On Monday, Italian restaurant, market, and "culinary club" Bellina Alimentari will be the latest Ponce City Market restaurant to officially open its doors. With former Horseradish Grill chef Dave Berry running the kitchen, Bellina will offer take-away dishes, in-house dining at the 14-seat bar, and ingredients such as fresh pasta and local meats and cheeses.
The dine-in menu features a selection of antipasti, first-course pasta dishes, and second-course entrees. Look for options such as maltagliati della sorellina (house-made maltagliati pasta with mushroom ragu and crispy chicken bites); seasonal vegetable dishes at the antipasti bar; and Francesina, a Tuscan pulled beef and sweet onion stew, served over polenta. At the bar, expect Italian wines, beer, and cocktails, along with a selection of grappa for those who wish to channel their inner Frederic Henry.
Once it opens, Bellina's regular hours will be Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Take a look at the complete menu below.
