It’s called Mexitalian. That’s right. The Italian restaurant in Little Italy has introduced a new happy-hour menu that puts a twist on Italian and Mexican dishes.
The pub grub includes combos like flatbread Mexicano with cheddar, mozzarella, and sliced jalapeno peppers with a side of salsa, and quesadilla Italiana, a grilled tortilla stuffed with Gorgonzola and prosciutto.
La Scala’s chef/owner Nino Germano decided to merge heritages with his sous chefs Ray and Mauro to create the new cuisine, which is available in the bar from 4:30-7 p.m. Mon.-Fri. and 3-8 p.m. Sun., according to a press release.
Traditional menu favorites are still available, like bruschetta, fried calamari, and antipasto. There’s also a new bar table and stools to add to your comfort while sampling the new menu. I'll have to stop by soon.
