Morello to thank dads with surprise sweets and more when they dine on Father’s Day
This Father’s Day, dads will be treated to Morello Italian Bistro’s new two-course prix fixe lunch menu, which will be offered seven days a week beginning Sunday, June 15 at the rustic Italian restaurant, located in the heart of Greenwich Avenue. Father’s Day serves as the launch of Morello’s prix-fixe lunch, available throughout the summer in addition to Morello’s traditional Italian and Mediterranean menu items.
Guests will be able to choose from two home-inspired Italian classics for $24 per person, including first course choices of:
- Pappa al pomodoro: crushed tomato soup with basil and Tuscan bread
- Vitello tonnato: sliced veal with parmesan, caper berries, arugula and a creamy tuna mayonnaise
Second course choices include:
- Fettuccine primavera: hand-rolled pasta with fava beans, peas, asparagus and fresh tomato tossed in an olive oil emulsion
- Beef involtini: beef stuffed with mozzarella and black olives with roasted potatoes in marinara
“Our prix fixe specials are a great lunchtime option whether taking a quick break from work or enjoying a leisurely lunch out on the patio with friends,” said Jimmy Branigan, general manager of Morello. “Our talented kitchen staff has created a menu of delicious dishes that are perfect for the summer months.”
Dads that join Morello on Father’s Day will also receive sweets prepared specially by pastry chef Amanda Atkinson and a card entitling them to a complimentary dessert on their next visit. “Many restaurants give out roses on Mother’s Day, so we wanted to do a little something extra for dads this Father’s Day,” added Branigan.
