My grandparents came to New York around the turn of the century.
My grandmother was a seamstress and my grandfather was a chef. In 1908, my grandfather and granduncle established Enrico & Paglieri Italian restaurant, at 64 West 11th Street in Greenwich Village. It remained in business for over 50 years, with many very famous patrons from all walks of life (i.e., politics, theater, etc.)

Most of their cooks came from Italy. One of the chefs my granduncle brought to this country was a man named Boyardee, who later had some extremely radical ideas about putting pasta in a can.
