Hotel Zero Degrees Norwalk Dining at Mediterraneo
Mediterraneo’s acclaimed kitchen comes steered by the able hand of Chef Albert DeAngelis, who learned his trade at the Culinary Institute of America as well as restaurants in New York City and France.
Blending Old World preparations and techniques with American culinary flourishes here and there, Mediterraneo boasts an enticing and far-ranging menu, to say the least. The appetizers alone—from grilled pita with eggplant dip or chickpea hummus to grilled shishito peppers, hand-cut French fries, and P.E.I. mussels—are worth getting excited about. Choose between traditional hamburgers, truffle burgers, and veggie-and-garbanzo burgers, or go with a Maine lobster roll, a falafel flatbread sandwich, or one of several note-perfect pizzas.
Or perhaps you’re more in the mood for pasta—spicy shrimp fettuccine, say, or penne rigata with cured pork and onions in a spicy tomato and vodka cream—or a hearty and delicious bowl: grilled salmon, Mediterranean falafel, or crispy chicken. Other entrées include eggplant parmesan, a roasted half-chicken dish, and filet mignon. Choices, choices…
Rest assured you’ll be able to conclude your Mediterraneo feast on the right kind of sweet note: A plethora of desserts here encompasses everything from Italian donuts and tiramisu to vanilla creme brulee and a lavish triple chocolate brownie.
Gazing out on the waterfall, enjoying the riverfront breeze wafting through the retractable windows, you can raise a toast to the good life: a Mediterraneo cocktail such as the Don Johnson, the Milestone Martini, or the Blood Orange Margarita, or maybe a pint of Connecticut craft beer or a glass of fine wine.
