For forty-one years, Nino Selimaj has cultivated a talent like no other. With a humble beginning and a hard work ethic he has been able to do what few other restaurateurs have done, to warm his way into the hearts of most New Yorkers while establishing a restaurant with an incredible dedication to service and a great love for food. Over the years Selimaj has culled a large, loyal following with his magnetic personality, dashing good looks and impeccably tailored suits bearing a bejeweled American flag on his lapel. His upscale restaurant features extravagant dishes, fresh seafood, homemade pastas, table side cooking and live music.
