French Wine Tasting

The wine tasting tonight will be French Fruit. Just like last week’s Italian tasting, we’ll be doing 4 French wines from 4 different regions to give people a chance to branch out and try new things. Things they may not feel comfortable trying, otherwise. So come on in and live a little.

Jammin’ To Usher!

I’m sitting here, listening to Veronika belt out “My Boo” by Usher (with hand motions and everything), at the bar, and debating whether I should film it so that I’ll forever have blackmail to lord over her. But right in the middle of that thought, the song skipped ahead and she looked at me like she was going to murder me, and I think it’d be wiser of me to not anger this woman.

The special for the week is House-Cut Filet, Oscar-style with Crab, Shrimp and Scallops, all tossed in Lemon Beurre Blanc and served with Seasonal Vegetable and Roasted Potatos. Rob promised a particularly good special this week, and he delivered. In addition to that, the Catch of the Week should make a lot of people happy. We’ve been getting requests for Salmon for a long time, now, and we’ve acquiesced. Grilled Salmon on a bed of Creamed Spinach with a Lemon Butter.

Tuesday Boozeday is in effect, like usual, with $7 Glasses of Red or White, House Cocktails, Wings, Brie en Croute and Fried Cheese. Always a good way to start a week.

Wednesday’s cocktail specials will all feature our new infusion: Pineapple, Serrano-infused Tequila. Don’t let the tequila scare you off, it was Veronika’s brain-child, and it’s absolutely fantastic. I encourage you to live a little and try it.

Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be all French wines. Just like last week, we’ll try to do 4 different regions, so people get an opportunity to try what wines taste like from different regions in France. I feel like it gives people the opportunity to experience wines that they don’t normally feel comfortable ordering. Every once and a while, I enjoy having a wine tasting that provides education and experimentation. Hopefully this accomplishes that.

Now, on to the bigger news. We have our Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday, May 13th, 2018 at 10:30am, reservation only. It’s buffet-style, featuring an Omelet Station, Biscuits and Gravy, Rosemary Baked Chicken, and more. In addition, we’ll have drink specials available, obviously including Mimosas and Poinsettias and more. The price is $25 per adult and $12 per child under 12. Rob’s excited, and I think it’ll be our best brunch ever.

Also, our 7th Anniversary Wine Dinner will be on Saturday, June 9th, starting at 5:00pm, also reservation only. It will be a prix fixe, 7-course dinner for $65 a person, with optional wine pairing. We’ll release the menu next week, but, suffice to say, it’ll be amazing. These paired wine dinners are always the most fun things to do, for us. I hope you all enjoy them as much as we do.

Lastly, the Bizzi’s Cellar Wine Club Tasting will be on Saturday, April 28 from 3-5 p.m. — eight fun & delicious wines to taste!

Mother’s Day Brunch

What a great day – I was able to wrench the laptop right out of Michael’s and Veronika’s grasping hands and take over! Can hardly pry these kids’ eyes away from the screen, dagnabit. That or it’s a really clever bit of reverse-psychology to get me to volunteer to write the email so they didn’t have to. And I’m just now realizing that that is almost certainly the case. To all the parents out there, I know we all want our kids to be better than us, but be careful what you wish for, because once they’re smarter than you and they know it, it’s open season on parents.

In lighter news, this week, we are featuring Chicken, Shrimp, Mushrooms, & Onions over House-made Fettucine tossed in Lemon Herb Butter.

Tuesday Boozeday is in effect, like always. $7 Glass of Red or White, House Cocktails, Wings, Brie en Croute and Fried Cheese.

Wednesday, we’ll be doing cocktail specials on New Orleans-themed drinks. We’ll have $7 Mint Juleps, Raspberry Collins, and Gin Fizzes. Hope you’re in the mood for jazz and liquor.

Don’t miss our Italian Wine Tasting on Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. – we will try different varietals from different regions, ideally from the 4 biggest regions so everyone can get some experience and hopefully feel more comfortable drinking Italian wine, in the future.  The Polar Bear and I will be right there with you because we don’t know enough about Italian wines yet (although a bucket list trip could be in the offering).

In response to the millions of requests, we will be serving brunch on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13 from 10:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., so make your reservations now for some delicious comfort food, an omelet station and amazing cocktails. Bring your mom, your kids, your friends, your neighbors, your significant others.  And don’t forget your dad.

Bizzi’s Cellar Wine Tasting is on Saturday, April 28 from 3-5 p.m. for those who are just champing at the bit to taste eight delicious wines (anyone, anyone?) – if you aren’t familiar with our Cellar Wine Club, just ask one of us – we are eager to tell you about it.

Tilt your face into the sun this week (and slide into Bizzi’s – we’d love to see you).

