SIMPLE AND Elegant By Melissa Walsh Photos Yanni
The ambience is simple and elegant like the food of chef, Melinda who creates palate enlightening cuisine combining homemade pasta with a modern twist.
With Del Posto meaning ‘of the place’ in English, the husband and wife team, Nick and Melinda, has created a slice of Italy for their local community in Rye.
“We specialise in pasta but have a couple of other main dishes like spatchcock and fresh fish,” said Melinda who has been a chef since she was 21. “I cook what we always loved to eat growing up, with lots of fresh pasta and fresh local ingredients.”
With a reputation for good food and a welcoming environment, Del Posto 2409 does not skip a beat, in true Italian style.
Melinda grew up in an Italian household with her parents running restaurants as long as she can remember.
el Posto 2409 is the ultimate expression of what an Italian restaurant should be, and we are fortunate enough to have this Italian kitchen and bar right on our doorstep.
