Tucked away near Kenwood Towne Center, Rusty's Ristorante hosts classic American and Italian fine dining in a down-to-earth casual atmosphere. Commence culinary expeditions with a combo platter of starters, which unites cheese, onion rings, and wings in a mission to whet appetites, or the winterized mushrooms, flavorful fungi sautéed and snuggling under a blanket of melted provolone to protect themselves from cold winds and door-to-door snow-plow salesmen.
Entrees include chicken parmigiana broiled and baked in cheese and tomato sauce and the linguini and clams, which frolic in a sea of white-wine or tomato sauce. Rusty's quartet of veal specialties include the mushroom- and wine-infused veal marsala and the veal piccata, a hearty mound of floured medallions simmered in lemon and draped in laurels of spaghetti and garlic butter like the winner of an Sicilian bodybuilding pageant.
Rusty's Ristorante's chefs craft a truly extensive menu that presents classic Italian and American cuisine side-by-side. The menu is characterized less by fusion than partnership; chicken livers and bacon share a menu page with veal marsala, and appetizers feature eggplant parmigiana or calamari next to good, old-fashioned hot wings. But beyond all of the choices, seafood, pasta, and veal hold the spotlight here, with specialties such as veal picatta, charbroiled halibut, and a dish made up of half spaghetti and half ravioli for the full Italian experience. Hoagies, burgers, and ribs help round out the menu, and all dishes can be complemented with a glass of wine or beer in a down-to-earth casual atmosphere.
