The former Dominion Bank Building on historic Stephen Avenue Walk has been home to Teatro for more than 20 years. Its grand, carved stone columns and ceilings tell the story of what it must have been like to be a bank customer in days of yore – i.e.: valued and respected. And Teatro serves its clientele with just that kind of attentive flair. Its contemporary Mediterranean cuisine features local, imported and organic ingredients as well as fine international cheeses. The lobster risotto is to-die-for decadence.
Billed as an “immobile food truck” dealing “street meat,” Carne keeps it simple with a menu of just three sandwiches, served on house-made bread – roast porchetta, spicy Italian meatball and alpine grilled cheese. All of Carne’s offerings are prepped in the kitchen of its upscale-Italian mother-ship restaurant, Teatro, ensuring these sandwiches are something special.
Teatro, in the posh Dominion Bank building on Stephen Avenue Walk, carries vintages going back to when the fine Italian eatery opened close to three decades ago. They buy the same wines every year, from Napa and Bordeaux, and that means they create verticals with a lot of the high-end wines. It’s possible to enjoy vintages of the same wine going back years. That’s their pride and joy – they invested in a great cellar.
