Welcome to 808 Bistro, a neighborhood restaurant with a downtown feel. An Italian fusion bistro in the heart of Scarsdale.
The art of delicious food has shaped Salvatore Cucullo Jr.'s life. As a boy, he worked in his grandfather's pizzeria, and later at a family -owned restaurant. No one was surprised when Salvatore attended the Culinary Institute of America, followed by an externship at the exclusive Caf'e des Artistes in New York. In May 2010, he and business partner Lynn Kozy opened The 808 Bistro, where every customer feels like a part of the family. Salvatore owner/chef says his cusine is described as "Italian without borders"- with French , Asian, Mediterranean and Latin influences. Using only the freshest, predominantly organic ingredients, the menu's updated frequently to keep it seasonal.
" I'm very passionate about food and believe as a chef that I'm never more important than my ingredients", says Salvatore.
Traditional Italian chicken, veal and fish are always offered, and the restaurant accommodates special request. The bar uses fresh, muddled ingredients to make drinks, and suggested food and wine pairings are always on the menu.
