 17 Summer Restaurant, the new brick and mortar endeavor of brother/sister team of Jenna & Joseph Cuccia (of Joseph Cuccia Catering),  opened on Friday February 20, 2015.

With a "hyper seasonal menu," will change every 6-8 weeks. Executive Chef Joseph Cuccia celebrates each ingredient, making everything in house that can be made in house!  “Food," says Chef Joseph, "is not meant to be pretentious. Food is meant to enhance your senses, heighten your emotions, and transport you to places you have never been.”

The open kitchen concept leaves nothing to the imagination. “We want to feed your soul, excite your palate and entertain you,” says Jenna Cuccia. 

In other big news for the Cuccia siblings, Jenna and Joseph will be vying for an investment from world renowned restaurateur Joe Bastianich and celebrity chef Tim Love on CNBC’s hit show Restaurant StartUp on Tuesday March 10th at 10pm.
