Greenwich, CT - Morello Italian Bistro is adding a dash of romance to its traditional Italian menu with heart-melting a la carte specials this Valentine’s Day. The scrumptious specials will be offered Friday, Feb. 14, Saturday, Feb. 15 and Sunday, Feb. 16.
There’s no better place to impress a loved one than the stylish, sophisticated setting of Morello. Guests will dine under the dramatic tiled arches and vaulted ceilings designed by world-famous architect Rafael Guastavino, Jr. and experience elegant cuisine made of the highest quality ingredients.
Begin the evening with a specialty Valentine’s Day cocktail – a Tangerine Bellini made with Prosecco, Grand Marnier, and tangerine purée or a Crema Di Lampone Martini made with Absolut Vanilla vodka, Bailey’s Irish Cream, and raspberry liquor finished with a cocoa nib tuile.
Choose from mouthwatering appetizers including yellowtail crudo in a pomegranate-fennel dressing and seared fois gras in a pineapple-citrus conserva with toasted brioche. Then, please your palette with decadent risotto with crab, hand-rolled Trofie pasta with rock shrimp, pan-seared halibut in a ginger-romaine broth, or bone-in grilled veal chop with porcini mushrooms, potatoes, and late harvest radicchio salad.
Finish the romantic and savory experience with one of Morello’s unforgettable Valentine’s Day desserts, like Coure di Crema, a delicate heart-shaped dessert made with chevre and mascarpone cheeses – translating to “heart of cream” in Italian – and Chocolate Pavlova, a light and airy meringue served with tangerine whipped cream, dark chocolate sauce and seasonal fruit.
“These Valentine’s Day specials will certainly make for a romantic night out,” said Jimmy Branigan, general manager of Morello. “We love helping couples celebrate this evening and make it as memorable as possible.”
