SOOTHING AND SENSUOUS
The Mediterranean sister among Paxos Restaurants, Melt balances sensuality and warmth with striking modern design. Dramatic light fixtures that hang from the soaring ceiling bring a soft glow to the voluminous main dining room—appointed with a stone fireplace—and the second floor boasts multiple private event rooms ready to accommodate up to 140 guests.
TRADITION MADE MODERN
Those who are wary of tasting octopus—or have tried it and found the texture to be unappealingly chewy—may become confirmed polipo enthusiasts after sampling this aquatic delicacy at Melt. Attentive care in cooking the char-grilled Mediterranean variety of octopus results in extreme, even luxurious, tenderness. A warm fingerling potato salad, splashed with red wine vinegar and lemon juice and complemented with capers and a fresh herb salad, completes the complex array of flavors in this well-rounded appetizer—which simply begs to be paired with a glass of pinot grigio. Looking for a dish to chase away the winter blues? For the ultimate in comfort on a chilly evening, tuck into a brimming bowl of savory papparelle, best enjoyed at a table by the flickering fireplace. Osso buco—veal shanks—are slow-cooked to fall-off-the-bone tenderness before being simmered into a luscious butter-finished ragu with tomatoes and garlic. Complementing this heart-warming amalgam of flavors are wide ribbons of housemade noodles, crowned with shaved Parmigiano. An impressive wine list delivers premium pairing options.
