BAH at Quercibella

News Date: 

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

 “We believe in a restaurant that you really need to put your passions into,” Brighenti-Gregoire said. “We just have so much passion and fun doing this.”  

And on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 from 5:30 to 7:30, that passion for fun and food came through at our Business After Hours event for the New Hartford Business Council.

If you weren’t there, you were as square as the the “beautiful oak” tables which are the Italian namesake for the restaurant.  In attendance were over 55 members of the NHBC and the Canton Chamber of Commerce, (CCOC) and we welcomed a few new members.  We know who likes to have a good time while making wonderful business connections.  Quercibella is cozy and with so many folks there if you didn’t make some new friends, it was because you didn’t make the effort.

If you have not been to Quercibella you are missing out on a hidden gem here in New Hartford.  The restaurant is located on the beautiful Farmington River in New Hartford on Rt. 44, between Marandino’s Plaza and the Pine Meadow Post Office.   Owners, Carl Rynecki and Maria Brighenti, will give you a little piece of Italy in your own backyard.  The pizzas were abundant and the spirits were flowing both in the cups and in each and everyone’s frame of mind.  I do not think you saw an unhappy face in the restaurant.  Visit their website at or call 860.238.4261.

At each BAH we choose three business cards of attendees.  The first gets a business card sized ad in New Hartford Plus.  The next two names pulled each get two weeks as the featured member on the New Hartford Business Council website.  Congratulations to our winner of the ad, Ed NeJaime of NeJaime’s package store on Rte. 44 in the Pine Meadow section of New Hartford!  Our two new featured business members will be Greg Hendricks of Liberty Mutual and Linda Pulford of Farmington Valley Organizers.

Be sure to follow the NHBC on our website, and NHBC’s Facebook page and sign up to be on our mailing list.  We think you’ll be happy to be a part of this wonderful group of business owners trying to make New Hartford a better place and we know we would love to have you on our team.

For more information on joining the council contact and if you would like to be the host of one of these awesome events contact  Currently, the two chambers are running a special for new members.  Our Chamber$aver CCOC/NHBC JOGO (Join One Get One Free) runs until the end of March.  The program allows you to join the Canton Chamber of Commerce at the regular price and to receive a free membership in the NHBC for one year.

We are looking forward to having you on board!
