Jet Tila’s Dragon Tiger Noodle Co. chose the Southern Highlands Marketplace as one of the first locations for his new fast-casual restaurant, and across the parking lot, Spaghetty Western reopened after a summer remodel that almost doubled its size.
Spaghetty Western originally launched in 2013 as a Northern Italian gastronomia deli with a Western American flavor. Now the upgraded dining area and much larger bar solidify the restaurant's standing as one of the few upmarket destinations in the neighborhood.
Located at the intersection of Southern Highlands and Somerset Hills Avenue, the interior decor includes classic Western movie posters imported from Italy, plenty of opportunities to dine at the U-shaped bar, and booth seating hugging the walls.
The restaurant lives by the motto: “refusing to serve anything that’s been frozen or canned.” The restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and closing at 10 p.m on Friday and Saturday.
The Tila-fronted chain will serve a build-your-own-menu of pan-Asian noodle dishes, headed into a purpose-built structure a short walk from Spaghetty Western and joining newcomers Tropical Smoothie Cafe, Mint Locker, Baskin Robbins, and Verizon. An opening date has yet to be announced.
