LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Mike Langner, manager of business interests for Fabio Viviani and Jacopo Falleni, announced this week that Barsac Brasserie, a fixture in south San Fernando Valley for the past 21 years, will be under new ownership and new management. With the collaboration of three restaurant and bar experts: Chef Fabio Viviani, Top Chef Season 5 breakout star and Fan Favorite, Jacopo Falleni, award-winning mixologist, and Lisa Long, long-standing owner/manager of Barsac for 21 years. Grand Opening for Firenze Osteria is Saturday October 24th with complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM. The public is invited to attend.
The new Firenze Osteria is strategically positioned to move into a new era of ownership and management. Driven by the Television and Film Industry from its beginnings and situated a stone’s throw from every major network headquarters in Southern California, Firenze Osteria will only grow its clientele and expand its appeal to include Hollywood and Universal City young adults under the new owner/managers.
With major interior renovations and the creation of a private meeting/party room upstairs, the new Firenze Osteria will dazzle.
Since his television debut as a stand-out star on Top Chef Season 5 and the popularity of his new cookbook, Cafe Firenze Cookbook, Chef Fabio Viviani’s celebrity has skyrocketed. Chef Fabio also has filmed the pilot for a new television show to air on BravoTV this fall/winter.
Chef Fabio’s new cookbook, released on July 22, 2009, co-written with business partner and best friend since the age of twelve, Jacopo Falleni has been a huge success.
