The adventurous restaurant Tipica (at Caputo’s Market and Deli) is sadly no more. Rising from the ashes however is the Caputo’s new project, Caputo’s By Night. In celebration of this new restaurant we have a $50 gift card to give away to one lucky reader. But first, a little bit more information on Caputo’s By Night.
Tony Caputo’s Market and Deli has long been a favorite for lunching diners. The deli side of the operation serves an average of 500 lunches per day. Due to customer demand for a more casual evening dining experience Caputo’s Deli hours are now expanded for dinner service. Dinner service will be available Tuesday through Saturday from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m., however, the deli operations are available daily Sunday, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to closing.
Tony Caputo’s brother Mikey (Uncle Mikey) is the new chef. He has run kitchens from fine dining operations to diners and everything in between. Mikey specializes in cooking simple Italian food quickly and consistently. His vast line cook experience will ensure the kitchen excels no matter how busy evenings get. Mikey insists all meats and poultry are fresh and cooked to order every time. For fish, Caputo’s just happens to have the state’s best fish market right next door. Whole fresh fish are bought and butchered in house daily.
The popular sandwiches and salads will still be served at night but ‘Caputo’s By Night’ will also serve many rustic Italian hot dishes using provincial Italian ingredients from the award-winning market. Dinner service will still include white table cloths, servers, and wine and beer, just in a more casual atmosphere.
Matt Caputo commented: “We’re very excited about our new venture. Our goal is to give people Italian deli comfort classics in an upscale yet relaxed environment. And with our reasonably priced wine and beer list, which includes wines by the glass starting at $4 and beers (including three Squatters on tap) starting at $3, customers can get a hearty and comforting meal and a drink for under $15 and rarely over $20”.
To stand a chance of winning the $50 gift card, all you need to do is complete the following sentence:
“My favorite thing to do ‘by night’ is…”
