Da Jerry (VE)
The sparkle of the sea waves, the beach at sunset, and the retro allure of one of the many kiosks that, since the 1970s, have been the symbol of the cities of the Veneto coast. It is impossible not to fall in love with this magic when dining at Da Jerry, one of the most romantic fish restaurants on the coast.
It was the beginning of 2000 when Mauro Teso decided to take the concession of a strip of beach in Cavallino-Treporti, an area that at the time was not very frequented by the tourist flow, with the dream of creating an oasis of good living. He rebuilt the wooden kiosk on the beach and started organizing informal parties and aperitifs.
In 2006 he opened the restaurant, faithful to the idea of maximum quality and a cuisine that must satisfy the taste, but also the view, to be enjoyed in a relaxed luxury environment made of Persian carpets, candles, white curtains and gazebos that are available for customers who, before or after lunch, want to relax on the beach.
Today Da Jerry is an undisputed institution for top fresh fish with a menu that offers 16 types of raw fish – a must-try of the place -, and lovely pasta dishes such as spaghetti with clams or linguine with lobster. A quality guaranteed by the chef, longtime trustworthy collaborator of Mauro, who for the past ten years has been cooking everything fresh on the moment, carefully selecting the fresh fish purchased from trusted local suppliers, and sending it back if it does not meet the restaurant’s quality standards.
The wine list is well stocked, which also includes the Prosecco Alena, produced by Mauro in Covolo, in the Valdobbiadene hills area, from a vineyard of his property.
During the central months of summer, evenings are enlivened by live entertainment selected by Mauro to offer guests an experience that embraces the 5 senses. Do not miss the DJ set on Saturdays, the live blues music on Thursdays and the magic shows on Friday. From early March until the end of September, book one of the outdoor tables on the beach to fully enjoy the sea view. Fantastic at sunset, it becomes poetry on a hot off-season day when the beach is deserted and the horizon encourages you to dream big.
Not being able to call his restaurant Da Mauro, due to a nearby restaurant of the same name, the owner decided to pay homage to the legendary Jerry Lewis, an American artist he loved to imitate.
