Ponte Vecchio in Old Bridge

Looking for a fabulous BYOB, that has ambiance and incredible food?  Look no further than one of the three LouCas Restaurants in Middlesex County: Ponte Vecchio, Italian Seafood Grille!

Named after the famous bridge in Florence, now teeming with gold vendors…this jewel of a seafood restaurant will hook you with the finest dishes that Italy has to offer. With the crazy accumulation of snow this winter, you’re probably craving some good old fashioned Comfort Food, I’m sure!  You might try exploring Ponte Vecchio’ s version of Macaroni and Cheese (pictured above)…

A sophisticated twist on a family favorite, this dish is sublimely creamy, tossed with three cheeses and chunks of crabmeat. It is then drizzled with Truffle Oil, and enveloped in a buttery crumb topping.  The crock dish I ordered was on the Appetizer Menu, but truthfully, it was a perfect size for an entrée. I paired it with a Fennel and Arugula Salad, with shavings of aged Parmesan Reggiano, and a glass of Prosecco. Positively delicious!

Although Ponte Vecchio is perfect anytime, you might want to dabble in their culinary forte any Monday through Thursday, via their Prix Fixe menu.
