In Massa, a Scarsdale, New York, favorite, the renowned father-son restaurateur team of Pasquale and Francesco Coli wanted to create a restaurant that would evoke the authentic essence of traditional recipes from Puglia, Italy. Pasquale, the executive chef, developed an outstanding menu that offers fresh seafood shipped in daily from all over the world as well as special items that vary by season. At the same time, the country-style renovation performed on the building that houses the restaurant recalls the old world style of farm homes in Puglia, utilizing reclaimed century-old boards taken from a number of barn houses in New England. The planked vaulted ceilings, wood floors and stone fireplaces only add to the ambiance of the restaurant, which serves as a romantic hot spot with its candles and low-key atmosphere. For these reasons and many more, Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty is delighted to have selected Massa for our newest webisode of Best Address.
Our host Ana Berry recently met with Joe Della Medaglia, manager of Massa, to discuss the establishment’s fantastic menu. Dishes that demand to be tried include the braised stuffed artichokes with parmesan cheese, lemon and white wine, as well as the Mediterranean sea bass topped with crispy leeks. Additional Italian classics include the zucchini fritti, tuna carpaccio, steak pizzaiola with capers and Gaeta olives, and eggplant parmigiana. The desserts are delicious as well, with the tartufo being a notable standout according to The New York Times. The lovely three-story restaurant also has a lively bar area that is especially popular on Wednesday and Friday nights for its live music, offering a superb selection of wines from every corner of the world in addition to seasonal cocktails fashioned from homemade vodkas. Massa has become a sought-after destination in Scarsdale, whose residents have embraced the restaurant for providing not just great food, but a great experience.
