San Bernardo

A New York PRODUCT YOU MIGHT RECOGNIZE….
San Bernardo Ice Cream Scoops Up Another Inc. 5000 Exclusive Ranking of Fastest Growing Private Companies

Inc. magazine named San Bernardo Ice Cream (www.SanBernardoIceCream.com) to its 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.  

 San Bernardo Ice Cream is bucking the trend. The Harvard Review shows that only 30% of family owned businesses survive into the second generation and remain family owned.  As the second generation owner and President of San Bernardo Ice Cream, Jonathan Tammara, is taking his family’s know-how in selling pint size scoops of tasty tradition from strength to a flavorsome industry path.

Since taking over the reins in 2010, Tammara has led the company to unprecedented levels of growth in several key areas, with a strong focus on retail and international sales. He has orchestrated a 300% increase in their international sales and launched the company’s new retail division for two brands, San Bernardo for the company’s signature, premium flavors and JT’s Ice Cream for their value brand.  Combined the two brands are now in nearly 1,000 stores in less than two years.

“Over the last few years we have been expanding into retail for the first time in 20 years and this has had a significant impact in our growth.  It will continue to be a focus for us going forward and the increased brand awareness is also helping to expand food service sales,” said Tammara. “We have had great success along the East Coast from the Mid-Atlantic up through New York and New England and have recently made strides in the Midwest. We are excited to see where the next few years will take us.

“We wanted to give the retail consumer a quality alternative to the premium brands at a non-premium price while offering them unique, appealing flavors. We did this by increasing our flavor selection in the premium and super premium markets.  Consumers are more savvy and sophisticated than ever before.  They want something more than just vanilla and we want to be the brand for consumers to escape from the everyday and try something different like Cactus Pear or Cannoli,” Tammara said.  It has been this foresight and ingenuity that has led to the growth that landed San Bernardo on this prestigious list.

“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”

Chocolate Pizzas from Adoro Lei

Giacamo Pizza 2

New York City’s Adoro Lei, known for its fresh, sexy, and fun take on pizza, recently announced a new savory and sweet pizza created in conjunction with neighbor and prominent Master Chocolatier, Jacques Torres.

Starting September 8, diners at Adoro Lei can savor the “Giacamo,” a unique pie incorporating Torres’ famed cocoa powder into Adoro Lei’s authentically-formed crust. This Neapolitan-style pizza is topped with two cheeses, caramelized onions, fig puree, bacon and ground Jacques Torres Chocolate cocoa nibs for an experience that plays with the senses.

“Chef Mario struck just the right balance by blending my cocoa powder into an expertly made crust and then topping the pizza with well-paired ingredients including Adoro Lei’s homemade mozzarella,” explains Chef Jacques Torres. “My first reaction when tasting it was, ‘Delicious!’   No doubt our fellow neighbors in Hudson Square, and all of New York City, will love this combination.”

Harriette Pizza

The second new Adoro Lei offering named the “Henriette,” is a sweet dessert pizza with Jacques Torres Chocolate’s famous chocolate ice cream, fresh cream, berries and chocolate drizzle on top a fried, cocoa Zeppole.

“These pizzas are an exciting extension to the innovative offerings we have at Adoro Lei. Chef Mario Gentile continues to elevate the concept of pizza, this time through quality products crafted by confectionary visionary, Jacques Torres,” says Michael DiBugnara, creative director for Adoro Lei.

Opened in February 2015, Adoro Lei is buzzing. With a string of celebrity sightings, spectacular reviews, and their upscale take on Italian classics, Adoro Lei is bringing new flavor to a hidden gem of Manhattan neighborhoods.

“As Hudson Square continues to grow and change, it’s important for local business to join talents and support one another,” said DiBugnara who is also a board member of the Hudson Square Connection.

Meaning I adore her in Italian, Adoro Lei loves showing adoration for its patrons. The ambience of the restaurant is polished and lively with a DJ booth in the center. Lead by Executive Chef Mario Gentile, Adoro Lei is making a splash in the New York City restaurant scene for its dedication to fresh ingredients, respect for traditional Italian cuisine and love for its customers. Chef Mario has been trained internationally by Michelin-star chefs and owns a restaurant of his own.

Both the “Giacamo,” and “Henriette” pizzas are available at Adoro Lei today along with Jacques Torres Chocolate’s world famous Blood Orange Sorbet.

About Adoro Lei
Adoro Lei is bringing New York City an elevated Italian dining experience, where gracious hospitality and delicious food meet fun music and good times. Through its focus on fresh ingredients made in-house daily, Adoro Lei is expanding its mission of unabated adoration to its patrons; living up to its name which means “I adore her” in Italian. Located in Manhattan’s Hudson Square neighborhood, the restaurant opened its doors in February 2015 with delectable creations from executive chef Mario Gentile, refreshing cocktails by renowned mixologist Elayne Duff, and walls boasting the emotive art of Dessie Jackson. Guests are embraced by a unique culinary experience at a truly upscale “pizza party” with pies name for both famous and infamous Renaissance era figures.

ARF BOW WOW MEOW BALL

ARF Bow Wow ad(2)

Saturday, August 20; Cocktails 6:30pm, Dinner/Dancing 8pm
ARF Adoption Center, 91 Daniels Hole Road, Wainscott

The Animal Rescue Fund of The Hamptons (ARF) will host the Bow Wow Meow Ball, to honor filmmaker Katharina Otto-Bernstein (Director, Absolute Wilson; Producer, HBO’s Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures) for her unwavering commitment to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons and animal welfare. Katharina has long been a supporter of ARF as an adopter and supporter of its benefit events, but perhaps her greatest gift to ARF has been the gift of food to the ARF animals through an annual donation to underwrite the cost of food for the cats and dogs at the ARF Adoption Center while they await their forever homes.

The evening’s celebration of ARF’s life-saving work will take place on ARF’s 22-acre campus in Wainscott.

Guests will enjoy cocktails, followed by dinner catered by Glorious Food within an elegant setting created by David Monn and Alex Papachristidis. Afterwards, the party will continue with dancing to music by the Peter Duchin Orchestra. Over 400 high-profile guests from New York and the Hamptons are expected to attend the magical night. All proceeds will benefit ARF, a regional leader in New York.

The animals in ARF’s care come from animal control centers, puppy mill rescue efforts, and from people who can no longer care for their pets. In 2016, ARF will intake over 1,600 dogs and cats at its state-of-the-art Adoption Center. ARF provides full medical care—including spaying and neutering—to all its animals in addition to humane care for their basic needs. Once medically evaluated and socialized the dogs and cats are made available for adoption at its Adoption Center and through its mobile adoption van and offsite events held across the greater New York region. Since its inception, ARF has rescued more than 22,000 cats and dogs and placed them with loving families.

Joining in the festivities this year will be a proud group of ARF cats and dogs available for adoption. The Bow Wow Meow Ball event is an important evening as it raises funds that are vital to the organization. The evening will also include a live auction with Auctioneer Benjamin Doller, a Vice Chairman of Sotheby’s, a silent auction and an online auction with charitybuzz.com. Experiences and packages include lunch for four with fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi; golf at the exclusive Maidstone Golf Club; VIP tickets to a Dr. Oz taping; and New York Knicks Game Experience which includes two tickets, gift bags, and meet and greet with Knicks Legends and a viewing of the “closed to the public” pre-game warm up on the court.

Bidders will have the chance to make offers online from August 10 – August 31 by visiting www.charitybuzz.com/support/arfhamptons.
