Salem's foodie appeal is going up in leaps and bounds.
Set your DVR, or your alarm clock, to catch Executive Chef/Owner Antonio Bettencourt of 62 Restaurant & Wine Bar on Wednesday night August 17th (that's tomorrow!) as he makes his national television debut on Rocco's Dinner Party on Bravo at 10:00PM eastern/9:00PM central.
According to IMDb, the episode titled Liza with a 'B!', pits healthy caterer Frank Picchione, opera singer Lucia Palmieri and restaurant owner/chef Antonio Bettencourt against each other as they vie to throw the best bash ever for Liza Minnelli's 65th Birthday. There's $20,000 at stake; as well as some serious bragging rights- as the chefs compete to throw a fete worthy of the incomparable Liza with a Z!
If you watch the video - keep watching through the commercials to see clips of Tony.
