Cuban Mediterranean Bistro
My career in the restaurant industry began at the age of fourteen working at McDonald’s and moved on to Friendly’s in Syosset. I remained there for seven years & during that time I was exposed to all the facets of the restaurant business: waiter, line cook, food ordering, and management. I was fortunate to have had an excellent general manager, Tina Forgione, who instilled valuable skills that I continue to use to this very day.
