Haters Gonna Hate


(Carb) haters gonna hate. Let ’em. Let’s be honest–when talking about comfort food, no one waxes poetic about beet puree or a zucchini foam–it’s carbs that gets everyone happy and nostalgic. Contrary to current belief, carbs have a slew of benefits to our bodies. Consider marathoners, the titans of runners. A high carb diet is advised for days leading up to a marathon for these super athletes because it improves endurance, allows them to train harder and has a host of benefits to the immune system.

Think like a marathoner–try one of our pastas. Our pastas–imported from Italy—are then loaded with seafood, tossed with the freshest of veggies, laden with pancetta, smothered in pesto or layered with a rich bolognese. Come on, you know you want it; we’ll keep your secret from your carb-phobic friends.


Peel Me a Grape…Tomato


Tony’s takes the ubiquitous tomato and mozzarella salad and spirals it in a new direction. We use golden and red grape peeled tomatoes. This preparation makes it more receptive to our house-made marinade. The cheese–stracciatella—is also marinated in a mixture of lemon juice and zest, red pepper flakes, and fresh basil, transforming it into wonderfully fluffy pillows. Your taste buds will thank you.

Wine Selections

We’ve upgraded and greatly expanded our wine list to include several different varietals, something to accommodate whatever you are celebrating and to compliment your entree. Our premium pour selections now include different vintages of both Opus One and Cardinale by the glass.

Looking for something you will not get anywhere else? We now offer 2012 J. Daniel Cuvee Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This was rated a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker, Jr. This wine is pre-sold before the grapes are even grown and is sold out until 2016; we mean it when we say you will not find this wine anywhere else in Ohio! Ask your server for details.
