BP votes calamari No. 1
Borough President James P. Molinaro can usually be spotted at this family-owned restaurant with his longtime companion, Joan Cusack, and his Deputy BP Ed Burke, enjoying a meal from the restaurant that has been a Clove Road destination for Islanders since October 1971, when husband and wife Anthony and Joanne D’Andrea opened their doors for business.
At the RoadHouse, the Clam Pie Draws the A-List
A family-run operation since Anthony and Joanne D’Andrea opened it in 1971, the RoadHouse is loved by locals for its clam pie and its meatballs. But in a borough where the car is king and parking can be a nightmare, the restaurant’s easy access off the Staten Island Expressway and ample parking lot may help explain its popularity.
Slice of food heaven in Staten Island: The Roadhouse
This meatball loving writer was fortunate to try what I consider the best meatballs on Earth! Made with pork, beef and fresh parsley and a perfectly added splash of marinara, these mind blowing meatballs will have you coming back for more. Also worth noting is the creative and unique cocktail menu and wine list.
RoadHouse restaurant hosting benefit for tot shot in eye
A Staten Island restaurant will hold a fund-raiser to benefit the family of a toddler shot in the head last month. The public is invited to the RoadHouse restaurant Wednesday for Samyah Bailey, the 20-month-old who lost her left eye after she was shot by a stray bullet as she sat in her stroller. “We’re having a fund-raiser to help the family cope with the medical bills and living expenses during this period,” said Mark D’Andrea, the RoadHouse’s owner.
Every restaurant has a story. Mark D’Andrea, the son of Anthony and Joanne D’Andrea has kept the legacy of the RoadHouse alive as they celebrate over 40 years in the business as a Staten Island staple. It is a true love story carried through with passion as they have continued to deliver their hometown natives and extending beyond the bridge with authentic Italian cuisine after migrating over from Italy.
