It all started with our Grandfather, Louis Pistone. He came to America from Sicily at 16 with his brothers, and started to build a new life. He opened his own business, The Pin Wheel Lounge, with the help of my Grandma and Father. We learned the business first-hand helping our parents at The The Inner Lobby and The Lincoln Inn on Public Square.
In 2000, we opened J.Pistone Market and Gathering Place in Shaker Heights. Offering “Chef-prepared foods” using the freshest of ingredients, a patisserie, wine shop and take-out items, the café is a warm, friendly place to “eat well.” Those too busy to cook or looking for items for a holiday meal, a gift basket or special occasion appreciate the quality of the takeout offerings. J. Pistone is also one of the premier caterers in this region. From dinner in the homes of local CEOs to holiday parties to black tie benefits, J. Pistone is known to bring an outstanding food experience with lots of value and service.
