On July 24, Elisabetta’s Ristorante, Bar and Pizzeria opened on Delray’s Atlantic Avenue, where 32 East ran for years. This is the newest venue from the Big Time Restaurant Group, which owns a lot of popular restaurants: Louie Bossi, City Cellar, Big City Tavern, Grease Burger, Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila, City Oyster & Sushi Bar, and the coming-soon Barrio Sangria Bar in Rosemary Square (formerly CityPlace).
This is a big, two-story venue, with a balcony that overlooks Old School Square. The restaurant is headed by corporate Culinary Director Lisabet Summa and Chef Partner Louie Bossi. It’s decorated in a fairly lavish Italian style that includes a gelato bar made of Calacatta marble, a Neapolitan pizza oven, 22-seat private dining room, custom mural, and lots of classy details.
The menu will have dry-aged steaks, seafood, chicken, salads and pasta dishes, of course. Plus the pizzas in many combinations. Serving lunch and dinner daily, brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
