Talk & Tasting: CEO/Chef Steve DiFillippo, "It's All About the Guest"
Do you love start-ups? Do you love food? The Boston Innovation and Entrepreneurship Network (BIEN) welcomes Chef/CEO Steve DiFillippo, the consummate restaurateur and founder of the award-winning Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse.

Description: This exciting, story-driven, fast-paced memoir and business book features intensively practical business-and-life advice. The 5.9 million restaurant workers who dream of opening their own restaurant will value this book, but so will anyone who loves food and the restaurant industry, and who wants to make money and have the time of their life while doing it. It even offers twelve signature Davio’s recipes, from Davio’s signature Kobe Meatballs and famous Bolognese, to Julia Child’s favorite Angel Hair Pomodoro.  

It’s All About the Guest shares DiFillippo’s experiences on every interpersonal, financial, managerial, philosophical, emotional and technical lesson learned and encountered along his way to becoming a successful restaurateur. He also recounts the evolution of the Davio’s brand from its small location on Newbury Street as a family-owned restaurant with local charm to its transformation as a popular fine dining destination. In his engaging manner, DiFillippo shares the stories behind such strategic business decisions such as reinventing the menu (including inserting many reincarnations of his mother’s and grandmother’s recipes), expansion, developing restaurant space, creating an award-winning wine list, and much more!
