Co-owned and operated by chef Ilias Kakouris, Brutole Restaurant serves as Danvers’s chic, upscale feeding quarters, presenting diners with a wide-ranging menu and an urbane ambiance. Starters such as the fried tender calamari ($12) warm up rusty jaw bones, and grilled pizzas such as the wild mushroom, spinach, and goat cheese pizza ($18) or the cheese single pizza ($11) offer a satisfyingly filling meal. Feasting foursomes can order entrees as diverse the lobster mac 'n' cheese ($25) or the Angus beef lasagna ($22), both of which are served in large enough portions to take half the meal home or use it to distract guard dogs during museum heists.
Executive chef Ilias Kakouris, a former apprentice of celebrity chef Nicholas Peter Valhouli, pushes up the sleeves of his white uniform as he leads his crew of chefs who roast baby eggplant, grill pizzas in the brick oven, and pan-sear scallops. Kakouris not only oversees the kitchen, but also co-owns Brutole Restaurant with Nick Kakouris, with whom he works to curate a menu of Mediterranean and American flavors. Near the warm glow of the brick oven, cooks pile pizza dough with caramelized onions, figs, and julienned pear while others top grilled beef tenderloin with a red-wine reduction.
The dark-wood-trimmed interior creates a romantic setting in which votive candles flicker atop white tablecloths and the silverware hums Tom Jones's greatest hits. A full bar draws in swarms of entranced patrons with its backlit glass shelves, wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, and signature martinis.
