Two Il Mulino chefs to open LIC Italian restaurant

April 14, 2014 By Christian Murray

Two long-serving chefs from the upmarket restaurant Il Mulino will be opening an Italian restaurant in Long Island City.

The restaurant will be opening at 21-50 44th Drive where Da Gianni’s Ristorante was located, next door to LIC Market.

The restaurant, to be called Il Falco, is likely to open in July or August, according to Segundo Tinishanay, a co-owner. It will serve northern and southern Italian food.

Tinishanay and his business partner Bolivar Perez come with a great deal of high-end Italian experience.

Tinishanay, who immigrated from Ecuador, has spent the past 30 years working at El Mulino (since he was 17), where he has risen through the ranks to be a chef.  He also trains the kitchen staff at other El Mulino restaurants in Miami and Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, Perez, who has worked at Il Mulino for 20 years, started as a line cook and worked his way up to become a chef. Perez has cooked for former president Bill Clinton as well as President Barack Obama.

“We have worked in the restaurant business a long time–since we were both very young,” Tinishanay said. “We want to open a place of our own and we feel Long Island City is a good place to do that.”

It was hard work to put the right restauranteurs in this location. Thanks for the early publicity on the restaurant. I was the BEAUDOINREALTY GROUP, who found these wonderful partners and leased the restaurant to them!

I wish them all the best in their new business. Thanks LICPost and GrubHub!
