RESTAURANT REVIEW

Coals is simply a lot of fun A simple formula that works: Grilled pizzas and handcrafted beers

T

BY JANANNE ABEL

he Coals logo sums up the new Port Chester restaurant’s menu quite simply. “Pizza. Grilled,” it states. The same words appear as decals in the front windows. Add to that their ever-changing selection of craft beers and you’ve described Coals in a nutshell.

Located at 35½ North Main St. in a small space that was previously Patrias and has long been the site of some sort of restaurant, Coals opened the Wednesday before Memorial Day. It took flight just in time to be part of the Tamarack Tower Foundation’s A Taste of Port Chester fundraiser where participants paid $25 and over the course of one early June afternoon were able to sample the offerings at more than 30 local restaurants. “We can attribute a lot of our success to A Taste of Port Chester,” said co-owner Tim Shanley. “We had 300 people who came in. It kept us alive the first month.” Some of those 300 people— including me—liked the pizza samples they tasted on that glorious Saturday afternoon and returned later for dinner. Shanley, 45, whose specialty is the craft beers, can usually be found behind the bar which is the focal point as you enter the restaurant. He teamed up with Bill Etzel, 44, on this new venture. The two hail from the Bronx, Shanley from the bay section, Etzel from City Island. Etzel owns another 8-yearold restaurant by the same name in the Bronx. He was looking to open a second location and Shanley, whose wife Rosanne is a childhood friend of Etzel’s, “jumped at the chance” to part-

ner with him this time around. Eight years ago Etzel had asked him, but he wasn’t yet ready to quit his job driving a truck for Con Edison. However, all through high school and college he had worked at restaurants and, he said, “I truly love it.” As an outgoing people person, he definitely has the personality for the job. When he and Etzel were searching for a spot, a friend in the area suggested Port Chester. With Tarry Lodge, bartaco and a host of other restaurants, it was “a jumping place” and only 15 minutes from home. “We saw this was a nice location for restaurants,” Shanley concluded. “I used to come for shows in the ’80s at The Capitol, and I couldn’t believe how much it had gentrified,” he said. “We are excited about the reopening (of The Capitol). We’re music geeks ourselves.” Shanley’s gregarious personality combined with the fact that he is a home brewer and knowledgeable about beer makes him the perfect person to be behind the bar recommending and pouring craft brews. On the other hand, his partner, Shanley said, “is a pizza geek” who fell in love with the grilled pizza at Al Forno in Providence, R.I. “They use hot coals,” Shanley said. “We use a really hot grill. Ours is a gas grill.” Coals’

Co-owners Tim Shanley and Bill Etzel toast a couple of microbrewed beers to Coals, their new Port Chester restaurant which opened at the end of May. The two stand behind the bar in front of the huge blackboard listing the 10 craft beers currently on tap. burgers, currently offers as a special, are also cooked on the grill. A pizza takes 2-2 ½ minutes to cook on the red hot grill at Coals. According to the food website Slice, Al Forno is the birthplace of grilled pizza. “It was there in 1980 that chef-owners Johanne Killeen and George Germon lit the proverbial fire, inventing grilled pizza by accident in an attempt at reproducing the wood-fired pizzas of Italy that they loved,” Slice states. “Billy is the chef; I’m the beer guy,” said Shanley. “All artisanal brewers we use, all made in the USA.” Etzel likes to use ingredients from farmers markets and comes up with pizza specials and soups based on what’s fresh from the farm. He makes the fresh mozzarella, the soup and the dough every day and also creates the specials.

COALS IS SIMPLY FUN

The super thin, oblong grilled pizzas at Coals are served on oval ceramic plates.

As I said from the start, the menu at Coals is simple: grilled pizza and hand-crafted beer with a few extra offerings thrown in to keep it interesting. “We may add some appetizers, but Billy is a firm believer in a small, simple menu and doing it well,” Shanley said. For now there are nine pizzas, four salads, mixed olives and a soup of the day. What looks like a blackboard on one wall lists the soup du jour, a daily pizza special and perhaps another special or two. One day it was a grilled Coals burger with asiago cheese ($8.50) on a soft roll which was a little well done for the medium

that was ordered but delicious nonetheless. We’ve also ordered an appetizer special: Coals Spicy Grilled Wings ($10). The wings are grilled and covered with a well-balanced, not-too-spicy sauce, creating an interesting smoky-spicy combination unlike any I’ve ever had before. I once sampled the corn chowder, made with sliced, thinskinned potatoes, and couldn’t believe how fabulously freshtasting and mouth-watering it was. However, the main reason you go to Coals is for the super thin oblong pizzas which come right off the hot grill and are placed on decorative oval ceramic plates. They’re cut into irregular-shaped pieces before serving. I’ve tried just about every variety on the menu and have found them all delectable. The flavors are bold, the ingredients fresh, the crust crunchy and the cheese seems to melt in your mouth. The margherita—fresh mozzarella, tomato, pecorino and basil ($11)—as well as the marlon (fresh mozzarella tomato, pecorino, arugula, roasted peppers and spicy oil at $14) are the most popular. The Dean Martin is the only meaty variety because it adds lots of thin slices of pepperoni to the fontinella, fresh mozzarella, tomato and pecorino ($13). My least favorite pizza is the vegan made with hummus, red onion, spicy olive oil and arugula ($13) because it’s missing the yummy cheese and is therefore a little dry. One pizza per person is recommended, but even though they’re thin, it’s a lot to eat. I recommend splitting both a pizza and the house made fresh

