Tom Sperduto

Tom’s career in hospitality started in his hometown of Northport, New York. It was there, under the tutelage of Dino Pinelli, where he learned the basics of running and managing a restaurant. Tom was a school teacher for several years, and during that time he continued to work summers and weekends at Danny Meyer’s Eleven Madison Park.
It was at Eleven Madison where he was introduced to enlightened hospitality. After five years, Tom decided to curtail his teaching career and put his full energy into the restaurant business. Tom has worked as floor manager at Clinton Street Baking Company, opening GM of Community Food and Juice, and later Assistant General Manager of craftbar. Tom loves a negroni.

In the last decade Bob, his brother John, and his wife Patty have opened Slope Cellars and Windsor Wines, two wine shops focused on artisanal wines and spirits. Bob loves a cold, spicy, Virgin Mary on Sunday morning right before church.
