Trattoria Bel Paese
During the day, Trattoria Bel Paese cuts a humble figure with its deli area bursting with grilled panini, fresh salads, and Italian hero sandwiches. By night, though, chefs draw a curtain around the glass counter and, according to Teresa Politano of the Star-Ledger, this "unassuming little Clark Kent of a restaurant" sheds its eyeglasses to fight villainous hunger with a menu of authentic Sicilian and Italian specialties. Heaping portions of pastas with sweet red sauce and veal with cream sauce perch atop the floral tablecloths with gluten-free and organic ingredients substituted in by request. Platters of hot chicken parmigiana and fresh black mussels with marinara also zoom to special events or impromptu reenactments of special events under the supervision of Trattoria Bel Paese's catering team.
