The wide-ranging experience and perspective comes to bear on Évero Spezia as a menu that Durnin himself can describe only as “eclectic American.” Roughly translated, that means influenced by culinary traditions far beyond America and Italy. Everything comes from a scratch kitchen that has neither microwave ovens nor freezers.
Évero Spezia offers the requisite personal pizza with toppings from fresh basil to pesto to cured meats and egg. In keeping with its commitment to craft and a manageably sized menu, the beer taps cover a range of styles by popular small breweries, and the wine list of about 40 bottles spans the globe and the spectrum of varietals.
Trite as it may sound, all of that adds up to something for everyone. Évero Spezia’s menu of Italian may not go as deep as others, but it is Italian enough, with enough other stamps on its passport to interest those in an area rich with restaurants that specialize in almost every ethnic cuisine imaginable. The overall variety is great enough to keep anyone interested over the long term.
