Winter hath begun, and while snowflakes, rain drops and blustery winds may not have hit your town yet, go ahead and pull out that new coat and cable knit scarf and head over to The Restaurant at Ponte for some soul-warming, super-comforting dishes.  You may know that our menus change with the seasons.  With the new season upon us, there is no shortage of pizzas, appetizers, pastas and desserts to take the chill off:

Charcuterie and Cheese Appetizer: Chef-made giardiniera (pickled vegetables), cured meats, warm olives, spicy mustards and nuts, blue and brie cheese and bacon-wrapped dates will kick your body temp up a couple of notches.  Try it with Graciela or Super T.

Duck and Cranberry Wood-Fired Pizza: We bake our pizzas in a wood-burning oven that is heated using reclaimed grape wood from our vineyards.  This savory pizza includes mango-infused duck breast, bacon, mozzarella and green onion.  It’s amazing with Syrah.

Seafood Chowder: If you’re a seafood lover, this one is for you – a creamy concoction of clams, mussels, calamari, shrimp, scallops, fish, fingerling potatoes, corn and red chili tomato broth. Try it with Fiorella.

Mascarpone Pillows: It’s like a big, warm hug served in a big bowl!  Soft dumplings made of ricotta, parmigiano reggiano and mozzarella cheese are dressed in marinara sauce.  Try with Barbera.

Warm Spinach and Portabella Salad topped with Flat Iron Steak: Dried cranberries, toasted hazelnuts, shaved red onion, blue cheese, apple cider and pancetta vinaigrette.
Try with Super T.

Pulled Pork Sandwich: Slow-roasted pork, a peppered fried egg, crispy onions, spicy wilted cabbage and provolone creamed cheese on an Amish flour-dusted roll.  Ahhh.  Try it with Vermentino.
