A kitchen back in action: Romulo Mello with son and fellow chef, Christopher Mello, at new Mello Bistro at 1255 Bay St. (Staten Island Advance/Pamela Silvestri)
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Father and son chef team Romulo and Christopher Mello orchestrated a practice night for friends and family earlier this week at Mello Bistro. With the kitchen and cozy dining room readied for action, guests admired meticulously plated dishes and said “cheers” to this new venture at 1233 Bay St. in Rosebank.
Florida transplants, the Mellos recently moved to Eltingville. They are partners in the business with Lilian and Oscar Quintero, Queens residents who recently discovered Staten Island and like what they see.
