There’s something about Sammy…
Salieri’s owner, the oldest and only family-run restaurant left on The Strand celebrates four decades on London’s most iconic theatre street.
His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex as Patron of The London Gardens Society became the latest dignitary to visit Salieri where he met Sammy andhis family in recognition of Sammy’s horticultural contribution to the Strand and for his support over many years for The London Gardens Society.
Located opposite the The Savoy Hotel, Salieri holds memories from the Golden Era of theatre and film to today as stars wined and dined in a relaxed environment and amongst Londoners and local business clientele.
Owner Sammy of Salieri said, “It’s not always been an easy task over 35 years but I know that hard work does and will pay off. Even now, at the age of 71 I wake up at 3am and I shop for the restaurant from the great markets of Smithfield and Covent Garden.
HM Lord Lieutenant of Greater London Ken Olisa Esq OBE said “It is great to see independent family businesses such as Salieri thrive in Westminster for nearly 4 decades I thank them for their business efforts and supporting the London Garden Society”.
Sammy added “I see a real recovery now in the economic climate and my wish is that small independent owners are supported so they can make their family businesses a success. The Earl’s visit is wonderful honour. I thank the Garden Society and all my local neighbours for their support. I hope we never lose the community we have developed here over the past 4 decades.”
