John Vitale

Caffe Anello - Westwood, NJ

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED DUE TO SEVERE WEATHER CONDITIONS. IT WILL NOW TAKE PLACE ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2015. 

As a young apprentice butcher at Jefferson Market, Salvatore Petruso delivered meats to James Beard at the icon’s Greenwich Village townhouse. Now at the helm of Westwood Prime Meats, Petruso is teaming up with chef John Vitale of Tuscan-inspired Caffe Anello for an evening that will showcase some of Beard’s butcher-shop favorites.
