Tender circles of fresh mozzarella pair with tomatoes on cold sandwiches, and freshly sliced Boar’s Head meats line paninis on artisanal ciabatta bread. Patrons may opt to dig into housemade crab cakes, order meals to serve families back home, or cater special events such as holidays, christenings and graduations.
Our paninis are like no other! Try the Cuban or Smoked Chicken paninis. Don't forget about our all butter Chocolate Chip & Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies.
For dinner try our veal meatballs , eggplant parm or chicken Francese.
