Osteria Rialto and Bar Biltmore

Paradise Theatre just re-opened after several years, and with it comes a new Italian restaurant, Osteria Rialto, as well as an upstairs bar with posh cocktails and snacks.

Bar Biltmore and Osteria Rialto

The Space:

Osteria Rialto

The inside of Osteria Rialto.

The interiors of both the bar and restaurant are reflective of the 1937 Art Deco-style venue. The light-filled Rialto is situated on the main floor and houses a long bar area, as well as plenty of white marble tables for guests to enjoy their dinner.

Bar Biltmore

Upstairs, the stylish Bar Biltmore boasts geometric floor tiles and gold-accented plush green stools that surround high-top tables and line the bar. The spaces are warm, inviting and cozy --perfect for a date night or an elegant dinner with friends.

The Food:

Appetizers at Osteria Rialto.

Osteria Rialto offers dishes that borrow from the style of traditional Southern Italian cooking, but with a modern twist. Diners enjoy a warm bread service pre-dinner, complete with high-quality olive oil and Castelvetrano olive puree, plus appetizers like pesce crudo (raw fish), black cuttlefish ink arancini or a selection of Italian cheeses. Mains include rich homemade pasta featuring ingredients like snow crab and veal ragu, as well as a few fresh seafood and meat dishes. At Biltmore, guests can snack on cheese, salumi, oysters, crostini and a selection of small plates while sipping their cocktails.

At Biltmore, the cocktail menu is focused on spritzes, sours and Negronis -- with each drink ranked out of five for its level of bitterness. The Halfstack features mezcal and lime with a gorgeous blue tint, and the Buongiorno combines rum and fernet with cold-brew coffee and tonic for a bitter yet refreshing sip. Downstairs at Rialto, the bar menu offers various artfully crafted, spirit-forward drinks, from refreshing and fruity to rich and creamy.
