Beverage Pairings For Our Columbus Restaurant Fan Favorites
How can you make our Columbus restaurant fan favorites even better? With a perfect beverage pairing, of course! At Bucceto’s in Columbus we have an extensive list of both beer and wine to choose from, and we have just the hit dishes to go with every pick. Some pairings we love out of our fan favorites list are:
- Scamorza – Our Scamorza is comprised of smokey melted Mozzarella on top of a bed of tomatoes and herbs with fresh toast for dipping. It’s warm, comforting, fresh, salty, and a delicious way to prep your appetite. For the perfect pairing, we love a crisp Stella Artois. Stella Artois is a pilsner that both cuts the fat of the cheese perfectly with a refreshing palate cleanse, and it’s not too much that it overpowers the freshness of the herbed tomatoes.
- Bruschetta – Our Bruschetta uses fresh tomato, garlic, and herbs on top of toast with an optional goat cheese choice. When enjoying our fan favorite bruschetta, we tend to prefer wine over beer, especially a Filadonna Pinot Grigio. The wine has a dry bite with a light medium body, so it cuts where it needs to cut but it’s never going to overtake all of the delicate flavors in the food.
- Ultimate Warrior – When it comes to Pizza, our Ultimate Warrior is our take on the supreme or deluxe. You have fresh veggies with onions, black olives, mushrooms, and green peppers, and they’re balanced out by spicy smokey meats pepperoni and sausage. For the Ultimate Warrior you really have a lot of flavor to play with, but we like to keep it clean so you’re not going too heavy in your meal. A crisp, cold Corona pairs well with both the spicy notes in the sausage and pepperoni and the fresh ones in all the vegetables.
- Lasagna – Big, beefy, cozy, and comforting, we love digging into a plate of our lasagna with a nice cold beer. Our lasagna is a filling dish, so we like a lighter sort of beer to go with it much like the Ultimate Warrior. Our Lasagna favorite pairing is the Italian pale lager Peroni Nastro Azurro. It’s crisp and palate cleansing, but it doesn’t leave you feeling too full to enjoy every bite of your meal.
While these are just a few suggestions, the best pairing is the one that tastes great to you. Looking to pair one of your Bucceto’s favorites at a Columbus restaurant? We can’t wait to see what you choose!
