Knowing family dinners are so important, time is precious and dollars are dear, No. 246 Chef Drew Belline has drawn up a special family style supper menu for early diners. On Monday through Thursday evenings, diners seated between 5 - 6:30 p.m. can order a four-course meal served family style (with the exception of the entrée) for $18 for adults and $6 for children 12 and under.
The Italian-inspired menu begins with toast with local roasted sweet peppers, local basil, shaved heirloom garlic, EVOO and sea salt, and a salad of local greens with house-dried oregano vinaigrette, pepperoncinis, small tomatoes, shaved local red onions and feta. Choose one pasta entrée per person: tagliatelle carbonara with bacon, local herbs and Parmesan; spaghetti and meatball with Parmesan, San Marzano and basil; squid ink tagliatini with Bemis and James bottarga, bread crumbs, chilies and mint; or spaghetti with arugula, basil and almond pesto. Tiny, doughnut-like zeppole with anise sugar is a classic dessert. The children's menu includes spaghetti with meatball, spaghetti with butter and cheese pizza.
