A Review of Tarry Lodge, in New Haven http://theshopsatyale.com/a-review-of-tarry-lodge-in-new-haven/ http://theshopsatyale.com/a-review-of-tarry-lodge-in-new-haven/#comments Wed, 20 May 2015 16:21:22 +0000 http://theshopsatyale.com/?p=6033 The metro area has few culinary A-listers to rival Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich — the restaurant-world power duo behind Manhattan venues like Babbo (winner of multiple James Beard Awards), the Michelin-starred Casa Mono, and more than a dozen other American eateries.

And given how well their first two forays into the region have been received (the first Tarry Lodge enoteca and pizzeria made its debut in Port Chester, N.Y., in 2009, the second in Westport, Conn., in 2011), they could easily have rested on their laurels. But the newest incarnation, which opened in downtown New Haven last fall, proves they are still upping their game. This Tarry Lodge is the best one yet.

Some of the perks at this particular location are strictly architectural. The space, set just a few blocks from Yale’s Old Campus in a university-owned building, is much smaller than the first two — with just a single, 75-seat dining room where high ceilings and large front windows make it feel airy without sacrificing coziness. This is the first outpost to be outfitted with acoustic tiles, according to Nancy Selzer, a managing partner for the three Tarry Lodges with Mr. Batali, Mr. Bastianich and Andy Nusser, the executive chef. (Translation: It is the first where you can actually hear what your tablemates are saying.)

What sets this iteration apart, though, is the way it has been specially adapted for its local clientele. As at the other locations, the rustic, seasonal Italian menu here encompasses both casual fare — like the 12-inch Neapolitan-style pizzas, topped with salumi and house-made cheeses, and served smoking hot from the oak-fired Mugnaini oven — and more elegant dishes, like fresh-made pastas, grilled meats and seafood.

“We really strive to be all things to all people,” Ms. Selzer said in a phone interview after my visits. “We try to cater to people with refined palates, who want a beautiful meal and a nice big Barolo to go with it. But we also want to be a great neighborhood place for takeout pizza.”

This approach is, naturally, a good fit for the university crowd. In an inspired stroke, Mr. Batali and his partners have taken the foot-in-each-camp idea even further here by offering two main-course menu sections geared for “professori” and “studenti.” The former includes robust, higher-priced options like a Creekstone hanger steak and a crisp-skinned roasted whole branzino; the latter a lineup of budget-friendly choices like a hearty baked vegetarian giambotta (stew), heritage pork meatballs and a gooey porchetta calzone.

Happily, just about every dish my companions and I tried over two visits — during which we ordered from every part of the menu — was outstanding. On a busy weekend night, we enjoyed several of the more upscale preparations, including a tender, flaky pan-roasted salmon filet accompanied by lightly charred rapini and cherry tomatoes that burst at the touch of a fork; a bowl of squid-ink fettuccine flecked with juicy grilled rock shrimp and cubes of spicy chorizo; and a plate of dainty sweet pea and ricotta ravioli, dressed with lemon and Grana Padano and strewn with bright-green pea shoots. All of these, as well as excellent recommendations of wine by the glass, were proffered by a server so attentive that one of my friends whispered, “Do you think she knows you’re a reviewer?”

A later lunchtime visit, during which my husband and I tried some of the more modestly priced comfort foods, was just as satisfying. A pizza stippled with creamy burrata and ribbons of pancetta, then drizzled with chili oil, was so delicious that we bickered over the last slice. Tucking into the aforementioned calzone, a bomb stuffed with moist roasted pork, mozzarella, grilled onions and fire-roasted peppers, I could have sworn I heard my husband mutter, “I never ate like this when I was a student!”

Faculty- and student-themed offerings aside, the chef-d’oeuvre of this Tarry Lodge may well be its dessert menu. Featuring a mix-and-match list of house-made soft ice cream flavors (Valrhona chocolate, olive oil) and esoteric toppings (fennel pollen, salted Marcona almonds, pomegranate syrup), it playfully bridges the divide between delicacy and good old-fashioned gluttony. Both the tuition-saddled and the tenured should leave equally happy.

Pizzas plus Picassos in New Haven http://theshopsatyale.com/pizzas-plus-picassos-in-new-haven-2/ http://theshopsatyale.com/pizzas-plus-picassos-in-new-haven-2/#comments Wed, 20 May 2015 16:10:26 +0000 http://theshopsatyale.com/?p=6030 By Diane Bair and Pamela Wright

“I only do Pilates so I can eat pizza,” a wise woman once said.

