Angelo Romano, Chef and Owner of Paradiso Ristorante in Lake Worth Florida is renowned for his attention to quality, fresh ingredients and over 20 years of inspiring and diverse fine Italian cuisine. Angelo’s restaurant boasts an extensive menu selection that is accompanied by a fine wine-by-the-glass list of over 15 wines and Champagnes.
Freshness and presentation are of the highest importance to Chef Angelo. That’s why his newly renovated bar and lounge features a new Le Verre de Vin Pod Bar.
“In a high-end restaurant like ours, it is important that we show that we take care of our products. Our guests must be able to visually see that at our bar display. Once their interest has been peaked they become more interested in trying new wines that they wouldn’t ordinarily select,” He said.
The freshness factor is also critical to ensuring that the guests’ first impression is a positive and lasting one. The freshness, temperature, and presentation become part of that memorable experience.
Chef Angelo continues,”We’ve had a Le Verre de Vin Pod Bar for [a few] months and the feedback has been positive. Now we are testing new labels. This allows our guests to sample different wines without buying the entire bottle, and we do this without taking a loss on the remaining bottle of wine. Once we open a new bottle, re-seal it, and then place it in the Pod Bar, we’re confident that it will remain perfectly preserved for weeks after. It’s a first-class system.”
“Unlike other wine preservation systems, Le Verre de Vin gives us the opportunity to really showcase and offer trade-up selections. I look forward to expanding our pairings particularly our Champagnes and red wines with our oyster and caviar menus.”
Fred Bollaci of CEO and President of Fred Bollaci Enterprises, reviewed the Italian culinary ‘Paradise’ saying: “I did enjoy looking, and was very impressed with the depth and breadth of Angelo’s collection, and it was obvious on the first sip that his entire wine program was “top-notch,” judging by the elegant glass, perfect temperature, and excellent selection for a decent price we were offered from a list that contained many superb vintages and corresponding prices…” CLICK HERE to read the full article.