mozzarella with grilled red peppers, arugula and sea salt appetizer ($11). The latter brings a good-sized ball of homemade cheese in the middle of a long rectangular plate with a pile of peppers at one end and a mound of arugula in tasty olive oil and vinegar at the other. The cheese, which has a smooth, creamy texture and a subtle milky taste, goes nicely with the peppers and greens slightly coated in oil. The pizza itself is fun just because it’s different, but you’ve got to pair it with a flight of beer if you want to have the ultimate Coals experience. A flight of beer ($8) consists of four 4-ounce clear glasses served on a wooden paddle with slots for the glasses which are painted black so the names of the beers can be written in colored chalk next to each. You can choose from the 10 beers on tap or get two flights to share between two or more people and try almost all of them. Sipping, tasting, sharing and comparing is what it’s all about. My favorite beer up to this point has been the Wachusett blueberry ale from West Minister, Mass. into which some dehydrated blueberries are tossed just for effect. It tastes smooth, light, only slightly sweet and is just plain fun. If you stick with one pizza and a salad for two, you might have room for one of the dessert pizzas—either Nutella or Nutella and mascarpone cheese (both $7). These are the same thin grilled pizzas topped with the chocolate and hazelnut spread or the spread and cheese (I tried the latter), then folded over and sprinkled with powdered sugar and cut into pieces. They’re messy and rich, but crunchy and Please turn to page 7

RESTAURANT REVIEW

Coals is simply a lot of fun yummy. I don’t recommend eating more than one or two pieces at a time if you don’t want to end up with a stomach ache. On one recent visit, my husband and I shared the fresh mozzarella appetizer, a special pizza ($16), a flight of beer and a dessert pizza and our bill came to $44.51. Service is casual, generally friendly and not at all intrusive.

THE CRAFT BEER BUSINESS

Shanley loves talking beer and has some great stories. “I don’t have any Bud,” he admitted. “We are really into handcrafted stuff.” He can tell you what kind of beer pairs with what food and which of the microbrewed beers on tap you just might like. “If you like Coors Light, you will like Lagunita from Petaluna, Calif., he said. “If you like Blue Moon, you will like Allagash Belgian white ale from Portland, Me. You can taste the difference. They are made with fresh ingredients. You keep it 90 days and then get rid of it. Fortunately we have been going through enough so we don’t have to.” Captain Lawrence is the only local beer on tap. “We rotate them all,” Shanley said. “I just tell people it will be back. There are 1,700 breweries and they all make 15-25 types, so there are many styles of beer out there. Now is the greatest time to drink beer.” At this point in time all the summer beers are coming to an end, but now Coals will have Oktoberfest beer—pumpkin beers served with brown sugar and cinnamon on the rim of the glass. Besides the 10 microbrews on tap, which are all listed in colored chalk on a huge blackboard behind the bar, Coals offers cans and bottles of mostly craft beers (you can get a 16-ounce PBR, for instance, which isn’t), Rosie’s sangria ($8) offered as a special and a small selection of wines by the glass and bottle. Shanley particularly recommends the Saison Dupont beer from Belgium which comes in a 750 ml. bottle for $14. He said it has flavors of coriander and anise and is “a very complex beer.” It is made at a family brewery whose owners buried their cop-

per brewing kettles before World War II so the metal wouldn’t be used for the war effort, dug them up afterwards and the family is still using them. I shared a Lindemans Framboise from Belgium ($9), which comes in a 12-ounce green bottle like champagne, and found it does indeed have the distinctive but not overly sweet taste of raspberry. It’s a winner in my book.

DÉCOR TO MATCH THE MENU

Coals seats a total of 45 including eight in tall wooden chairs at the wood-topped bar. And people do eat as well as drink at the bar. Just like the menu, the décor here is simple. Walls are painted deep red on one side of the restaurant, beige on the other, and there’s a large mirror on one wall to make the space look bigger. A deer head hangs on wainscoting at the back of the restaurant and paintings I didn’t scrutinize hang on the walls. Large polished gray slate tiles cover the floor while the high off-white ceiling is tin in the back, lower and sheetrock in the front. The restaurant is dimly lit by an eclectic mix of hanging fixtures including fancy covered light bulbs at the bar and a large globed gaslight replica at the center of the room. Strings of small white lights decorate the front windows. Tables are square wood veneer with matching wood chairs and are set with paper placemats printed with the names and faces of all the U.S. Presidents, white paper napkins and large bottles of Pellegrino water.

HOURS, PARKING AND SUCH

Coals is open Tuesday through Friday from 5-10 p.m., Saturday from 12 noon10 p.m. and Sunday from 1-9 p.m. “We’re still tweaking the hours,” Shanley said. They’re thinking of opening Fridays for lunch, for instance. In addition, starting Sept. 14 they plan to stay open later and add live acoustic guitar music on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 p.m. to 12 midnight as they just received the cabaret license they had applied for to do so. “There is a demand for it,”

A flight of handcrafted beer at Coals. Shanley said. “As we’re locking up, people want to come in.” They expect to appeal to the 30- to 45-year-old age group and will probably have a bar menu during those hours that may or may not include pizza. Parking for Coals is on the street or in the marina parking lot on Abendroth Avenue—or even in the Waterfront at Port Chester parking garage if downtown Port Chester is really hopping and the weekend parking is too much in demand as it some-

times can be. Coals doesn’t deliver, but you can order takeout and pick it up. However, I don’t recommend it. “No pizza transfers well,” Shanley said. “Billy wants you to eat it within 30 seconds of it coming off the grill.”

WELCOMED WITH OPEN ARMS

Both partners have been thrilled with the reception they’ve received in Port Chester. “We were really welcomed

with open arms,” Shanley said. “People really seem to love it.” He said it was a rollercoaster ride for him because he has three young kids and although he was excited about going into his own business, he was nervous about how it would go. “The response is what makes it worth it.” “It’s been terrific,” said Etzel, “so many people coming back over and over.” He added that people in town are warm and friendly and the mayor is a regular customer.
