Julie Valenti started in the catering business about seven years ago with Serena’s Catering Hall in New Dorp. And in July she jumped into a new venture, Emilio’s Restaurant in Great Kills. “I’ve been in in the industry a long time. I really want to open a catering hall on the South Shore – that’s my dream,” said the Prince’s Bay resident.
