Port Jefferson, NY's Ruvo Restaurant has undergone a complete renovation. Remodeled just in time for spring, the newly renovated restaurant reopened at the end of February. They are now doing business under the name Ruvo Kitchen & Wine Bar. This cozy, rustic restaurant is creating a buzz in the community, people are taking notice.
Ruvo East has undergone extensive improvements more than just in its appearance, under the careful guidance of executive chefs Joseph DeNicola and Anthony D'Amico. With its revitalized menu, which focuses on mouth-watering Italian cuisine as well as live entertainment and alluring cocktails, it is no surprise that Ruvo East has become a hotspot in the city.
Ruvos East's new modern, expansive feel will immediately catch your eye as you enter the door. The stunning copper horseshoe-shaped bar stands just to your left, also housing a reimagined casual lounge area. A new bar furniture collection features comfortable leather sofas, upholstered chairs covered with dark leather and wooden tables for your dinner service. Across the back are the gorgeous bricks that lead you to a newly remodeled open kitchen, where you can watch the chefs in action. Added to the open appearance are mirrors that line the walls.
As you enter the Main Dining Room in Ruvo East, you will notice that the walls, which used to be bright yellow, have become calm, earthy green, all while special attention has been given to the original Ruvo artwork made by James DeNicola Sr. There's a long rectangular skylight with greenery outlining the window on the ceiling, giving it a rugged, earthy look. The table tops, once covered with linen, are now bare and dark stained for a more casual and modern look. In the details lies the beauty. The wall surfaces are lined with brick that lend life to the paintings. There are large billowing curtains draped across the ceiling in the opposite dining room and in the centre of the restaurant sits an antique lantern, adding to its rustic charm.
With its now extensive bar selection, this revolution is complete. There will be an increase in the range of wine selections available by the glass. The current count is ten. Several craft beers and craft wine will be featured weekly and flights are available for several tastings. You can purchase a bottle by the glass from any of the bottles on the list, but you must buy two glasses. House favorites like the "I love Lucy" and the Ruby Martini are included in the updated specialty drink menu.
