Yes, it’s upscale, and, yes, the floor-to-ceiling wine cellar wall, spacious half-moon booths, and majestic cylindrical lights dangling above the dining room are impressive. But the Italian restaurant is also accessible, offering a culinary journey as approachable or refined as you want it to be.
If it’s my first time, what should I order? Served in its own sauce with a touch of butter–and a small spoon for scooping out luscious bites of bone marrow–first-timers should opt for the Veal Osso Buco, veal shank patiently cooked for 12 hours with garlic, onions, celery, carrots, tomatoes, demi-glace, red wine, bay leaf, thyme, and rosemary.
Where are the ingredients sourced? From cheeses to oils, all Italian products are imported from Italy to ensure authentic notes are found in every pasta twirl and spoonful of sauce.
What’s there that I can’t get anywhere else? Bucatini Carbonara, a famously rich dish, gets an update without cream. Here, you’ll find thick strands of bucatini pasta mingled with sautéed applewood-smoked bacon, egg yolks, pecorino cheese, and black pepper for a luscious, comforting meal.
What’s Melt’s best-kept secret? There’s always a new meat slowly roasting in the kitchen for the daily special rotisserie. Mondays mean free-range chicken and roasted garlic cream, while Fridays are for pepper-spiced filets with savory bread pudding and red wine sauce.
