SUMMIT, NJ - Piattino: A Neighborhood Bistro, which opened in the Hilltop City this past January with a mission to "serve up great Italian fare with a modern twist," will host a day-long, 'dine and give back' event April 12, from 11:30 a.m. - 10 p.m., benefiting the Summit Area YMCA.

Guests can enjoy lunch and dinner at Piattino -- bring in the event's flyer, or take a picture of it -- and 15% of all sales, including all food and non-alcoholic drinks and take-out orders, will be donated to The Y's Annual Campaign.

The Annual Campaign is a period in which the Summit Area YMCA raises funds to support not only financial assistance for childcare and membership, but also for the many free programs that make meaningful impact within the community, such as:

  • Allowing a cancer survivor to get a free membership into the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program, a cancer recovery program that helps recovering patients regain strength physically, emotionally, and in myriad other ways.
  • Enabling The Y to teach Second Graders how to swim for free, reducing the risk of drowning in children.
  • Helping Seventh Graders receive free memberships, providing them a safe place to go, socialize, and be healthy when they could otherwise be idle and get into trouble.
  • Assisting minority teens get the help they need in career and college application process, including college tours, tutoring and more. 

Piattino sources artisan ingredients from across the world and locally. The 5,200 square-foot restaurant is located at 67 Union Place, immediately next to the Office Tavern Grill. Both establishments are owned and operated by the Morristown-based 40NORTH Restaurant Group.

In addition to favorite menu items from its original Mendham location, Piattino Summit has added seven new dishes to its menu, like the Seafood Fregola - jumbo shrimp, lobster tail, charred fennel, roasted tomato and lobster broth and the Truffled Porchietta French Dip - smoked mozzarella, truffle aioli, and caramelized onions. The new Summit location will also offer a full bar, house-made cocktails, and an extensive wine selection by the bottle and glass, as well as an expansive Charcuterie assortment.

Known for its hand-stretched Neapolitan style pizzas and sandizzas -- Piattino's own version of a Panini -- baked fresh at 800 degrees in its imported Italian stone-fired oven, Piattino uses premium ingredients ranging from truffled wild mushrooms to 24-month-aged prosciutto di Parma

Piattino is open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week, and will serve brunch on the weekends, Piattino Summit’s hours of operation are Monday – Thursday 11 a.m.  - 10 p.m.; Friday - Saturday 11 a.m. - 12 a.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
