“Think Bagatelle meets Cipriani meets St. Tropez,” Porporino told Radar about the remodel. “There will be no other spot that can even come close to compare, that I can assure you of.”

RHONJ stars Gorga and Margaret Josephs recently dined in the Jersey fave.

Porporino is an executive producer of the reboot of Discovery Channel’s hit series American Chopper and is producing partners with celebrity comedian George Lopez.

With the unique “Fresco Da Franco” dining experience, the East Coast eatery had Joe Budden and his fiancé Cyn in filming an episode of Love & Hip Hop New York as well as Kim Kardashian’s bestie Foodgod Jonathan Cheban stop by.
