Summer seems to be here in Jackson, and that means adventures, patio-inspired happy hours, cocktails and early evening dining are getting into full swing. If you are looking for something a little different this summer, look no farther than the new happy hour bites and amazing cocktail specials at Glorietta Trattoria.
New to the hole, Glorietta has quickly became a local favorite place to dine out because of its inviting and relaxed atmosphere, amazing food and specialty drinks. Executive Chef Troy Furuta has conceived a menu that features rustic, wood-fired Italian cuisine. Many of the plates are meant to be enjoyed together creating a very social dining experience.
This summer the crew at Glorietta will be rolling out an all new cocktail list that is truly amazing. They have been working with Proprietors LLC to create an entirely new cocktail list specifically for the hot summer months. Starting Thursday they will be opening up the patio and serving up the new drinks, including an amazing bloopy mary that I think rivals the best in town. Made from scratch right down to the peppercorn-steeped vodka and house fire-roasted tomatoes, this bloody will perk up any afternoon (see the recipe below).
Starting May 30 they will begin their summer happy hour, which will include $10 cocktails, half off beer and wine and their new casual interactive summer small bites. This happy hour will be different than any other, as chef-inspired bites will literally just keep coming out from the kitchen. No menu needed, you will get what the chef feels like making. If you see something you like, grab it. If it’s gone, you will have to wait to see what comes out of the kitchen next. You really have to check out this unique way that Glorietta is inspiring you to enjoy the afternoon. The happy hour will be from 3-6 p.m. daily.
