Saturday night was spent eating delicious food at Peppe’s Bistro formally known as Peppe’s Ristorante. Peppe’s recently got a face-lift and now offers a casual, fresh and modern atmosphere right here in the Pocono’s. (although I do have to say I miss the charm of the old world Italian style fine-dinning experience.) Peppe’s casual ambiance of having a brick oven pizza bar and a swanky lounge to sip your happy hour cocktails is alluring. What I love about Peppe’s is that you can attend in a casual style of jeans or dressed to the nines and still feel comfortable in the atmosphere.
Peppe’s also has entertainment on Saturday nights from 8-11pm in the Bistro Lounge. So you can order a scrumpious classic marguerite brick oven pizza and a nice big class of wine. Last night Erin McClelland Band was playing everything from Dave Matthews to Phillip Phillips. Check him out! He will be playing at Peppe’s Bistro again on March 15th.
So what was on the menu for me last night:
A nice big glass of Pinot Grigio, followed by my all time favorite zuppa de clams appetizer made in a plum tomato broth with basil and garlic! DELISH! Next up was the arugula salad with grilled steak prepared medium rare…. The house balsamic is to die for, especially when you ask for blue cheese crumbles on top! To round out my night I had an espresso and the molten chocolate lava cake! WOW!!!! Let’s just say I left happy and satisfied! 🙂
Overall, it was an excellent night out!
