He and his brother have been in the restaurant industry since they moved to the U.S., starting in Middletown.

“We worked for other restaurants,” he said. “Stella D’Oro in Old Saybrook. A couple years we were in a restaurant in Florida called Molino’s. We also worked in Middletown at a restaurant named Luce.
