Eastchester's Polpettina Homestyle Pizza Kitchen has already won Westchester Magazine’s Best New Restaurant of 2012. It also uses locally sourced, organic ingredients from neighboring Westchester farms. Now, owners Kyle Inserra and Mike Abruzese, who call the restaurant Polpettina because it means little meatball, have expanded their restaurants seating.
Thanks to Polpettina for sending us the following information about their expansion.
The wait is over for Lower Hudson Valley food lovers who have wished for more space at Polpettina Homestyle Pizza Kitchen, Westchester Magazine’s Best New Restaurant of 2012. Thanks to a recent expansion into the adjacent Polpettina Market, the restaurant now offers additional seating for its daily lunch and dinner services.
“Our customers have been tremendously supportive of us since we opened less than two years ago,” says Kyle Inserra, Polpettina’s co-owner and operations director. “We are thrilled that we can now seat them faster during peak times and more easily accommodate special events such as brewery talks, wine tastings, and parties.”
Known for its Neopolitan-style pizzas and innovative twists on favorite comfort foods, this Italian-influenced eatery prides itself on bringing locally sourced, primarily organic and seasonally available food to patrons at reasonable prices. Co-owner and executive chef Michael Abruzese explains, “We set out to create a restaurant we would want to come to on our days off – simple food made with excellent ingredients served in a laid-back atmosphere. And even with the new seating we have maintained the cozy feel that our customers love.”
Several new tables, in addition to bar seating, are found on the “market side,” where house-made products such as Polpettina’s signature pasta sauces as well as pastas, grains, Blue Bottle Coffee, Mast Brothers Chocolates, and other specialty items line shelves up to the pressed-tin ceiling. Beer aficionados can choose from an impressive selection of more than 100 craft brews – nearly two dozen of them local, including Polpettina's collaboration with local favorite Captain Lawrence Brewery.
Polpettina serves Italian-influenced cuisine featuring primarily organic, locally sourced ingredients – all within a comfortable atmosphere where service matters. Located at 102 Fisher Avenue in Eastchester, N.Y., Polpettina was honored as the Best New Restaurant for 2012 by Westchester Magazine.
