A spinoff of Pizza & Brew restaurant in Scarsdale, the eatery by John Racanelli brings basic Italian American fare to Yonkers.

In launching the second spin-off of his father’s longstanding and common Pizza & Brew restaurant, John Racanelli set out to generate an “approachable Italian American eatery that would be accessible to all.” In other text: “Not so significantly a position to dine but a spot to take in,” clarifies Racanelli of First Generation Hospitality, which has owned and operated Scarsdale’s Pizza & Brew since 1974, plus the a lot more latest By means of Forno Wooden Fired Pizza & Vinoteca, also in Scarsdale, and now, Public Pizza Italian Cafe & Bar in Yonkers’ Ridge Hill. With regular, envisioned Italian comfort classics served facet by side with not-so-envisioned, normal American fare “simply ready with good quality components in outsized parts,” Racanelli says, “this is a area the place you could try to eat each individual working day.”

Public Pizza opened in mid-February but shut a thirty day period afterwards, when COVID shuttered Ridge Hill. An early-July 2nd grand opening, of sorts, authorized a different possibility to showcase a vibe that is distinctly upscale and up-to-the-moment, with an unmistakable down-property, laid-again come to feel. “The variety of shades in the inside is to convey a emotion of modernism,” says Racanelli, “with the comfort and familiarity you get from a booth.” Undoubtedly, a nostalgic nod to his dad’s first concept.

This sort of a uniquely blended environment pairs effectively with a menu that mixes up regular Italian favorites, like New York-style pizza, fried calamari, ricotta-dolloped meatballs and spaghetti, hen parm, and mountainous zuppa di pesce, with an elevated burger on a brioche bun with fried egg, avocado, and sweet potato fries spicy mango wings, strip steak, paninis, and creative salads. A glass of Chianti or, extra likely for the hip locale, a seasonal craft cocktail washes it all down. “So many people today are cooking considerably less and considerably less these times we wished to develop an intensive menu you could enjoy a few instances a week and under no circumstances get bored,” Racanelli claims.

The bulk (90%) of the choices, which include appetizers and sandwiches, are served solo or spouse and children-fashion, and though the tiramisu (home-produced, each day) is for a person, it can be very easily shared by 3. “Homestyle Italian American cooking and taking in, that’s the way I was lifted,” suggests Racanelli, “and that’s what I want to deliver to the Ridge Hill community.”
