Inside the kitchen at Riverside Manor is a staff that knows how to bring the best out of their Atlantic-harvested ingredients and Italian cooking methods. Fresh, homemade pastas envelop pumpkin ravioli and serve as pillows for shrimp and scallops. Filet mignon tops bruschetta or stars in an entr?e of its own. And eight brick-oven pizzas come strewn with four cheeses, spinach and feta, or crispy buffalo chicken. And to accommodate as many patrons as possible, the cooks prepare a whole-wheat penne primavera along with an entire menu of gluten-free dishes.
But perhaps it?s the building itself that best represents an elegant fusing of old and new. On the site of what was once a 19th-century silk mill, the doors now open into a scene that could fool you into thinking you just passed through a wormhole to Tuscany. Along with hand-carved wooden furnishings and ornamental ironwork, brick archways and painted trompe l?oeils bring a playfulness to the space, which doubles as a frequent host for weddings and other special events.
It's inconvenient to crave those buttery pretzels they sell at the mall because, well, you can only drive to the mall to get them. Or write yourself a mental IOU to snag one next time you need to go shoe shopping.
Hope Moran opted to work around this inconvenience: She instead headed to her own kitchen, where she experimented with various ingredients until she perfected her very own recipe. She modeled her morsels after New York-style pretzels, but also wanted to give them a flaky softness reminiscent of European pastries or air-headed teddy bears. After being assured by friends and family that her creations were, in fact, quite delicious, she decided to open her very own pretzel place.
Today, at Le Bretzel, she has created a variety gourmet-inspired pretzels. Some are sweet—as with the cinnamon raisin—and some are savory, such as the spicy jalapeno pretzel. If you're looking for more than a snack, opt for stuffed pretzels—a sugar-sprinkled version conceals a cache of raspberry, pomegranate, and brie, and the chipotle-spiced pretzel is packed with bacon and cheddar. The eatery uses Hope's original homemade recipes, which feature all-natural ingredients.
Like a dream about a baseball game, pretzels reappear throughout the menu: as buns for burgers and sliders, the dough for cheesesteak pizzas, and as rolls for sandwiches such as the Wiggins with turkey, stuffing, and cranberry aioli. Hope and her team also prepare a handful of (pretzel-free) appetizers, including clams steamed with shallots, garlic, prosciutto, and white wine.
At Primo Pizza & Grill, chefs whirl handmade dough and whole, peeled tomatoes into a variety of thin-crust pizzas. While the menu includes classic standbys such as the hawaiian pizza, customers can also create their own perfect pies from toppings such as garlic, mushrooms, pepperoni, and sausage. What really shines through, however, is the restaurant?s large selection of specialty pies: buffalo-chicken pizza is topped with chicken and zesty buffalo sauce; Nutella pizza with brown and powdered sugar; and the American-style pizza gets topped with steak, peppers, onions, american cheese, and a pervasive dislike of the metric system.
While pizza dominates the menu, diners can also explore traditional Italian entrees, including dinner specialties such as chicken scampi, veal milanese, and spaghetti with clam sauce.
