Finding fine dining venues is becoming more and more difficult, but don’t dispair as Mike Moscatiello recently opened the Roosevelt Room, just outside of Troy, NY. Mike’s family has been in the hospitality industry for decades and his father’s eponymous Italian restaurant is right across the street. Mike secured the services of Noah Frese, a brilliant young chef who worked for Daniel Boloud and later at 677 Prime. The restaurant has garnered rave reviews since opening and both Mike and Noah are excited to be hosting a Chaine dinner.

Maitre Rotisseur Paul Dimm and Maitre Restaurateur James Warren will welcome us to the Scarlet Knife in a location that was formerly a K-Mart store. After extensive and extremely tasteful renovations, the location has been magically transformed into an exceptional venue, pleasing to the eye and the palate. Our Mondiale dinner there in March of this year was an unqualified success and we are all looking forward to revisiting this now popular restaurant.
