When J. Razzo’s (12501 N. Meridian St., Carmel, 317-844-9333), a new far-north restaurant with a local pedigree, opened a few weeks ago, there was a built-in buzz factor. Of course, Indy’s enduring obsession with good Italian food has been well publicized (as is only fitting for a cuisine imported from a country shaped like a boot to a state shaped like a sock). But this Carmel ristorante also boasted the golden touch of John Perazzo, the former chef at Indy institution Salvatore’s and, later, co-owner of downtown’s recently deceased Zing—an ancestry worthy of kissed fingertips in and of itself.
In mid-August, former Salvatore’s chef John Perazzo plans to open a traditional Italian restaurant in Carmel. The menu at J. Razzo’s will include some dishes from Salvatore’s and highlights such as chicken veneto–chicken strips simmered in white wine, garlic, pistachios, artichoke hearts, and parsley.
