Look for some new changes coming to one of Pasadena’s best restaurants. Eater reports that Trattoria Neapolis on South Lake is going through some new changes including a new chef and a new menu.
When it first opened in 2012 under the culinary guardianship of Bryant Wigger, Trattoria Neapolis aimed to be an elevated version of your favorite neighborhood pasta/pizza joint. Now it looks like the owners are trying to draw in some new clientele by hiring a new chef, Clinton McCann, and going for more of an Italian Steakhouse concept. And as Eater points out, Italian Steakhouses are getting more popular around the city this year, so its nice to have one close by.
While many new Italian steakhouses tend to focus on a housemade charcuterie, Trattoria Neapolis still looks to be maintaining an Italian American focus on all of its menus, from cocktails to brunch through dinner—although some of the sausages promise to be house made. Rather than just pizzas coming out of the wood-burning oven, look for hearty meat dishes as well, including prime steaks, pork chops, chicken, and fish.
Even the appetizers have been updated. Look out for blue crab arancini and meatballs. The brunch looks especially intriguing to me as it looks like it will captivate the hearts of even non-brunch lovers with a pork Panini or prosciutto Benedict, not to mention an array of egg scrambles with some Italian twists thrown in.
If you haven’t been in a while or you’ve been meaning to check it out, the new changes make it worth a look.
