Fish, fish and more fish! But we’re certainly not complaining.
Especially not after drooling over the pictures of Il Pittore chef Chris Painter’s addition to our summer recipe roundup. Down the shore, you’re likely to get the freshest seafood straight off the boat. So why not take advantage of it? Painter’s Flukin’ Foil sounds like something to try after a long day of fishing, or even just sunning on the beach. Extra kudos to those who use their own catch, but Jersey has some pretty good fish markets in case you weren’t so lucky with your line.
Starting this week until the end of the summer, Il Pittore will introduce a new menu dedicated to the hot season and all of its offerings. Chef Chris Painter, who was just awarded Best Chef by Philly Mag’s Reader Poll, is taking advantage of the summertime produce in his Pennsylvania and New Jersey Farmers’ Menu. Using products from Green Meadow Farms in Lancaster and other local PA and NJ farmers, Painter will create a 4-course tasting menu.
Guests will start with a Chilled Cucumber Soup, followed by Pennsylvania Pride Beef Ravioli (see picture), Striped Bass, and, to finish it all off, Peach Upside-Down Cake.
Guests are encouraged to make early reservations because each night, there are only 20 available dinners. The menu is priced at $45.
