For the 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.

We had 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.

As the 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.

Our server 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 offered.

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.

From the 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.

We 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.

We also 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.

The 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.
