LYNNHURST — Terzo, a tiny wine bar with a huge wine selection, is now open at 2221 W. 50th St.
The all-Italian wine cellar houses 1,000 bottles, with a focus on the northern Piedmont region of Italy and more than 50 wines available by the glass.
“Terzo” means “third,” signifying its status as the third restaurant in the Broders family chain.
The menu focuses on small plate antipasti dishes, featuring salami and cheese boards to share, popular fried baby artichokes, house-made mortadella, and a $1 bite-sized skewer of the day — the current skewer is a fresh cherry wrapped in lardo with a hazelnut tip. The plates are also designed to be fun. The fresh tuna comes in a can, and a pistachio-crusted frog leg provides sort of a “frog leg lollipop,” said Broders’ President Molly Broder.
“It’s a cozy, cool little place,” she said, noting they carry great Prosecco.
The venue is open every day except Tuesday starting at 5 p.m., closing at 11 p.m. on weekdays and 12 a.m. on weekends. Forty-eight seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
