JIM RETURNS TO PLAY "THE PIANO BAR" at CAMEO LOUNGE! - 5:00-9:00PM1160 First Avenue
King of Prussia Pennsylvania 19406
Jim plays a private family party 3 and a half hours from home in Albany NY at "Albany's Greatest Restaurant Legend" established over a century ago. Jim actually plays for a family with his last name--"Loftus"--and may learn there are some unknown relatives at the gathering.
Here's some info on this standout restaurant "Jack's Oyster House":
Opened in 1913 by Jack Rosenstein, the restaurant has been continuously operated by the same family and is now under the direction of grandson, Brad. Joined by Brad is Executive Chef Larry Schepici. Together, they work to create the ultimate dining experience for you each and every time you visit.
Chef Larry oversees the entire culinary team for the dining rooms and banquets. With over 25 years of culinary experience, Larry has showcased his talents throughout his career, garnering numerous awards on the way. In addition to winning Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals, he has been voted �Chef of the Year� by the American Culinary Federation. His travels led him to the Tavern at Sterup Square, located outside Troy, NY, where he won several awards, including earning the prestigious DiRonA Award of excellence for four consecutive years.
"As profiled in an upcoming 'Profiles in Leadership' article in the "Journal of Foodservice Business Research", Brad Rosenstein is depicted accurately as an industry pioneer. As the author, Professor Dennis Reynolds of Cornell University, notes, Mr. Rosenstein has redefined restaurant service to such an extent that his operation's reputation has achieved national acclaim. He is a mentor to his employees, a leader in his community, a champion of the foodservice industry-both regionally and nationally, and an icon of quality to those who have dined in his restaurant.
"The differentiating factor-one that separates Jack's Oyster House from almost any other restaurant in existence today is the service. When guests arrive, they are treated warmly and openly as though they are regulars, even if it's their first visit. Servers exude a passion for service, which is apparent from the way they pour the wine to their suave introduction of the dessert menu. In fact, service at Jack's is almost indescribable; it's friendly without being invasive, warm yet professional, comforting but not condescending.
