Tying the Knot



A wedding is one of life’s largest celebrations. As such, it requires precise planning and attention to detail. Tony Ricci’s seasoned and intuitive staff takes care of prospective brides and grooms by providing outstanding food and service for bridal showers, groom’s dinners and rehearsal dinners. 

The mouthwatering menu items can be tailored specifically to fit a couple’s tastes and Ricci himself consults food options to ensure an unforgettable culinary experience. “Being small and owner-operated gives us the ability to do things other corporations can’t do in the same way,” says Ricci, owner of Tony’s Steaks and Seafood. “We can run the gamut – we’re only limited by the creativity of our guests and the skill of our chefs.” 

Traditional items like seared tenderloin or filet mignon are popular as well as the innovative raw bar, which features colossal shrimp, Alaskan king crab and oysters on the half shell. 

Both restaurant locations offer intimate dining spaces for special occasion dinners. Lexington has a private room large enough to host wedding receptions with approximately 120 guests and space for a dance floor, band or any entertainment setup.

At Tony’s, you’re treated like part of the family, especially during this memorable moment in your life. The wedding staff is happy to share vendor recommendations and ideas with interested couples. When a rehearsal dinner package is booked, Ricci gives the couple a $150 gift certificate to use for a newlywed dinner following the honeymoon.  

“It’s the freshness of our ingredients and the quality of our food that separates us,” says Ricci. “And the fact that we will work with the couple to come up with the perfect menu to complement their special event.”
