Pelham’s premier Italian Steakhouse, Jordan Hall 10803 welcomes the summer season with wonderful specials. They are open for lunch and dinner with seating available inside or outdoors on their Fifth Avenue patio. Host and partner Florio Rugova welcomes every guest warmly. Even during your dining experience, he will stop by your table to make sure everything is to perfection. Other partners are Kerry and Guy Sansone, Stacey Fink and Chris Fink.
The dining room is large and comfortable, along with a beautiful bar area with a pristine grand piano combining New York City chic with suburban sophistication. There is free parking available one block away and valet service on the weekends.
While summer conjures up thoughts of grilling steak and the proper sides on your backyard grill, Jordan Hall can take the job out of grilling – and cleaning up – with expertise. Try their Prime NY Strip, Prime Bone-in Rib-Eye and the delectable Prime Aged Porterhouse for two.
Summer lunch items include Fried Calamari and a wonderful Farfalle Caprese (see recipe). Other choices include: Caesar Salad, a gorgeous Beet Salad and Jordan Hall Meatballs. Chef Eric makes is very difficult to choose from the exquisite entrees such as: Veal Marsala, Pan-Roasted Salmon, Chicken Scallopini and more. The Jordan Hall Carbonara featuring crispy pancetta, egg and parmesan cream sauce with a hint of black cracked pepper is highly recommended. Those that have travelled to Italy have commented that it’s even better here.
Sunday Brunch is the perfect time to sit outside on the patio and enjoy Crab Cakes, Classic Eggs Benedict with Grilled Maple Smoked Bacon and a mouth-watering NY Strip.
So, include Jordan Hall on your list of restaurants to enjoy this summer (or any time of year) for a casual weekday lunch, brunch or dinner.
