We have Spaghetti alla Nerano back on the specials menu. If you aren’t familiar with it, this dish is one of Stanley Tucci’s favorites. The sauce is made from fried zucchini and butter and is then tossed with basil, parmigiano and Percorino Romano.

8 ½ The Fan will be closing at 2pm today, Monday, February 5, to attend the memorial/celebration of life for our dear friend and colleague Evan Duke. A bright smile, quirky sense of humor, a love of football, pugs, and hilarious Halloween costumes were all quintessentially Evan. It is especially difficult to say goodbye to someone who has been a part of 8 ½ for 16 years. Our deepest condolences to his family and to all those who knew and loved him.

01/30/2024

Sharing our heartfelt sadness at the passing of our most dedicated, loyal, and talented pizza maker, Evan Duke. His gentle and kind spirit brightened our kitchen for 16 years, nearly the length of our time in business. It is hard to imagine moving forward without Evan walking through the door, ready for work as he did so reliably for all those years.

8 ½ is joining the folks at Joe’s Inn to celebrate and memorialize Evan on Monday, February 5 at 3pm. We hope to see you there.

(On February 5th, 8 ½ will be open 11am-3pm and closed for the remainder of that day)

The perfect accompaniment to your 8 ½ pint glass is Birra Flea, an Italian blonde ale that we now carry. The taste is fresh, light and well balanced between the bitterness of the hops and the sweetness of the malt. Located in the white wine cooler.
