Eric Lomando began working in the restaurant industry as a bus boy when he was fourteen.  By the age of fifteen he was working in the kitchen.  After studying computer science for three years at SUNY Stony Brook he realized his heart belonged in the kitchen.  In 2001 he purchased Kitchen A Bistro and opened Kitchen A Trattoria in 2009.  For the last 6 years Kitchen A Bistro has been rated in the top 3 restaurants on Long Island by Zagat.  In 2009-2010 we were rated number one for food.   Kitchen A Trattoria received 3- 1/2 stars from Newsday upon opening. Both restaurants are committed to supporting farmers that practice responsible farming methods. Eric Lomando's love and passion for food is what keeps him continually striving for excellence.
