Networking Evening Social - April Edition!
Our Networking Evening Social events can provide an excellent opportunity to meet with, in a more relaxed and informal environment, like-minded Business Professionals as well as Civic and Community leaders.
This event is open to all Chamber members and their guests as well as visitors who would like to learn more about the Greater Northside Chamber of Commerce. Please bring plenty of business cards and an eagerness to share with others what it is that you do! And, if your not careful, you might just have a bit of fun to boot:-)
Yes, after what Chef Leo provided all of us at our N.E.S. last month, we just had to come back again this month! Nosh on his delicious (and extremely generous) appetizer spread along with sipping his carefully curated selection of beers and wines available to us at his tremendously reasonable prices!
Once you have had a taste of Chef Leo's food, we know that you will want to stay and partake in a delicious dinner from, simply, one of the best Italian Restaurants in our city.
Co-Founder and Chef Leo Coronel has been around restaurants for most of his life. (Generations of his family have been in the restaurant business.) Leo and his wife Zoly founded and established local favorite, Italian Cafe, in Spring, TX back in 2009 which continues to flourish to this day.
When seeking out a location in which to open a restaurant in the inner-city area of Houston, Leo and Zoly looked at a variety of communities. The moment that they saw the building located at 811 Collingsworth St. in the Near Northside (Former home of Red Ox Bar & Grill), however, they knew that they had found their location. Leo states: "We instantly fell in love with both the building and the community surrounding it. Our search for a location ended right then and there." Rocco's opened the middle part of this year to a capacity crowd at its Grand Opening and has been going strong ever since.
Leo and Zoly's vision for Rocco's is to utilize Leo's family recipes while adapting them (when needed) to meet modern tastes. Rocco's offers up delicious traditional Italian fare including a wide variety of pasta and pizza dishes. They also offer a wide, yet carefully selected, beer and wine selection to compliment their food offerings creating a fabulous dining experience. (In the Italian tradition, dinner should be more that just eating food!)
