Vilson "Vinny" Dautaj is the founder of Fratellini RG, Inc. and has over 20 years of experience in the food service industry. Immigrating to the United States in 2011 from Florence, Italy, he worked in the restaurant sector in New York prior to launching his own company. Since the spectacular launch of the TWA Hotel Food Hall in the spring of 2019, Vinny has been a part of it.
Fratellini RG began operating multiple kiosks in the TWA Food Hall since 2019. In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, he extended working hours to satisfy the high demand.
With carry-out and online ordering already established before the outbreak, 'Grab n' Go eating enabled Vinny's Panini NYC to remain open during the pandemic and boosted its expertise as this quick high-quality dining continued to adapt. Fratellini RG handled these unpredictable circumstances with effectiveness by being flexible and adaptable. Airline employees, first responders, and other organizations (such as utility personnel flown in to aid PSEG following Hurricane Henri) temporarily stationed at the hotel were supplied with online ordering and dining options. Nowadays Vinny's Panini NYC is serving all customers who want to enjoy the finest 'Grab n' Go' Italian & American Cuisine.
