Homemade Italian meatballs, Caesar salad with chicken or salmon and affogato have been added to the menu at the Jazz Forum , the four-month-old jazz club in Tarrytown.
While the menu was always created to be light bites -- it's the music that's the big draw -- proprietors Mark Morganelli and Ellen Prior said they wanted to elevate the food offerings to make sure they'd appeal to all kinds of diners.
Customers will still find a variety of tapenades, charcuterie, and antipasti, but there are now more salads and light dinner items. The menu hones in on Italy with Italian cured meats and cheeses, olives, specialty breads and ricotta cheesecake.
In addition, diners will find a curated list of Italian wines, local beers on tap and an Italian-influenced cocktail menu – including a “perfect” negroni and espresso martinis - with premium brands and artisanal spirits.
As for the music, expect headliner jazz artists performing on Friday and Saturday nights (7 p.m. and 9 p.m.), and Brazilian Music Sunday shows at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
