Battello, a new restaurant tucked away in unique marina location on the Newport Pier, celebrated its Grand Opening on Saturday night in Jersey City. Managing partners Cory Checket and Darren Conway unveiled Battello to over 450 of their closest friends and family. The night kicked off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by Jersey City Mayor, Steven Fulop. Guests enjoyed a variety of passed hors d’oeuvres from executive chef Ryan DePersio’s modern Italian seafood themed menu, raw bar and nautically inspired signature cocktails. Throughout the evening, Michael ”Mikey” Deleasa’s band performed in Battello’s main dining room overlooking Manhattan. In the back lounge area, guests enjoyed DJ sets by Kasey Berry late into early Sunday morning.