Arguably, there’s no better place to indulge than New Haven. The city had five pizzas on The Daily Meal’s 2014 list of America’s best pizzas, and rumor has it that top-ranked Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana is looking for real estate around Boston. So this would be a good opportunity to see whether Pepe’s famous white clam pizza really is all that, or if you prefer Sally’s Apizza (No. 5, the tomato pie, no cheese), or No. 12, Modern Apizza’s Italian Bomb. The other two New Haven pizzerias that made the cut were BAR (mashed potato and bacon pie, No. 24) and Zuppardi’s (the Special, with mozzarella, mushrooms, sausage, and marinara, No. 50). For the record, Boston had two pies on the list, Santarpio’s (No. 15, mozzarella, sausage, and garlic) and Regina (No. 29, melanzane.)

Even if you’re not into carb loading, you’ll find a lot to like in New Haven, Connecticut’s second-largest city and home to Yale University. The museums and theaters are first-rate, the campus is handsome, and the food scene (even if you skip pizza) is vibrant — all good reasons to cosy up to Harvard’s major rival. And here’s one more good reason: from June 12-27, the city hosts the 20th annual International Festival of Arts & Ideas (www.artidea.org), a 15-day extravaganza of performances and conversations featuring artists (including Darlene Love, Mark Morris Dance Group, and Lucinda Williams) from around the world. More than 80 percent of the festival events are free.

EAT

Achieve pizza nirvana at Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana (157 Wooster St. and other locations, 203-865-5762, www.pepespizzeria.com, large pie from $17). It’s practically the law to order the famous white clam pizza with grated Parmesan, olive oil, garlic, and oregano. Pepe’s is a local institution, as is Louis’ Lunch (261-263 Crown St., 203-562-5507, www.louislunch.com; $6), which claims to be the birthplace of the hamburger. Founded in 1898 by Louis Lassen, who slapped some ground meat on bread for a customer in a hurry, as the story goes, this tiny spot is now helmed by great-grandson Jeff. Others may make the “first burger” claim, but you can’t dispute the tastiness of these “hamburger sandwiches.” Made from a blend of five varieties of meat, they’re cooked to order on the original upright broilers, topped with a sharp cheddar cheese spread and served on toast, just the way Louis did it. The Travel Channel named it one of “the tastiest places to chow down in America.” Get your veg on at Claire’s Corner Copia (1000 Chapel St., 203-562-3888, www.clairescornercopia.com; from $5.95), a kosher vegetarian organic eatery that’s been around since 1975.

The place is open all day, but brunch rules, especially her tantalizing baked goods. Hearty deliciousness reigns at Consiglio’s Restaurant (165 Wooster St., 203-865-4489, www.consiglios.com; entrees from $17), a mainstay for Southern Italian cooking. Fuel up with hand-rolled cavatelli, veal saltimbocca, eggplant rollatini, and other classic dishes, served with a friendly, old school vibe. Make it an eating/shopping two-fer at Caseus Fromagerie Bistro (93 Whitney Ave., 203-624-3373, www.caseusnewhaven.com), a one-off shop featuring more than 100 different cheeses and specialty foods from small-batch producers.

DURING THE DAY

Get into the “Boola boola” spirit on a Yale University Campus Tour (Mead Visitor Center, 149 Elm St., Mon-Fri 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sat-Sun 1:30 p.m., http://visitorcenter.yale.edu, free), lasting about an hour and 20 minutes and led by a Yale undergrad. You’ll want to spend some time exploring Yale’s museums, especially the Peabody Museum of Natural History (170 Whitney Ave., 203-432-5050, www.peabody.yale.edu, $9), known for its Great Hall (dinosaurs!) and exhibits dedicated to mammal evolution, Native American cultures, Connecticut birds, and more. The Yale University Art Gallery (1111 Chapel St., 203-432-0600, www.artgallery.yale.edu, free) is the oldest college art museum in the country, and holds more than 200,000 pieces. Current shows feature James Abbott McNeill Whistler and Romantic Art from 1760-1860. Another option: the New Haven Museum (114 Whitney Ave., 203-562-4183, www.newhavenmuseum.org , $4; on the first Sunday of the month, free from 1-4 p.m.) focuses on local art, history, and culture spanning 375 years.

