Elvis Cutra and Klevis Tana shared a similar foundation and passion during their childhoods, growing up in Albania. Raised by chefs and farmers, a love of growing fresh produce, creating wonderful meals and family experiences was instilled early on. Brought together when they married sisters, the bond and course was set. Their father-in-law and his brother Sergio Acappella and Tomassino (Timmy) Prengjoni, respectively, were the owner and chef of the iconic Acappella Restaurant in Tribeca. Working in the family businesses and some of New York City’s most celebrated establishments including, the Rainbow Room and Colicchio & Sons gave Cutra and Tana experience in service, cuisine and special events at the highest level. Raising their families in Westchester County, New York, Cutra, Tana and Prengjoni aspired to bring an exceptional dining experience to the region.
