Holiday dining at Morello

Bre-Morello-specials-11-7Few things bring family and friends together like the warmth of Italian tradition and great food. On Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve — two of the most anticipated holidays of the year — Morello Italian Bistro Executive Chef Kevin Garcia will offer holiday-inspired special menus, to accompany his popular a la carte menu. Morello will offer a traditional Italian “Feast of Seven Fishes,” on Dec. 24, followed by exquisite a la carte specials on Dec. 31.

Morello’s Christmas Eve Feast of Seven Fishes consists of seven fish in four courses, including red snapper, tuna and salmon crudo, stewed mussels and clams, risotto with Maine lobster and Dover sole. Guests can choose to order the four course menu for $79 per person, or select items a la carte. Seating is 4 to 9 p.m.

One week later, there’s no better place to ring in the New Year than the stylish and energized setting of Morello, decorated with party balloons and favors, the restaurant said. Chef Garcia has planned elegant holiday specials featuring high-quality ingredients, which will be offered a la carte, in addition to Morello’s traditional Italian menu. The offerings include oysters Rockefeller, grilled head-on shrimp cocktail, spaghetti with braised octopus and bone marrow, risotto with white truffle, King crab legs with fingerling potatoes and grilled artichokes, veal chop with Jerusalem artichokes and mushrooms, prime-aged rib eye steak for two, roasted vanilla pineapple with zabaglione and dark chocolate tort with espresso caramel.

New Year’s Eve seating is 4 to 10:30 p.m. with a Prosecco toast at midnight.

Reservations are recommended for both occasions and can be made by calling Morello at 203-661-3443.