Even nonshoppers appreciate the combination of prose and pastries at Atticus Bookstore & Cafe (1082 Chapel St.), a Yale hangout. To encounter more retail temptation, meander down York Street to Broadway. More than 50 shops line the streets, from usual suspects like Urban Outfitters to Fashionista Vintage & Variety (93 Whitney Ave.) for thrift couture, and English Building Market (839 Chapel St.), which bills itself as a “vintage department store.” Meanwhile, Lesley Roy (845 Whalley Ave.) sells her signature lines of ceramic and glass tableware, made on site. Looking for crafting inspiration? Check out Eco Works (open 2d and 4th Saturdays of the month, 134 Haven St., 2d floor, 203-675-8812; www.ecoworksct.org), where the motto is “garbage can be fun.” They sell industrial scraps, such as pieces of Corian, old maps, leftover fabric, depending on what’s been donated — to teachers and artists for creative reuse.

AFTER DARK

New Haven is home to three professional theater companies. The 1,600-seat Shubert Theater (247 College St., 203-562-5666; www.shubert.com), celebrates 100 years as a cultural hub of the city, hosting plays, musicals, opera, and dance. On the waterfront, the Tony Award-winning Long Wharf Theater (222 Sargent Dr., 203-787-4282; www.longwharf.org) boasts more than 30 productions that have transferred to Broadway or off-Broadway, including “Wit” and “The Gin Game.” Meryl Streep is among the many luminaries who got a start at the Yale Repertory Theatre (September-May, 1120 Chapel St., 203-432-1234, www.yalerep.org), affiliated with the Yale School of Drama, where eight productions have received Tony awards after going from here to Broadway.

It’s basically a small room with a stage, but the good acoustics, cheap drinks, and live acts draw music lovers to Café Nine (250 State St., 203-789-8281, www.cafenine.com, sometimes a cover charge of $5 and up, sometimes not.) It feels dive-y, but it’s clean, and you won’t feel out of place. Then again, maybe you want a swanky setting and a sexy cocktail. New Haven’s go-to spot for that would be 116 Crown (116 Crown St., 203-777-3116, www.116crown.com), a sleek and gorgeous space with master mixologists and an intriguing tapas menu.

NEW HAVENis about 150 miles southwest of Boston. For information, visit www.visitinewhaven.com or www.infonewhaven.com.

WAVE Draws From Burbs & Beyond http://theshopsatyale.com/wave-draws-from-burbs-beyond/ http://theshopsatyale.com/wave-draws-from-burbs-beyond/#comments Tue, 12 May 2015 00:16:53 +0000 http://theshopsatyale.com/?p=6018 By 

Charlotte Block walked into WAVE on Chapel Street downtown the other day with her friend Barbara.

“Did I buy this necklace here?” Block immediately asked the sales people.

Jessica French walked up and said she recognized the style, then asked if Block paid in credit. WAVE keeps an archive of all credit transactions, so within a few minutes, French was able to give her an answer.

“Charlotte Block, necklace transaction, 2006,” said French.

 

For more than 10 years, Block has visited New Haven from Newington with her friend Barbara of Trumbull twice a year for each other’s birthdays. The friends typically start at Ann Taylor on Chapel and stop in each boutique that catch their eye until they make their way to the Yale Bookstore. Block said the route takes about two hours.

Both women were good friends in high school and reconnected about 20 years ago. They shopped in April for Block’s birthday. For Block’s birthday in 2006, she said, she remembered seeing the necklace in the display case.

“It was a birthday present to myself,” said Block. “It was just something I took one look at and it was like: ‘Charlotte, please buy me.’”

In 1985, Phyllis Satin opened up WAVE: A Gallery in New Haven on College Street before it relocated to its current spot on Chapel Street, just down the road from the Yale University Art Gallery.

WAVE sells all kinds of collector’s items and gifts for a wide range of customers and price ranges. The store is mainly focused on its selection of artisan as well as low-end jewelry, but it also sells greeting cards, chocolates, housewares, décor, soaps, silverware, and various other knacks for any occasion. Even the mirrors hanging all around the store can be purchased.

WAVE’s customers reflect the shop’s colorful character.

The boutique sells well-known jewelry brands like Pandora and Alex and Ani. Alex and Ani, a popular brand for stacking bracelets, recently left its independent location on York Street to sell its collection exclusively downtown at WAVE, attracting different and new customers to the shop.

Other artists and brands selling work at WAVE include Silver Seasons, Lenny & Eva, Bong Sang Cho, and So Young Park.

Each customer comes to WAVE for a different end product, but the common ground between them is the desire to walk away with unique product, whether it be for themselves, their homes, or their loved ones.

“There’s something in here for everyone,” said salesperson Jessica French. “We range from 80-cent chocolates to a necklace for $3,000.”

 

Katy Lynch came to WAVE to get herself a new pair of Pandora earrings. She usually stops by to check out their clearance, which she says always has a good selection. WAVE has always sold Pandora, but this is Lynch’s first purchase from the brand.

