BRIDGEPORT — Oneida Indian Nation is celebrating the grand opening of Perfect Pour Café, the new coffee house and wine bar at Point Place Casino in Bridgeport.
The beautifully designed café features an innovative menu of gourmet coffee, exclusively from Utica Coffee, coffee-inspired cocktails, wines, and beers, as well as handmade pastries and artisan sandwiches from the same award-winning culinary team at Turning Stone.
Oneida Indian Nation officials said Perfect Pour is primed to be the area’s next hotspot, offering the ideal setting for guests to enjoy a gourmet cup of coffee during the day, relax for a mid-afternoon break, and indulge with a specialty cocktail in the evening.
“Grand openings are always a special celebration in Central New York, and the opening of Perfect Pour Café means that much more as it signifies the beginning of our collective recovery,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “Perfect Pour Café is a unique destination for guests to enjoy some much-needed time with friends, while still remaining safe.”
Oneida Indian Nation officials said they remain committed to supporting local businesses, which has been even more critical to the region during this time of recovery. Perfect Pour Café will feature gourmet coffee from Utica Coffee, beer, wine, and spirits from several local wineries, breweries, and distilleries, including Middle Ages Brewing, and handmade sandwiches made fresh daily.
Many of the design elements were sourced locally including the elegant white marble and tiles for the main coffee bar from Syracuse-based Roma Tiles and interior and exterior signs created by Canastota-based Victory Signs, with the entire interior design from one of Syracuse’s leading designers Sheila Aggarwal from Zausmer, Frisch, Scruton, and Aggarwal. The construction was managed by Syracuse’s Hayner Hoyt Corporation.
Point Place Casino’s new café is a continuation of significant investments made by the Oneida Indian Nation into the property, which recently celebrated its 3rd anniversary. In those three years, Point Place Casino has expanded its gaming floor twice, added The Lounge with Caesars Sports, the extremely popular sportsbook, and is now opening the new Perfect Pour Café.
The innovative drink and cocktail menu at Perfect Pour Café includes “The Dude from Dublin,” a fresh cold coffee brew with bourbon and topped with cream, and “Barista’s Brew,” a fresh cold coffee brew, mixed with Patron XO Café, Frangelico, Disaronno and black walnut bitters and cream. Developed by the same award-winning culinary team at Turning Stone, the food and pastry menu at the new café features salads including Smoked Turkey Cobb, Arugula Cauliflower Rice, and Grilled Chicken and an assortment of freshly made sandwiches such as Chimichurri Chicken with spinach, pepper Jack cheese in a wrap, a Cuban with sliced pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and pickles, and a Balsamic Chicken with arugula, mozzarella, on multigrain ciabatta bread.
