Long-awaited Taverna Rossa, the Cadillac Pizza Pub offshoot boasting a menu designed by Brian Luscher of The Grape, will open its West Plano doors very soon, and they've finally revealed a full menu.
As promised, there's a selection of creatively-topped stone-fired pizzas, including one called The Hunter that will be topped with garlic-onion marmalade, slices of Texas beef and roquefort cheese, and the Kona Fire Pie, which puts a twist on the usual pork-and-pineapple Hawaiian combo with the addition ofcashews and jalapenos (pickled in-house). Starters include a trio of dips served oh-so-trendily in Mason jars, whole roasted artichokes, queso with local sausage (and the option to add smoked brisket), and baked chicken wings with a Calabrian chili sauce.
There's also salads, including a Caesar, a wedge, and a caprese with tomatoes from local farmer J.T. Lemley, pastas such as a brisket lasagna, and a handful of sandwiches including a meatball grinder, roasted pork with broccoli rabe, and a BLT with pancetta and a fried egg.
The drink menu promises 24 beers on tap, with local selections from Peticolas, Revolver, and Franconia, and a dozen or so craft cocktails, including The Deep South, with bacon-infused bourbon, sweet vermouth, bitters, orange juice and local honey.
Scope out the full menu here, and keep up with Taverna Rossa as they creep toward an opening date via their Facebook page.
