Inaugural Zeppoleme Wine Dinner a Wicked Good Time – Port Chester, NY

31 Jan

Lots of Friends at Zeppoleme Dinner

Things don’t get much better in life than having good friends, good food, and good wine all together in one perfect spot.  And that’s exactly how it went down yesterday, 1/30, at Zeppoleme in Port Chester, NY.  This was, perhaps, one of the most fun events that we’ve been to in a long time, so we were very happy and proud to be a part of it.  Let’s take you through each course.  Oh, and if you were one of the bums who missed this event, Zeppoleme plans to have more, so don’t worry!

Hearty Tuscan Tomato Soup at Zeppoleme in Port Chester, NY

The Hearty Tuscan Tomato Soup was excellent, thawing us out nicely.  It was tangy, a tad bit sweet, and had nice chunks of veggies.  Marc and Robert of Zeppoleme paired this with a nicely balanced “Truth or Consequences” Riesling which was so easy going down.

Zeppoleme + OmNomCT team up for four course wine dinner on 1/30

8 Jan

 

Zeppole.  Doesn’t that word instantly make you smile and drool at the same time? Yes, those fried pillowy puffs of doughy goodness that make you feel like a kid again, are the things that dreams are made of.

It’s because of that, that we’re proud and excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Zeppoleme of Port Chester for an exciting, “A Night out with OmNomCT and Friends” event on 1/30 at 7 pm.  You’ll have a chance to meet and talk with both of us and the awesome Zeppoleme owners Marc Tessitore (he also owns Nessa next door) and Robert Squeri as we all chow down on some killer good food and drink some delicious wine.

If you haven’t had the chance to eat at this awesome restaurant that we have raved about (and The New York Times too), then you MUST get in on this dinner on 1/30 starting at 7 pm.  There will be enough food and wine to feed an army of OmNomivores for just $29 + tax and tip.  Now that’s a deal!  Call them up at (914) 481-5900 to make your reservation and get your spot…only about 25 seats, get calling!

We hope to see you there!

Move over Cronut™, Meet the Oreo Zeppole

Oreo Zeppole at Zeppoleme in Port Chester, NY

We knew that when we first saw Zeppoleme getting ready to open that we were in for trouble.  After having eaten there many times, we just can’t get enough of their paninis…and their zeppole of course.  Normally, we won’t post about a restaurant’s food again after already writing a review, but our visit to Zeppoleme on Sunday is worthy, oh so worthy!

As if their zeppole and dipping sauces weren’t crack enough, they recently created special Oreo Zeppole.  We’re talking about freshly made zeppole mixed in with chunks of delicate Oreo (think similar flavor and texture to deep-fried Oreos).  To pull the whole dish together they serve them with a thick buttercream dipping sauce on the side.  So, as you dip the zeppole, make sure to cover only half.  That gives you 24 bites, rather than just 12.  Each zeppola is amazing, so warm, so fluffy, so moist, and so amazingly like an Oreo.  But, it’s more like Heisenberg level Oreo flavor.  The pure stuff, the real deal.  A dozen of the Oreo Zeppole is $15 (you can only buy a dozen at this point) or a regular dozen is $10 and comes with three dipping sauces of your choice.  But, are you really going to have the regular zeppole when you have the option to devour Oreo Zeppole?  

They also are planning Pumpkin Zeppole and even more special flavors that will go along with the seasons and holidays.  For more info on Zeppoleme, check out our review and their site.

Oh Dio Mio, Zeppoleme! Killer Coffee, Sandwiches, Zeppole + More in Port Chester, NY

18 Jun

Aye, paisanos, have we got a new spot for you to check out! We’re talking ’bout Zeppoleme, right on Main Street in Port Chester, walking distance from our part of Greenwich (uh oh, we’re in trouble). Ever since we saw the sign a few months ago, we’ve been dreaming about the zeppoles we’d enjoy on, oh, say EVERY Sunday morning, starting with this past Sunday when they opened up shop!

Lucky for Kristien’s parents, they just so happened to be in town when they opened…which was the perfect way to round out our weekend of gorging. See just two nights before we had taken the rents out for dinner at Bar Sugo and feasted like the good Italians we are.  But back to Zeppoleme

Immediately, we were happy to see how cute and cozy the interior is. Lots of dark wood tables and rustic tones make Zeppoleme chill, relaxing, and comfortable. Plus, if you’re feeling like it would be nice to eat outside, check out their pretty outdoor garden dining that they share with sister restaurant Nessa next door. Eh, you gonna get to the food? Psshhhh, here are the basics:

Zeppoleme Brings Coffee, Panini, and Zeppole to Port Chester, NY

 Modern zeppole at Zeppoleme in Port Chester, NY

Update:  Zeppoleme is now open.  Please check out our review! 

Zeppole are perhaps one of the greatest gifts given to humanity, just one rung below fire and internet memes. Dough balls, deep fried, then sprinkled with sugar. They bring back memories of Dan sitting around his grandma’s table, devouring zeppola (the singular form of course) after zeppola, making sure to rub in more powdered sugar all over.   Or, it’s hard to forget the countless Italian feasts that we’ve been to with the scent of zeppole and sausage in the air.  Yeah, it’s awesome to be Italian…or to be married to one, or to be dating one, or to know one, or to pretend to be one.

The bar and kitchen at Zeppoleme in Port Chester, NYAll this talk of zeppole is killing us…you hungry yet? Don’t worry! Getting zeppole will be a whole helluva lot easier starting in a few weeks at Zeppoleme (same owners of Nessa next door) in Port Chester, just over the border of Greenwich. First off, you will be able to get some sweet fried dough in two forms:

  1. Classic:  the original, sprinkled with your choice of powdered sugar, granulated sugar, and/or cinnamon
  2. Modern:  they take the original, then fold in ricotta, making it light and fluffy

Then you’ll want to dip these in one of their four sauces:
