When it comes to good Italian in South Florida, one name tends to pop up all the time. Angelo Elia, owner of Casa D'Angelo could probably be credited with bringing high-end Italian to Broward County.
Now the locally famed chef is bringing his laid-back, casual -- and much less expensive -- concept, D'Angelo Pizza, Wine Bar, and Tapas to Delray Beach.
In early fall, D'Angelo D'Angelo Pizza, Wine Bar, Tapas is making its way to The Shoppes at Addison Place.
"We love the vibe and community of Delray Beach and feel it will be the perfect fit for our third location of D'Angelo's. People love the authentic Italian food and great wines we offer at such affordable prices," said Elia, who recently sold his ownership share of another Delray outpost, D'Angelo Trattoria.
The menu will feature an array of small plates, ceviche and carpacci, traditional Italian comfort foods, homemade desserts, craft cocktails, and a good selection of wines available by the glass and bottle.
Small plates range from $7 to $12, and include a wide selection of options as short rib and scallop with broccoli rabe risotto; poached egg crostini with fava and proscuitto salad; and D'Angelo signatures like veal and pecorino cheese meatballs; sautéed clams and mussels
For $10 to $13, a selection specialty ceviche and carpacci will be available such as the tonno, tuna carpaccio with arugula and chopped tomato; manzo - beef carpaccio with shaved Reggiano and truffle oil; and maialino - cured pork, arugula, and black olives with an orange citronette.
Traditional Italian comfort foods will be the main feature of the concept. Paninis, calzones, and wood frittatas, such as the Porcheta panini with wood oven roasted pork on foccaccia; the Norcino calzone with broccolini rapini, sausage, and ricotta; and the Patate frittata with potato, spinach, and mozzarella range from $9 to $13. Authentic Italian wood fired pizza's ($10 to $15) like white the Fico Pizza Bianche with stracchino cheese, sundried figs, black pepper and the traditional red Margherita.
Desserts will be priced between $6 to $8, including house-made gelato and sorbet and well-known Italian favorites like tiramisu and cannolis.
