Chef Benito Hissen’s gloriously old school restaurant, da Benito, is celebrating 34 years since its founding. Consistently delicious Italian cuisine, an award winning wine list, and service that is second to none make this restaurant one of New Jersey’s finest. Born in Northern Italy, Benito came to the United States when he was 16. He is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute, but before he earned that degree, he established his culinary foundation in a few imposing kitchens: one was the legendary (and now shuttered) Giambelli 50th Restaurant, long considered a sanctuary of elegance in New York City. Among his many guests have been Yogi Berra, Bill Clinton and Frank Sinatra.
Due to the nature of this very special event, attendance will be capped at 40 attendees.
