Opening Tonight: Tredici Enoteca

New Mediterranean-style restaurant and wine bar opens in Midtown Village tonight.

Tonight, the owners of Zavino in Midtown Village and University City debut the opening of another restaurant right across the street.

Greg Dodge of Zavino Hospitality Group introduces Tredici Enoteca at 13th and Sansom Streets, across from its sister restaurant. The Enoteca, which means “wine repository,” will serve Mediterranean-style cuisine with a focus on an affordable and diverse Italian wine bar.

The drink selection provides premium wines by the bottle, glass, or through the cruvient, a six-bottle preserving system at the bar. Similar to a draft system, the wines will be kept fresh, temperature controlled and served by the glass.

With a large variety of Sauvignon Blanc’s, Pinot Noir’s and Italian blends, the wine program offers two separate pour choices, a half glass (3.17oz) or full glass (6.34oz), incase you just want to do some taste-testing.

The bar menu also includes signature cocktails and a variety of beers including, Italian golden ale’s and French ciders.

Executive Chef Carlos Aparicio leads the kitchen in preparing a Mediterranean-style menu inspired by some Italian flavors. With a large amount of vegetable-driven dishes, the menu also includes meat, fish, pasta and a variety of small plates like Moroccan Spice Ribs and Crab Stuffed Peppers with Verde Sauce.

They also offer a raw bar and Mediterranean Tasting Board for $17 which includes hummus, vegetables, tuscan bread and a special falafel made from Dodge’s wife Emily’s famous home-made recipe.

Some of the larger entrees include, Lasagna Verde with BologneseSpinach Gnocchi with butternut squash, sage and brown butter, and Pork Milanese with apple and arugula salad.

Dinner will be served Monday-Sunday from 4pm-10pm.

For the bubbly lover, throughout the entire month of December, both Zavino locations and Tredici Enoteca will be toasting their “Champagne Campaign.” Moët Brut and Veuve Rosé will be offered for $12-14 a glass and $1 of every purchase will be donated to the National MS Society.
