Our Story

Family (famiglio)

Donato and George… our grandfathers. Lifelong friends who grew up together in New York’s Little Italy, back when it was still a real neighborhood.

A neighborhood alive with street vendors and stickball games (at least until your mother stuck her head out the window and called you for supper). A neighborhood where Italian grandmothers in black mourning dresses guarded their Sunday gravy recipe like a precious family heirloom. 

A neighborhood where the front stoop was the scene of great debates over which baseball team had the best center fielder and the fire escape witnessed many a first kiss – including our parents.

Tonight, we invite you to take a short subway ride to that time and place and spend an evening with us back in the old neighborhood.
