Saratoga Club ($12)
A triple-decker sandwich with straightforward chicken salad, candied bacon, and crisp potato chips tucked between three pieces of toast. (You can't get anything this tasty in Saratoga.)
Delicate and crisply fried, with the just the lightest coating possible.
Pizza Knots ($5)
Salty fried pizza dough with a scattering of herbs.
Garlic Bread ($5)
Taken directly from the old Torrisi menu. Order it "deluxe" for an extra $2 and get a little dish of fresh ricotta cheese and tomato sauce for dipping.
Ricotta for the Garlic Bread ($2)
Fresh ricotta, olive oil, a rich, thick tomato sauce, and a few basil leaves—what every piece of garlic bread could use.
An assortment of vegetables are available—these caramelized florets tossed in bread crumbs are one of our favorites from the old Torrisi.
Baked Clams ($10)
Made with freshly shucked clams, sesame stick breadcrumbs, and butter, and then shoved under a broiler to crisp the butter and bread crumb mixture, these clams actually taste like fresh clams instead of rubbery pre-shucked crap. What a concept.
Meatball Parm ($8)
Carbone and Torrisi perfected this sandwich at their Yankee Stadium branch. The tender meatball starts with milk-soaked bread to retain moisture, plus a blend of pork sausage, veal, and beef.
Under the bun
A look inside the meatball parm. Notice the lovely fresh housemade mozzarella blanketing the single burger-sized meatball.
Ice Cream Cake ($8)
It looks like the old Carvel classic, but housemade ice cream (including a particularly flavorful pistachio) elevates this retro dessert. It looks silly, but man, is it good.
Jelly Zeppole ($6)
Fried to order, light, and dusted in sugar, these zeppole go way beyond the NYC street fair version.
