The Story of Great Restaurants

The founders and creators of Great Restaurants NJ are Robert Kash, Joseph Mosco, and Dennis Tafuri. Rob and Joe, childhood friends started their first restaurant shortly after graduating from college, despite their family's advice. Their very first concept restaurant, Café Colore started in 1992 sparked their interest into making the restaurant industry a career. Over the years, the founders of Great Restaurants NJ welcomed seasoned restaurateur Dennis into their team, creating multiple unique dining concepts in Central Jersey.

Eventually their many unique restaurant ideas blossomed into what they now call "Great Restaurants NJ" which over the years has been responsible for hatching as many as 10 unique concepts. Café Colore and 75 South were their first two eateries started early in the Great Restaurants group. Shortly after came Metropolitan Café, Tuscany Café, Nonna's Citi Cucina, Bigger Than a Bread Box and their premier off site catering company, On Location Catering, which is responsible for producing magnificent galas and fundraisers, backyard barbecues and intimate cocktail parties.
