Saint Rocco’s New York Italian

Saint Rocco’s New York Italian has three levels: the main dining room on the ground floor, Trinity Room private event space on the second floor, and the posh Rocco’s Rooftop Lounge on the third floor. Saint Rocco’s New York Italian is the latest restaurant concept from industry legend Phil Romano and Executive Chef and Co-Owner Jay Valley. Located in Dallas’ Trinity Groves, this upscale casual eatery takes its inspiration from the family dinner tables the two grew up with as first-generation Italian Americans. The menu features unique twists on favorites including the Sicilian lasagna, a deconstructed version of the classic served tossed in bowl with mini-meatballs, Bolognese and fresh ricotta, as well as the Pecorino Pastina with grilled jumbo shrimp and asparagus. Italian for “tiny dough,” Pastina with butter, milk and cheese was the go-to comfort food of Chef Valley’s mother.
