BrandCJAY 35th Birthday Dinner At Nonna’s Table Restaurant

BrandCJAY 35th BirthdayEarlier this week I was asked to host a birthday celebration for a very good friend of mine BrandCJAY. Held at Nonna’s Table, this was an invite only dinner prepared by James Beard Award Winning Chef Ron Suhanosky. Needless to say the entire night was a moment.

Nonna’s Table is an Italian food shop that closed its’ doors for the event, as soon as you walked in you felt an intimate old Italian feel.

For our first official course we were treated to a great opener of scallops & gnocchi with black garlic topped with grated cheese.

    Looks like everyone enjoyed the meal and company. Is Nonna’s Table where I can find sample chef Ron’s creations or do I need to look elsewhere?

    1. Yes. Chef Ron Suhanosky left the Sfoglia restaurant to start Nonna’s Table. I will be reviewing his book “The Italian Table” next week.
