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.

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.

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.
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.
