The culinary wizards at Lil Vinny’s Ristorante silence growling stomachs with a multifaceted menu of toothsome Italian fare. Now kicking off the kitchen’s steady parade of aromas starting at 11 a.m., a new lunch menu debuts deliquescent paninis ranging from eggplant parmigiana ($9.95) to the Sloppy Joey ($9.95), which lets midday munchers live dangerously as they try to keep its mix of bolognese, pancetta, and fontina away from work shirts or lab coats.
At dinner, chefs hand-bread the chicken pomodoro to ensure complete coverage before pan-frying and crowning it with a scrumptious headdress of roma tomatoes and white vodka cream sauce ($15.95). The roasted pork chop ($23.95) delights palates with a vinegar-pepper sauce and hilarious Winston Churchill impersonation. Landlubbing mouths find their sea taste buds between bites of pan-seared salmon that arrives at tables lounging on a golden beach of lemon risotto, lemon beurre blanc, and handsome asparagus lifeguards ($21.95).
