II Tony's New Orleans Style Marinara
Where Sicily meets New Orleans, this New Orleans style marinara is a staple sauce at II Tony's restaurant. It is made with vine ripened Italian style plum tomatoes, Italian herbs and spices along with fresh vegetables and cold-pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Two Tony's Restaurant was co-founded in 1987 by Tony Montalbano Sr. and Tony Montalbano Jr. Tony Jr. grew up in his father's family restaurant located in the New Orleans French Quarter. This is where he cultivated his passion and talent for preparing mouth-watering dishes. The natural progression for the Two Tonys was to open their own restaurant in this neighborhood. After opening Two Tony's Restaurant in 1987, it quickly gained a following of locals and tourists alike. Seven years later; after developing a successful business, the father and son team relocated to an area on Lake Pontchartrain known as Bucktown. It had a handful of restaurants and in 1994, Two Tony's joined the ranks.
