This is a particularly meaningful day for the Alenik family because this is the first Father’s Day without chef and founder, David Alenik, who died in 2016.
"As difficult as it may be, we want to spend this day honoring his memory in his favorite place, the Pasta Shop," said his daughter, Bianca Alenik. "Both of our parents spent the last 28 years cultivating a space of warmth, love and wonderful Italian cuisine. Our family along with everyone who knew and loved Chef David will cherish this space for many more years to come. So let us all take this day, for even a moment, to send love and gratitude to our fathers, whether they are here with us or only in our hearts."
