Located in the heart of downtown Ridgefield, TerraSole Ristorante is a product of Owner Pietro Polini’s culinary upbringing in Puglia, Italy. Pietro introduced his charming Italian restaurant in 2009 upon meticulously renovating its farmhouse building. TerraSole is framed in exposed wood beams, hardwood flooring, eclectic Italian artwork, and natural sunlight. An intimate bar and additional seating area is reminiscent of an Italian piazza and sidewalk café which opens up onto a delightful boutique lined neighborhood. A private garden patio seats 50, adding to the 65-seat main dining room.
TerraSole’s kitchen is led by Executive Chef Eugene Jerome, formerly of Siena Ristorante in Stamford and Ristorante DiSopra in Greenwich. Together, he and Pietro create TerraSole’s extensive weekly specials and seasonal menus. Inn addition to house made pasta and desserts, domestic and imported specialty ingredients are sourced from such quality producers as; Salumeria Biellese and Murray’s Cheese in New York; Chicago’s Allen Brothers for aged steaks; Le Veneziane gluten free pasta imported from Italy; market fresh fish from New England fishermen; and locally grown produce whenever possible. Pietro also sources and imports his own olive oil, which is bottled under a private label and sold in the restaurant.
TerraSole boasts an impressive, mostly Italian varietal wine program with more than 200 wines by the bottle and 20 exceptional wines offered by the glass. House made seasonal 'cello is a customer favorite with such flavors as, limoncello, meloncello, and espresso chocolate-cello. Cocktails are crafted using fresh squeezed juices and season produce.
TerraSole is thrilled to call Ridgefield home. The Polini family looks forward to having you at their table.
This NYC historical landmark in the heart of the Theatre District has been serving up suds and down home pub food since 1892, surviving prohibition by renting the front of its then Rockefeller Center faÃ§ade to Greek florists, while the Hurley brothers ran a speak-easy in back.
You might not find dragon meat on the menu, but you'll find pretty much anything else that walks, swims or flies, cooked up in more ways than there are people in the Guangdong province. This Midtown mainstay has a 20-year history of delivering mouth-watering and Cantonese style chow.
The world's a big, big stage for this notorious deli smack in the middle of the theatre district, infamously famous for its over-the-top corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, chopped liver, blintzes, celebrities, salami, smoked fish and New York's finest cheesecake.
