, Combier Liqueur, Muddled Jalapeno & Cilantro, Agave and Fresh Lime offers the perfect balance of spice and sweetness. Another favorite is the new “Lychee Sangria” with Lychee Infused White Wine and Elderflower Liqueur. Not sure which to choose? Our knowledgeable servers will offer recommendations or even have the bartenders mix up something custom.
4. Wood-Grilled Steak
Moving on to the main course, we highly recommend one of our red meat options, perfectly cooked over the wood-fire grill. Seared over an open flame, your steak will be juicy and tender, no matter which prime cut you choose. We offer entrée options from Ribeye, to Sirloin, to Filet, all served with a sea salt baked potato, roasted garlic butter, vin cotto, and grilled romaine with gorgonzola.
5. Panna Cotta di Caramello
There’s no better way to finish the meal than with something sweet! Our Panna Cotta di Caramello is a light and velvety dessert that’s sure to please. Made with Tahitian Vanilla Bean and topped with mixed nut praline, salted caramel, and lace tuile, it’s rich in flavor but not too heavy. Other popular options are our seasonal house made sorbettos and gelatos which include three scoops in three different flavors.
End the night as the Italians do with a pick-me-up in the form of espresso. It will pair beautifully with the panna cotta and leave you feeling energized. Or, if you’d prefer not to have caffeine, we offer decaf options as well. Either way, the dark and rich flavors of the beans will complement your dessert course of choice.
