Adelmo Banchetti opened his Mediterranean/Italian/French restaurant on Cole on September 12, 1989. It was a cozy, two-story spot with a large menu. Banchetti, a gracious host, was always present. He closed the spot in March and moved into the former Bijoux spot in Inwood Village where he officially opens the doors on September 12, 2016.
Adelmo’s new menu will include his traditional dishes such as veal osso bucco, veal chop, and lobster ravioli. Banchetti plans to offer a wider variety of seafood dishes and some “light lunch” options. The larger restaurant space, once home to Bijoux, has a temperature controlled wine cellar where Banchetti will store a nice selection of half bottles of wine, an lost concept I’d love to see return to wine lists in Dallas.
Make reservations during opening week and you’ll receive complimentary Champagne and dessert.
