Every day, chef and owner Ray Moscardelli—a graduate of the Johnson & Wales Culinary Institute—ventures out to hand pick fresh cuts of meat and seafood to sizzle and sear for The Pistachio Grille’s New-World cuisine. Vintage-style posters adorn the vermillion walls in the intimate dining room, where servers welcome diners with attentive service, and crisp white tablecloths put guests at ease with enthusiastic handshakes. Omelets and just-woken pancakes fill breakfasting bellies with morning classics. Lunch and dinner menus satisfy with piquant pastas, such as the grilled veggie lasagna or the rigatoni with broccoli, which veils a colorful mélange of jumbo-lump crabmeat and sun-dried tomatoes dapperly dressed in a white-wine-and-curry cream sauce. Guests can also bring their own bottles of wine, beer, and love potions to pair with the savory fare. Additionally, The Pistachio Grille’s on- and off-site catering pleases palates with items culled from the eatery’s menus or with custom dishes and hors d’oeuvres.
