Montreal native Tony Bianco teamed up with executive chef Enzo Addario to create Hot Tomatoe, a traditional Italian bistro boasting a menu that brims with house-made, cooked-to-order pastas, flavorful meat dishes, and full- and light-bodied Italian wines. Their regional cuisine typically integrates up to seven essential ingredients—oil, garlic, basil, tomatoes, pasta, and olives—from which Snow White’s seven dwarves drew their names. In addition, the staff goes shopping for fresh ingredients three to four days a week to supplement both seasonal compositions and year-round dishes, which include veal parmigiana, filet mignon, and penne norma.
Fernanda's International Market, a treasure trove of rare ingredients and made-to-order gourmet sandwiches, bakes robust breads and fine pastries. Among a troop of hearty sandwiches, the Martorano ($8.99) stands out for its spicy temper and muscular blend of sopressata and cappacola meats. The Churchill ($8.99) loads its taste gun with Branston pickle relish and fights hunger pangs on ham-coated beaches, cheddar cheese fields, and hot mustard streets. Fernanda's also sells prepared food by the pound and hard-to-find international groceries like Thai lemon grass.
With it's staple pizza named Grandma, it's pretty clear that Carmela's Pizza & Wine Bar is steeped in familial tradition. Executive Chef Adam Fatigate expanded on the idea of his late father's Carmela's Brick Oven Pizza and Wine Bar, located in Stuart, and opened his own high-end pizzeria. Here, along with several varieties of New York?style pizzas baked on a subway rail line, Fatigate and his team create the signature Grandma's pizza, a 16-inch square, thin-crust pizza with a slightly tangy sauce and light cheese. Grandma's pizza can stay as simple as a plain cheese pie or go puttanesca-style (with olives, anchovies, and chili oil) or basil-pesto (with sun-dried tomatoes and chicken). Classic Italian dishes also populate the menu, including lasagna bolognese, veal parmesan, and seafood risotto.
While diners can carry-out food, those who stay can imbibe at Carmela's full bar, which pours 80 wines and 25 craft, imported, and domestic beers, and also whips up cocktails with its selection of 100 spirits, such as bellinis and martinis. And the restaurant also offers entertainment: guitar-violin duo Nouveaux Honkies on Tuesday, two pianists on Friday, and jazz on Saturday.
