Benvenuti amici  (Welcome friends)

CONCERTO Italian KitchenNORTHFIELD, OH, JUNE 15, 2016—A new Italian, fast-casual restaurant — Concerto Italian Kitchen – opened today at Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park (HRRNP), further evolving the venue’s award-winning reputation as Northeast Ohio’s premier destination for gaming, dining and entertainment.


There was no yellow ribbon at the event to celebrate the restaurant’s opening event.  Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park Chairman & CEO, Brock Milstein, and President, Mark Birtha, officially opened “Concerto,” with the down beat of a conductor’s baton to start a violin concerto, performed by Cleveland Institute of Music students.

The Rocksino, which already offers seven different food and beverage venues on its premises, developed the new restaurant in response to guest requests for additional dining options and their strong preference for Italian cuisine. The outlet’s menu offerings and unique design will be adopted by Hard Rock International properties and used for similar projects around the world.

Concerto Italian Kitchen will add 40 new jobs to the local economy, continuing to make Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park a strong economic engine in the community.

Food, Service, Surroundings

“The menu, service and ambiance will be incomparable,” explains Mark Birtha, President, Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park.

The menu features local favorites and custom-made pizzas and pasta dishes along with sandwiches, fresh salads, wine, espresso drinks, Italian ices and gelato desserts. Guests can choose from 20 different pizza toppings and select from an impressive list of pasta offerings.

“All food will be prepared on-site and made to order to each customer’s personal preference,” says Birtha. “And, it will be served by team members who are passionate about creating ‘authentic experiences that rock’!”

Concerto’s decor will feature hardwood floors and a color palette filled with warm, rich reds and browns to accent the fine leather seating for 72 people.  The visual centerpiece of the dining area will be a luxe fireplace that warms the environment.  The kitchen will feature a wood-burning, 800 degree pizza oven to efficiently create hand-crafted foods unique in the marketplace.

Concerto Italian Kitchen could become the prototype for similar restaurants elsewhere across Hark Rock International properties, says Birtha. “This is a significant investment for us; and I think we have created something extraordinary here. We look forward to seeing other Concerto Italian Kitchens, developed originally here in Northeast Ohio, at future Hard Rock International destinations.”

Growth and Change-

Since opening over two years ago, Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park has become Ohio’s premier destination for gaming, dining, and entertainment. The challenge now, Birtha says, is to continue to reinvest and grow the property to address current trends and exceed customer desires.

“In short, we’re keeping it fresh, lively and inviting,” says Birtha, “offering something to appeal to almost any taste. That’s why Concerto Italian Kitchen is just one more reason to come visit and discover all we have to offer. At the Rocksino, you’re sure to ‘Find Your Rhythm.’”
