When it came time for the team at Johnny Carino’s to come up with some new recipes, they began rifling through their personal cooking histories. Executive chef Chris Peitersen took his first kitchen job at a barbecue joint when he was 14, so he was primed to create Italian baby back ribs. By infusing brown sugar barbecue sauce with balsamic vinegar imported from Modena, he’s given the marinade a more acidic bite than typical barbecue sauces. As the ribs slowly roast and char on an oak grill, he bastes on his creation before finishing the dish with a dusting of parmesan.
The ribs are one of Carino’s many menu items that follow the restaurants’ approach of classic Italian preparations modified by forward-thinking flavor combinations. Diners will find a crispy pepperoni burger capped with mozzarella and fried pepperoni, or sautéed tilapia spiced with garlic and jalapeño. Other signature dishes include the 16-layer lasagna, Skilletinis that sizzle with spaghetti and a choice of meat, and tiramisu made from scratch.
The culinary masterminds at Apollo Restaurant craft juicy beef burgers and Belgian-style fries by hand from fresh ingredients. Every day, chefs grind two cuts of meat together, which intermingle in each patty to form edible masterpieces that resemble flat, cylindrical recreations of Michelangelo's David. Twin grilled-cheese sandwiches take the place of buns in The Mannimal burger, holding caramelized onions, bacon, and a patty in their cheesy embrace. Two patties, cheese slices, and bacon strips reflect a flavorful image unto one another in The Narcissist burger, tickling taste buds while supplying one's stomach with sweet nothings. Bacon, ham, and sausage join a hamburger patty and egg in The Farm burger, and hand-cut kennebec potatoes transform into Belgian-style fries after a golden brown frying and thorough dusting in Italian sea salt. Apollo Restaurant keeps a kitchen stocked full of fresh ingredients, many sourced locally when seasonally possible, leading to a fresh burger experience rivaled only by raising a cow in your kitchen and teaching it to perfectly toast buns.
