He took me on a personal tour of his restaurant and kitchen; prepared a delicious lunch for me and my Mom; and gave me some important advice about becoming a chef and running my own restaurant one day.
I like eating at restaurants that make you feel like you are in a different world and the Anaheim White House Restaurant is just like that! Like the name says, it looks like a capital building.
The food is absolutely delicious and it’s plated like art.
He even uses miniature, edible Towers of Pisa’s and Coliseums as part of the presentations. Chef Bruno made us a sample plate with different pasta dishes for us to try.
We even tried the White Chocolate Mashed Potatoes. I had never heard of chocolate being used in mashed potatoes. It sure was good!
The service at the Anaheim White House Restaurant is first-class all the way, and the restaurant is full of interesting history.
Chef Bruno and Anaheim White House have hosted celebrities and diplomats from all over the world, and there are framed photographs of his guests displayed on the walls of the restaurant, as well as photos of celebrities that were taken and donated by world famous photographer Greg Gorman, who has dined at Anaheim White House many times.
I think it’s pretty cool that an Italian chef who couldn’t speak English before he moved to the United States and who still has his great Italian accent, owns a restaurant that looks like and is called the “White House”.
That’s what the USA is supposed to be all about right? People from all over the world coming together to build a better life for themselves and helping others along the way.
