    ... I too had family who lived there Brandon
     
  7. I was the Executive Chef at Porcelli's for 5 years(right across from Presti's)now owned by Antonio Callandra and Rick Selerno, not sure what the heck is goin on down there now but for my money, dinner was at Valerios, and drinks where at Maxi's. If you stop into Maxi's ask for Chef Gilbert(pronounced Jo-Bear)he cooks some mean food and they pour great martinis. Tell him that Chef Kevin sent you
