What are Tony Mantuano's favorite cities?
I like to visit Venice, but I only like to visit in the wintertime, when all of the tourists are gone. Not all, but a vast majority of the day-trippers aren’t there. It’s just a great city in the wintertime. Many of the hotels there are fantastic.
I like London an awful lot. I think that the food in London is so incredible right now and there are so many international restaurants. There are great Spanish restaurants, great Italian restaurants, and what they’re doing with English food these days is way beyond what anyone might think would happen 10 or 15 years ago. I certainly like to visit San Francisco and the Bay Area just because of the access to great local ingredients and the way the chefs are working there.
