There are some new very good reasons to dine at Tredici Social in Bronxville. Not only do they have a small outdoor dining area in front of the restaurant, but the energetic, hands-on owner, Michael Colucci, has installed three large red sound barriers along the side wall and in the ceiling.
This first-rate new restaurant serves contemporary Italian food with a modern flair in a handsome setting of black and grey with bold accents of red.
The food is amazing under Chef, Guiseppe Fanell's guidance.
The highlights of the well thought out menu include:
Appetizers Highlights: "INSIDE OUT" MEATBALL'S which are tasty morsels of beef, pork and veal stuffed with fresh mozzarella, ricotta and fontina cheese, panko breaded and fried, topped with homemade crushed plum tomato sauce and the ARTICHOKE SALAD which is crispy Jerusalem artichokes over baby arugula, tossed with Sicilian extra virgin olive oil & limoneira vinaigrette, finished with shaved parmagiano cheese.
Entree Highlights: FREE RANGE CHICKEN which is half organic chicken prepared Scarpiello style, sautéed with sweet cherry peppers, roasted garlic, EVOO, wild mushrooms and crumbled sausage. Another winner is LOBSTER RAVIOLI which is homemade burrata filled ravioli, topped with Maine lobster, ramps, nettles, spring peas, baby spinach, grape tomatoes and a touch of cream.
Homemade Dessert Highlights: Light, fluffy and delicious COCONUT CAKE and a decadent CHOCOLATE CAKE, both served with whipped cream and strawberries.
Tredici Social serves outstanding wines by the glass and the service is impeccable. There are a variety of specials offered every evening.
