Meet Me at the Med
Fine dining in Alpine is as close as Mediterraneo’s Italian Bistro. The Croce family has been serving Alpine delicious family recipes for over twenty years and have grown to be a favorite place to meet for an afternoon pick-me-up, a luxurious dinner, or a Sunday Brunch!
Mediterraneo’s (1347 Tavern Road) is not your average “Italian place”. The recipes have been developed by the family, handed down from generation to generation.
Beginning with Sunday Brunch, the restaurant does offer all the usual fare, such as omelets, pancakes, waffles, French toast and even, blueberry French toast. However, it is when you get into their signature dishes that the adventure of your pallet begins. One may want to try their ITALIAN BAKED EGGS. Imagine baked eggs served with Marinara, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella on top of their signature ranch potatoes and Italian sausage. Or try their AHI BENEDICT; poached eggs with sesame seared Ahi, a Hawaiian roll and sweet chili sauce. If these two tantalizing brunch choices don’t tempt you, there is a Smoked Salmon Croissant, a
Breakfast Wrap or a Frittata. All of these pair very well with a refreshing Mimosa.
The lunch menu is just as appetizing with a choice of twelve different Antipasta offerings, including a BRUSCHETTA AL POMODORO which is Roma tomatoes, garlic, basil, oregano
and extra virgin olive oil on garlic crostini, or maybe a CARPACCIO DI MANZO; thinly sliced beef tenderloin with arugula, capers, shaved Parmesan cheese and extra virgin
If you prefer, on the Specialty menu, there is the MED WRAP: grilled chicken, sundried tomatoes, olives, balsamic vinaigrette and garlic aioli wrapped in a garlic tortilla or the BISTRO BURGER: lean ground beef, mozzarella cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions and garlic aioli, plus four other mouth-watering dishes to tempt you.
Dinner and dessert will keep you coming back! There are eight specialty salads to choose from, any of which you may add chicken or shrimp to, for a small fee. There are twelve different savory pasta dishes to enjoy, five different distinctive pizzas to choose from, and an amazing assortment of crafted desserts that you won’t want to pass up!
If you want to enjoy time with a group of friends, their friendly bar is a great place to gather, laugh and appreciate some of the finer things in life, whether that is a cold beer from their selection of 25 different brews, some on tap, or an elegant glass of your choice of wine. You could also order your favorite cocktail and their skilled and smiling staff will serve you right.
Mediterraneo’s is a must, if you are looking for that delightful dining experience in Alpine!
