last 5 years, Tony's at The J House, helmed by Tony Capasso, has attracted a dedicated
clientele looking for exceptional cuisine in a beautiful setting. Located in Greenwich,
Connecticut inside the luxury boutique hotel, The J House Greenwich, the restaurant offers diners the opportunity to dine indoors in the
more formal dining room, or outside in their garden room with its hanging glass
bottle lights and its retractable roof. Our dinner at the restaurant began with
well-crafted cocktails and delectably ended with a delicious dessert.

dinner at Tony's at The J House during our stay at the hotel on Friday, August
25, 2023, and opted to sit in the attractive dining room with its brown leather
banquettes, and tables dressed in white linens flanked by dark wood chairs with
black leather seats. Large red "drum" lampshade lights softly illuminated and
added a warm glow to the room, vintage mirrors lined the walls, and four trees
added to the inviting ambience. There is a large wraparound bar and a sushi bar
located opposite the restaurant.
restaurant has an inspired cocktail menu, we began our evening with two of
their cocktails, the Passion Mojito, and the Old Fashion. As fans of dark rum,
the Passion Mojito made with Diplomatico Exclusivo Dark Rum, Chinola Passion
Fruit Liqueur, Lime Juice, and simple syrup, served in a "Collins" glass, was a
great introduction to the restaurant's bar style. Also nice was the Old Fashion
made with Redemption Bourbon Infused with Oranges and Luxardo Cherries House
Aged in Oak Casks.
brought us focaccia and sliced Italian bread accompanied by "Sunday Gravy"
(richly cooked pasta sauce) and a bowl of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to enjoy with
our cocktails as we perused the dinner and listened to the additional specials
The menu is
divided into Appetizers, Salads, Raw Bar, Pasta, Chicken & Veal, House
Specialties, Dry Aged Steaks (USDA Prime - dry aged from 28-25 days), Sauces,
and Sides, with enough variety to appeal to diverse palates.
Appetizers section of the menu, we selected the Fritto Misto, which consisted
of rock shrimp, calamari, zucchini chips, long hot peppers, in a light batter
and deep-fried until lightly golden, accompanied by a bowl of spicy tomato
sauce, and the Grilled Octopus, which was absolute perfection accompanied by a
generous mound of potato salad with sliced red onion, olive oil, and lemon.
Both appetizers were well presented and delicious.
continued our dining experience at Tony's at The J House with an entrée
selection from the Pasta section, the Tagliatelle Truffle with black truffle,
cream, truffle Romano cheese, topped with a large lobster tail. Truffle lovers
that we are, we loved the Tagliatelle Truffle. This was a more than generous
amount of al dente pasta bathed in a delectably rich truffle cream sauce.
selected an entrée from their House Specialties section, the Colorado Rack of
Lamb with a Dijon mustard crust, garlic mashed potatoes, and lamb au jus. The
rack of lamb was cooked medium at our request and was extremely flavorful and
delicious. From the Sides section, we selected the Asparagus, which was grilled
and crusted with Parmesan to accompany both entrées.
Colorado Rack of Lamb
restaurant has an extensive and very tempting dessert menu, (Tiramisu,
Chocolate Layer Cake, Crème Brûlée, NY Style Cheesecake, to name but a few,
however it was the Zucchino, which was luscious layers of Vanilla Crème
Anglaise, topped with Espresso Chocolate Mousse, and crowned with Toasted
Almonds. Served in a wine glass and garnished with a chocolate "straw" and a
fresh strawberry, it was light and delicious and the perfect ending to a
delectable dinner at Tony's at The J House.
