Another Saratoga culinary marvel who has stayed the course is Chef Danny Petrosino whose restaurant, Osteria Danny, which is run by his wife Patti, serves as a kind of family gathering each night it’s open. And it stays open as long as people want to eat. There’s no closing time. “As long as people keep coming, we keep serving,” he says. “This is our business. I support my family with this. This is not something I do as a hobby—which nowadays you find a lot of. Patti takes every reservation. Her cellphone number is the restaurant number.”
Chef Danny has been invited to the 2018 Academic Tables of the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenza Italy!
The team of Danny Petrosino, sous chef Jamie Norton -University alumna, family friend Jackie Rothong – formally the head food stylist of the hit tv show “The Chew”, and our friend, Ace Endico representative – Mario Tricomi are heading to Italy!
We have received an invitation to The University of Gastronomic Sciences, the home of Slow Food in Pollenzo, Italy. Danny will be participating in the Academic Tables program as a guest chef.
Each year the University invites 25 chefs from around the world to participate. This year Danny will be the only American chef taking part in the program.
While at the University the team will be cooking lunch for 250 students while staying true to the slow food philosophy of “good, clean, and fair” and as always in Osteria Danny fashion - staying original. A short film will be made by the university and placed in the UNISG Film office about Chef Danny’s visit for the students who want to see “behind the scenes”. Danny will also participate in a round table discussion with students of the university to share his experiences and thoughts on food. And finally, there will be a official moment of signing the Academic Tables poster with the dean; this board is a proud reminder of all of the the guest chefs who have shared in this amazing project. Danny’s name will forever be with chefs like Alice Waters, Ferran Adrià, Alex Atala, Luiz Aduriz Andoni, Salvatore Toscano, Michel Bras, Massimo Spigaroli, Massimo Bottura, and many many more.

We teamed up with the American Cancer Society and went pink with the #realmenwearpink campaign.
Along with enjoying a night of great food, drinks, raffle prizes we were able to raise money for a great cause.
