Today I’m speaking with Sal and Christina from ITA Kitchen located in Bay Shore, NY. In this dual interview, Sal shares his passion for food while we discuss their unique menu items like Rabe & Sausage Eggrolls. It’s a funny and touching story how he came up with the idea.
His wife Christina handles the business side of the restaurant and talks to us about their early successes having not even been in business for 1 year. What’s truly interesting is hearing how the restaurants in Bay Shore NY have formed a collective to support one another, even before the COVID pandemic hit Long Island.
They made the difficult decision to close in order to protect their staff and take time to pivot their menu during this. They are even giving our listeners a secret menu item. All we can say is if you like penne vodka and grilled cheese you will want to listen to this entire episode.
