"The Complete Hostess" 1937 QUAGLINO, Giovanni


Quaglino’s was founded in 1929 by Giovanni Quaglino: a restaurateur hailing from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy. Quaglino was an exceptionally talented waiter – by 17 he was maître d’hôtel at the grand Martinez Hotel in Cannes – but he seemed in no hurry to start his own business. Instead he came to England and The Savoy, where he worked with another maître d’hôtel, named Sovrani. When Sovrani left to open his own restaurant in Jermyn Street, Giovanni, or John as he was mostly known went with him.