Damon Loftis, of Branford, came to WAVE to find a gift for his partner. He purchased a bracelet from the brand UNO de 50, which is a higher-end label. Most of their jewelry pieces retail over $100, according to their website. Lotfis was recommended by an associate at TD Bank.

Bonnie Garnish came to WAVE to fix a high-end necklace she got for her daughter. Garnish said she is a “long-time buyer” at WAVE.

Christina Fortier, of Naugatuck, came to New Haven to get lunch with her daughter who is a student at Albertus Magnus College. After getting lunch, they both decided to shop around the Shops at Yale. They stopped in WAVE to update their collection of Alex and Ani bracelets.

Mussels at Harvest

Step down off bustling Chapel Street and into the former home of the beloved Italian restaurant Scoozi, and you will find yourself in the newest (and arguably most delicious) addition to the New Haven dining scene—Harvest Wine Bar & Restaurant—the fifth restaurant by growing Connecticut dining brand and family affair, the JS Restaurant Group.

Brothers Vicente and Kleber and sister Nube Siguenza own CAVA Wine Bar & Restaurant in New Canaan, 55 Wine Bar & Restaurant in Fairfield, SCENA Wine Bar & Restaurant in Darien, the first Harvest Wine Bar & Restaurant in Greenwich and now Harvest’s second location in New Haven.

Vicente Siguenza says it was Yale University Properties that reached out to see if they were interested in expanding to New Haven. They were, and now local foodies in a city where fine food is seemingly everywere are rejoicing about the latest option.

The restaurant, which is actually below street level, occupies an L-shaped room with a long wooden bar and high-top tables filling one section and a more secluded dining room sitting opposite. Large glass walls look out onto an immense patio and beyond that the wide stairs up to the street. The feel here is distinctly modern with wooden walls and unadorned tables and chairs in shades of chocolate and burnt umber.

(The interior of the New Haven Harvest resembles the Greenwich restaurant, pictured above.)

At Harvest, like all other JS Restaurant Group properties, the emphasis is on farm fresh food. Ingredients are locally sourced, with most meats and produce coming from farms in upstate New York, Gilbertie’s Herb Garden in Easton and their own small farm in Weston. Dishes are designed around what’s in season—a dining ethos of the Siguenza family since moving to America from Ecuador in the early 1990s.

Harvest in Greenwich Gets an ‘Excellent’ Rating from the New York Times

“Ever since I moved to this country I’ve always grown something in my backyard,” says Vicente. “You can tell the difference because it is huge.”

Chef Gustave Christman III is in charge at Harvest New Haven, crafting his interpretation of the brand’s signature dishes (75 percent of the menu remains the same from Greenwich) and weekly specials. He shares the Siguenza family’s farm-forward style and the result is a winning culinary marriage.

Take, for instance, the wood grilled organic salmon (above) we enjoyed on a recent visit, served alongside fingerling potatoes and baby carrots with roasted baby beet vinaigrette. Everyone in our party commented on how moist the fish was and how well the sauce paired. 

The butternut squash ravioli was decadently creamy without being too sweet, and the wood grilled veal chop was satisfying, sitting atop a bed of creamy spinach.

However, the true winner among the entrées (agreed upon by everyone) was a fish dish on the specials menu. It was supposed to feature halibut, but was replaced with sole at last minute. The change was perhaps for the better. Two fish filets were piled on top a bed of a creamy well-seasoned risotto with greens on the side.

Between the Snack and Shares menu and the Starters menu, a meal could easily be made from appetizers alone. The butcher board comes piled with seven different meats and treats, including a memorable chicken liver mousse. Cheese boards are customizable depending on how many you’d like to sample.

Don’t miss the deliciously creamy short rib mac & cheese with Cabot white cheddar off the Snacks and Shares menu, or the pear and endive salad off the Starters menu. Spiced pecans and Manchego cheese cut the sweetness of the raspberry vinaigrette in just the right way. On our visit, we enjoyed a risotto tater tot appetizer served with a creamy cheese sauce—a reminder to never overlook the specials.

Brunch and lunch menus boast copious options too, some repeated at dinner and others exclusive to the earlier hours of the day. All of the best regions are represented on Harvest’s wine list, and their custom cocktails, like the Harvest Moon Shine, which mixes American Harvest vodka infused with fresh pineapple, Chambord and sour mix, are definitely worth a try. 

It’s fair to say the Siguenzas have struck gold again and with this second Harvest location, open only a few months, and things will only get even better from here.
