"Working in my family's restaurants was the greatest training that i could have received. I started washing the floors and over time my family gave me more and more responsibility. it was exciting to work in such a fast paced environment. My family's restaurants were always busy, and being able to see how to work under the stress and pace of a busy restaurant was great."
"Our buffalo mozzarella gets flown in from Napoli every few days. Our organic Dan Marzano tomatoes also come from Naples. Our meats come from everywhere - from upstate New York to Nebraska."
"We had an a-list celebrity athlete come into the restaurant last week. He told me he had a passion for cooking so we suited him up in the chef's attire and had him cook up pasta bolognese...the funny part was he was so tall that his head kept bumping into the sautee pans hanging from the kitchen hood!
