The Full Story
What began strictly as an investment in 2005 unearthed our life’s passion. Through a series of seemingly random opportunities, we, both disenchanted corporate America ladder climbers — whose successful track record in business included running global operations for Fortune 500 companies but not professional cooking or restaurant management — found us as executive chef, sommeliers, managers and marketers of our Mezzanotte Ristorante.
When creating Mezzanotte, we wanted more for our restaurant than only great food and wine. We wanted an establishment with soul. What distinguishes us from other restaurants is our passion and totally focused energy under-girding every aspect of our operation.
To only know the restaurant as a fine Italian eatery is somewhat inadequate. Mezzanotte is an extension of our lives. We invite every one to experience Mezzanotte like family. There are times of momentous celebration, times of sadness and worry, holidays abroad traveling and always there is eating and drinking wine together. Gathered around the table, sharing in one another’s lives, it is an authentic community of friends drawn together by Mezzanotte’s hospitality: An open invitation to newcomers and frequent diners alike to join in the comfort and soul that is the Mezzanotte experience.
