2020 Partners

CATERING PARTNER

In 1985, at the young and ambitious age of 24, Steve DiFillippo purchased a locally-owned family restaurant called Davio’s on Newbury Street in Boston’s trendy Back Bay. As Boston’s culinary tastes evolved, he transformed the location into a destination. He retooled the menu, the space, the wine list. The new Davio’s soon garnered rave reviews.

The idea behind Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse was simple, regional Italian foods with a focus on the grill. Everything made by hand from the best ingredients. Serve everything from aged steaks to simple-yet-unique pasta creations. Mirror this philosophy in the kitchen with our expert and attentive staff in the dining room, seeing to your every need and taking pride in your enjoyment of the meal. Steve has since opened locations in Foxborough, MA (Patriot Place), Philadelphia, and a new location in Atlanta.

LIQUOR PARTNER

We are a father and son team (David & David II) who share a dream and a passion. Our love and appreciation for quality spirits sparked the dream of bringing small batch spirits to our community. It all started during a family dinner with a joking statement of “lets make our own whisky.” With father and son both having the fascination to see how things are made, a half-hearted joke turned a bit serious over the years. We explored the idea by researching, studying, and some say obsessed over how to build a still and process alcohol. Soon enough the saying “From hobby, to obsession, to profession” was coined and Wiggly Bridge Distillery, with some effort, was created.

Our Wiggly Bridge Distillery Spirits are distilled in small batches using our handmade copper pot still.  Yes it is a handmade, hand rolled, hand riveted copper still. Some would say it is a labor of love. We chose this route because it yields superior taste found only in authentic hand crafted spirits
