Ryan DePersio doesn't have a lot of time on his hands. He runs not only Montclair's Fascino with his family but also the marina-side Battello, which he reopened with a fresh look in early 2014. The space's revival has quickly made it an in-demand spot for weddings. Here's a look at what's made it so popular.
Something Old: The Food
DePersio found success at Fascino with a culinary style he describes as "Italian without borders." He brings the same style to Battello, with dishes such as homemade ricotta gnocchi, lauded by the Star-Ledger as "an impossibly ethereal dish and is itself worth the trip."
Something New: The Cocktails
Fascino is a BYOB spot, so DePersio was eager to start a cocktail program at Battello. He brought in a mixologist to conceptualize drinks such as the Jules, a simple, yet complex pairing of Glenfiddich and lemon-chamomile syrup. The drink list is rounded out by predominantly Italian wines, as well as domestic and imported craft beers.
Something Borrowed: The Decor
DePersio spared no expense in his face-lift of Battello, hiring HGTV star Anthony Carrino to redesign the interior. Much of the marina-inspired decor is salvaged, including the rowboat hanging above the entrance and the brass yacht lanterns affixed to the walls.
Something Blue: The View
Floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides of the dining room frame what the Star-Ledger calls "a view of Manhattan that has no peer." Anchored by One World Trade Center, the skyline often looks impossibly blue, thanks to the Newport Yacht Club and Marina waters and endless sky surrounding it.
