In celebration of their recent opening, The Briarcliff Manor and Antipasti di Napoli, formerly Maison Lafitte and most recently The Haymount House, hosted a Block Party to spend time getting to know their immediate neighbors. By welcoming the residents of all the surrounding streets near the restaurant located at 25 Studio Hill Road in Briarcliff Manor, owner Perry DiNapoli went above and beyond to give his neighbors a special invite only event. DiNapoli of the DiNapoli Restaurant Group and former owner of Antonees on Broadway, personally went door to door with his team to deliver invitations and shake hands with local homeowners.

The special Block Party event gave the invited residents a sneak peek prior to the official grand opening and guests were able to tour the new catering venue, restaurant and beautiful grounds to see all that the new dining destination has to offer. The Block Party, held this past Monday featured complimentary refreshments, hor dourves, dinner and deserts for guests to sample. Live entertainment was provided by The Mike Risko Band of Ossining and specialty drink samples by Bacardi were available. Event sponsors Linda Rey of Rey Insurance and George Cutrone of David Lerner Associates were on hand at the Block Party to great guests as well. Ossining MATTERS Education Foundation was at the event selling raffle tickets for prize baskets donated by Wondrous Things in Briarcliff and DiNapoli himself, who contributed 100% of the proceeds back to the local foundation.

DiNapoli brings to the table over 25 years’ experience in the restaurant and catering industry and his passion and unparalleled people skills continually leave a lasting impression with all his customers and the community he serves. “Our unique Block Party event gave us an opportunity to build relationships with the homeowners that surround our establishment. We are looking forward to continue to welcome our neighbors and become an integral part of the Briarcliff community. “
