Nell's Restaurant

Join us at Nell's as we learn about and pay tribute to the Rao Family and their legacy at Rao's Restaurant, one of the most sought-after restaurants in Manhattan. Founded by Charles Rao in 1896, the tiny Italian restaurant was an instant success. The sons of Charles, Louis and Vincent Rao, along with the help of Vincent's wife, built on the strong foundation created by their father to create one of the pinnacles of Italian American cuisine. Their recent release of a cookbook has inspired chef Philip Mihalski to organize a dinner in their honor.
