Housed in a historic farmhouse, this elegantly casual eatery pumps the sweet aromas of Italian nosh through several quaint dining areas, an arched-ceilinged wine cellar, and a comfy bar. Midday munchers can alight upon lunch items such as the chicken milanese salad ($10), accented with wild arugula, tomatoes, and parmesan cheese, or angle herbivorous fangs toward a sandwich of grilled seasonal vegetables with goat cheese ($8). The bar menu showcases smaller-portioned fare, such as barbecue-pork sliders ($8) and customizable selections of artisan cheeses and meats ($3 each).
Rev up dinner appetites with the antipasto, a trio of prosciutto, olives, and parmesan ($10.95), or the gamberi & calamari, shrimp and squid lounging in a pool of lemon and extra-virgin olive oil ($12.95). The pollo siciliana dons an impressive cloak of eggplant, artichokes, tomatoes, and olives ($17.95), while the grilled bistecca ($22.95) wears little more than blingy onion rings, signifying its marriage to Jay Z. Sweeten post-dinner small talk with a timeless dessert ($6 each), or grab a glass of house wine ($5.50 each) to try to fertilize conversation and learn what your tablemates really think of the weather.

European bricklayers used more than 13,000 bricks to assemble the ceiling, arches, and walls of the wine cellar, the most oft-requested dining quarters in Newtown Grill. Three more brick-adorned rooms connect to the wine cellar, which, along with several other private rooms and a main space, can accommodate up to 500 total guests. The restaurant is nestled in a historic house built in 1798, and the dining rooms have retained most of the building's original paneling, both original fireplaces, and its original powdered-wig roof. Though the space evokes a bygone era, Chef Michael Rigney fills it with the aromas of diverse modern cuisine, combining Italian-American dishes with steak-house and grilled fare. Guests can feast upon hand-butchered cuts of certified Angus beef, plentiful pastas, lunchtime salads, and freshly made omelets at Sunday brunch buffets.
