The most beautiful, delicious dinner in Little Italy for Restaurant Week is at Il Cortile!

It's time to light up your night and look up at the stars and look down at the incredible culinary feats by the one and only Il Cortile by owner Sal Esposito for this restaurant week! Peachy and Sal:
You'd be remiss not to start off your night with a splendid Amarone!  This wine variety in particular is specifically coveted at Il Cortile, and its versatility ensures that it pairs wonderfully with all of your dining options.  During Restaurant Week, the three-course dinner is $60 and includes an appetizer, entree and dessert.  Here is what Peachy chose!
The Caprese is a classic that you cannot go wrong with any time of year!  And the freshness of that mozzarella with ripe tomato and fragrant basil seals the deal of flavor, further emblazoned beautifully with balsamic and evoo.  It beckons you in to the courtyard because that is exactly what Il Cortile means in Italian.
If you have not had Pollo Con Gamberi Alla Francese at Il Cortile, you are not living your best life this winter!  The captivating breast of chicken fabulously dipped in egg batter and pan fried with white wine, butter and lemon joins some shrimp with comforting roasted red potatoes that also come to the party on a plate.  The piping hot morsels of deliciousness will silence even the chattiest!
In the world according to Peachy Deegan, there are underrated Italian desserts and Zabaglione is a totally underrated dessert!  In our opinion it is the Ferrari of Custard.  It deserves more attention so it steps into our spotlight to greet you with fresh fruit-blueberries and blackberries were seasonal the night we visited-and the creamy ecstasy will make your night a happy one at Il Cortile, sealing the dinner deal!
