We are so happy to be living “La Vita” in Sparta and look forward to serving our new community the best food we know how to create.
We are both graduates of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York with a combined 50 years+ of restaurant and food service experience. Specializing in Italian cuisine and products we have been a part of a combined 16 restaurant openings.
Most recently we opened and oversaw the operations of Rosemary’s West Village, Roey’s and Rosemary’s Tokyo and spent 8 years with Casa Nela Hospitality developing concepts and operating successful businesses. Before meeting while running Eataly Flatiron in NYC we gained our perspective and experience cooking and overseeing Sassi (Scottsdale,AZ), Eataly Flatiron, Del Posto, Lupa, Babbo, Minetta Tavern and others in New York City.
Alexandra grew up in Sparta, where her parents still reside. Our dream has been to relocate to the Sparta area for many years and with the birth of our son Vaughan Henry in 2018 the time was right to make the move to enjoy La Vita here in Sussex County.