Rainy Day Blues

We love to eat…and, incidentally, to sip wine. That said – we do most those mostly at Bizzis’s. Great food, great wine (and cocktails), great company. Think of us as Cheers in Bedford. Norm!
-Elaine-

We know people don’t like going out in the rain. For anyone that wants to come out to Bizzi’s, tonight, we have a big pot of homemade coffee liqueur on the stove keeping warm that you’re more than welcome to share or combine with a cup of coffee to warm you, inside and out. Be safe.

Easter Liquor Hunt

Hope everyone had a happy Easter! I know sometimes there are a lot of kids around on holidays, Easter, especially. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Family is great, even when they’re not. But, hot damn, there’s something thoroughly satisfying about having an adult Easter. We got together and ate and played board games, it was a blast. But the true highlight of the night had to be our Easter Egg Hunt. Although, what made it “adult” was the fact that instead of painting and hiding eggs, we had about 60 travel bottles of liquor, and we hid those. Good stuff, too! Patron and Makers Mark and other top shelf stuff like that. Then we let the adults loose in the yard. They did pretty well, too. They found all but 4 of the bottles. So next time we have people over, some of them are liable to find a nice surprise!

Anyone else have any good Easter stories to share?

The special for the week will be New York Strip Teriyaki with Tempura Onions and Rice.

Tuesday is a great day for Boozeday, as usual. $7 Glass of Red or White, House Cocktails, Wings, Brie en Croute and Fried Cheese.

Wednesday’s Celebrating Spirits will be based around Dark Rum. We’ll be doing specials on Dark and Stormy’s, Roosevelt’s and Old School Daquiri’s. Or, if you have any better ideas, feel free to let me know.

Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be All Red Blends! Now, that may sound boring, at first, but we’ll do Red Blends from different areas, so, like usual, everyone can get an idea of what grapes and styles taste like from different areas. It’ll be educational and intoxicating!

Syrah Tasting Tonight

The wine tasting for tonight is Syrah. We’ll be doing 4 syrah from 4 different regions, so everyone can get a chance to taste a fantastic varietal in all its glory. It’s a grape that I think doesn’t get enough respect and it’s one of my all time favorites. Come in at 7:00pm, after the Rangers Game and either celebrate or drown your sorrows.

Happy Easter!

Hello, Peeps (get it?), how goes it?

I’m going to keep this short and sweet, this week, because we are splitting time between actually doing work and planning for Easter. I’m sure we’re not alone in our multi-tasking. So, rather than take up a bunch of your time, I’ll get right to the point.

The special for the week is Chicken Marsala with a House-made Rosemary Marsala Sauce.

Tuesday Boozeday is, as usual, a good night to come in and have a house cocktail, glass of red or white, brie en croute, fried cheese or wings for $7. It’s a little rainy tonight, but we’ll pour you something that’ll dry you right off.

Wednesday’s Celebrating Spirits will be Raspberry Drinks in celebration of Spring and berries and….stuff. Come in for $7 Raspberry Margaritas, Raspberry Mules and Raspberry Texas Roses. Or, if you think of something you’d rather have with fresh raspberries, feel free to let me know.

Thursday’s Wine Tasting will be all Syrahs. I’m not sure I’ve ever done a strictly Syrah tasting. I don’t know how people feel about it, but it’s one of my favorite varietals. Something about the combination of elegance and strength, with just a touch of the rustic. If you’re not entirely familiar with Syrah, or you just don’t drink many of them, I’d recommend you come in and try it. It’s a grape that everyone should keep in their wine rotation, and there’s great examples from all over the world. You will get a shot to taste Syrah from multiple different countries.

For The Bizzi’s Cellar Dwellers, there is Cellar Tasting on Saturday, March 31st, from 3:00pm-5:00pm, and Elaine will answer any questions you have about what she’ll have available to taste. See you then.

Alright, ladies and gents, be safe and we’ll see you soon.

Officially Spring

Happy Tuesday Boozeday! The first day of the work week is always hard for me so I often to take advantage of our drink specials. Come in and have one with me!

I don’t have a fun name for Wednesday, but what we lack in cleverness we make up for in delicious cocktails! This week we are featuring fresh blueberry cocktails – a nice fresh start to spring. Also, if you have a good name for Wednesdays, let me know!

Thirsty Thursday this week is going to be a blast! We are pouring Australia and New Zealand wines. I get so excited when we do something a little bit different. Tasting starts at 7

I am getting tired of seeing all of these delicious dinner specials! This week we are serving Shrimp and Grits – 4 fried and 4 blackened shrimp served over jalapeno cheese grits and topped with lemon butter. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again…. DIETS ARE THE WORST!

Don’t forget to check out our new Spring menus! Got some fun new items for both lunch and dinner!
