Gabriele’s Italian Steakhouse fills the void in the Fairfield County dining scene with the quintessential steakhouse. It brings together America’s two favorite cuisines under one location. Located a stone’s throw from Greenwich Avenue, Gabriele’s is fine dining – sans pretense.
Patrons from the local dining scene will be thrilled to see maitre d’ / managing partner, Tony Capasso, formely of Valbella, at the forefront of this exciting destination. Tony brings over 30 years of hospitality management, and food and wine expertise to Gabriele’s, ensuring a flawless dining experience that’s met with an easy-going sense of fun and entertainment.
The menu, executed by Chef Joseph Giordano, is a contemporary take on classic Italian and steakhouse fare – only better. The steaks are hand selected, prime beef, both wet and dry aged, seasoned with sea salt, crushed peppercorns and prepared with a custom built, high heat broiler which sears each cut to perfection.
Gabriele’s décor is as robust as its food. Owner Danny Gabriele, working with the talents of Haverson Design, has transformed the Church Street restaurant into a sleek, club’esque dining, bar and event space. The brick country club façade gives way to a stately dining room framed by dark wood floors, Venetian plaster walls, and coffer ceiling. Various alcove seating and fireside tables add depth and warmth to the space.
The bar is an experience in and of itself. The great, wood-burning, stone fireplace looks out over a large moss green, unpolished granite bar complete with high back leather bar stools and high-top tables throughout the room. Top shelf spirits provide a vibrantly lit backdrop to the social scene that ensues. Private dining can be accommodated in the wine room, which is lined with over 2000 plus bottles of global varietals, styles, and vintages accompanied by an onyx dining table that illuminates the intimate room.
