For thirty-five years, Nino Selimaj has cultivated a talent like no other. With a humble beginning and a hard work ethic he has been able to do what few other restaurateurs have done, to warm his way into the hearts of most New Yorkers while establishing an incredible dedication to service and a great love for food. Over the years Selimaj has culled a large, loyal following with his magnetic personality, dashing good looks and impeccably tailored suits bearing a bejeweled American flag on his lapel. His upscale restaurants have feature extravagant dishes, fresh seafood, homemade pastas, table side cooking and live music. He garnered much attention when he introduced the first ever $1,000 pizza — topped with six different kinds of caviar and Maine lobster – at Nino’s Bellissima Pizza.
