Morso Cooking Demo-TomArena29


The fun only gets better in the summer! Whether you want to grab a quick drink and bite at the bar or are looking for a leisurely dinner with your gal pals at a table, Morso  is the place to go.

Every Monday night – 5:30 to 7:30 – Grab a table, its Ladies Night

Monday through Friday – 5:30 to 7:00 – It’s Happy Hour at the bar, featuring a special bar menu




At long last  the warm weather has arrived. Although this past weekend was the unofficial start of summer, at the restaurant summer is here. The Summer Terrace is open and every day the menu specials include dishes featuring the fresh produce of the season.

From dining al fresco while enjoying these lighter dishes, to the beauty of the flowers, plants and herbs we grow at the restaurant, I love everything about this time of year.

Why…..perhaps because summer is so short and fleeting?  As I noted fifteen years ago in Simply Tuscan, “Think about it, how many great nights do we have in our lives? How many beautiful, temperate, moon-drenched evenings when we actually have the time to stop and just enjoy ourselves, our friends and our families?”

I hope you stop by and enjoy the season with me.



Summertime Menus


With the warm, sunny weather bringing everyone outdoors, Chef Pino has introduced the new summer lunch and dinner menus. Many items available only as specials on the spring menu are now available every day, including the Plum & Nectarine Salad, Ravioli Nudi, Vitello Tonnato, Melanzane Parmgiana, Bistecchina, and Scampi E Capesante, to name a few. The Wednesday night special has even changed to the light fish & shellfish stew, Cacciucco.  With all of the foods showcasing the freshest summer produce and ingredients, they are perfect for dining al fresco. We hope you’ll stop by soon and enjoy the green garden oasis on our Terrace under the bridge.
