Morello Bistro pouring new summer cocktails (recipes included) – Greenwich, CT

Drinks at Morello Bistro in Greenwich, CT

Starting from bottom left, then up, then over, then back down:  White Peach Margarita, Spiced Avema, Fiore Liz, Passionfruit Bellini, Morello Old Fashioned, and Morello Twist.  Photos provided by Morello Bistro, design by us. :)

One of the hotspots along Greeenwich Avenue is the perennial favorite, Morello Bistro.  We went for a great press dinner last year when we got to taste Chef Forrest Pasternack’s excellent food.  Although Forrest has left for Bailey’s Backyard, Kevin Garcia has taken the reins of this very popular spot. Chef Garcia graduated from Johnson & Wales University and has worked at Jean Georges Vongerichten’s Prime Steakhouse, Lucca, Lupa with Mario Batali, Del Posto, ‘Cesca, and Accademia di Vino.  That’s quite a resume, and now he has Morello Bistro to add to that list.

Chef Garcia is focusing Morello Bistro in on the regions of Rome, Tuscany, and Sicily.  And, as we approach summer, Forrest has changed up the menu using local ingredients and Oliver Flosse, Wine Director for MARC US (a restaurant group that owns Morello, A Voce and more), has changed up the cocktails.  We received some photos and recipes for some of the drinks that we’re excited to share with you.  And, we’ll present the recipes to you from bottom left, up, then across, then to the big box on the bottom.  While the recipes look pretty easy to put together, we’d just leave it to the experts at Morello, ya know? :)  Enjoy it inside or at one of their tables outside.  Drink up and enjoy:

    I love a good summer cocktail! The Fiore Liz sounds so tasty to me! I checked out the menu too…fried brussels. I’m adding them to the list. :)

      Maria, you’re too funny. :) We have to try those too, actually…sounds great. Brussels sprouts are very hard to resist when done right. And, the drinks…they just look awesome. :) Nice to catch up again!
