Got a hankering for some delicious Italian cuisine? Two great restaurants, Sale e Pepe and D’Amico & Sons, are shaking things up with two new executive chefs at the helm to give their patrons even more of a pleasurable dining experience.
Sale e Pepe
Say, “Hello,” to Antonio Minichiello, the new executive chef at Sale e Pepe, a posh restaurant at Marco Beach Ocean Resort. The Italian native, who hails from the southern town of Avellino, recently told the Marco Eagle that he likes to take his patrons on a mouth-watering tour of his native country with his two new, six-course tasting menus, Avellino and Campania. “It’s like a trip that goes to Sicily, all the way through the south and stops in Rome, and up to Tuscany and finishes up in Milan.”
Growing up, Minichiello showed an interest in cooking and entered culinary school when he was 15. After graduation, he put his skills to use and, over time, his stellar performance landed him in restaurants like the Four Seasons in London, and the two-Michelin starred Four Seasons in Prague, Czechia. According to the Eagle, Minichiello has also served as executive chef at the Veranda at Four Seasons in Las Vegas.
D’Amico & Sons
Dishes on the menu at D’Amico & Sons in Naples taste that much sweeter with the new executive chef, Franco Paniccia, at the helm. This chef knows his way around a restaurant, from bussing tables at his family’s establishment at age 14, to waiting tables at other restaurants, to excelling at multiple roles within the kitchen, to demonstrating his brilliance at the executive chef level. Not only is Paniccia a master of Italian foods, but he’s got the chops for French, Peruvian, and Cuban cuisine, too. Visit this elegant restaurant and taste his Italian cuisine for yourself. Word on the street is that D’Amico’s Sunday brunch is not-to-be-missed.
