A Hidden Treasure

“Old-time Supper Club”

By Sandy Zimmerman

I have always searched for “old-time” supper clubs where you can have fun,

meet friends, and not spend a lot of money.

Well, I found another one!

The Italian American Club of Southern Nevada is a hidden treasure to be enjoyed.

Best of all, the Italian American Club welcomes everyone whether they are Italian or not.

Tony Caterine, the General Manager,

known as “Little” Tony”, explained,

Tony Caterine, Known as Big Ton

“My father, Big Tony, the

Club Consultant,

knew all of the stars

because he was

involved in the

night club

and entertainment

business.

The pictures on the

cocktail lounge wall are all his.

You will see everybody from Little Richard, Bobby Daren, the Coasters, Four Tops, and others.

Today it is all about giving our guests a real experience with the food and atmosphere.

I put my food, sauce, chef, and kitchen-staff against anyone, anywhere, and a majority

of the time I’ll win.

It is not just about food, there are a lot of places you can go and get good food but

here you can enjoy the experience and have a good time.

We have a lot of fun.

The entertainment continues every night!

The Nostalgic Dance Society presents an evening of Dance with Melodious Jones Mondays.

This family band plays everything from Billie Holiday, music of the 20’s to today.

Wednesdays and Fridays- Mike Bari and Jenny Ford sing and entertain on the piano.

Throwback Thursdays brings the Speakeasy Swingers with their Jazz & Swing music.

Open Mic night is more than Karaoke every Saturday.

You will see Shiela almost become Lisa Minnelli, Judy Garland,

and other celebrities with her impressions.

Elvis Impressionist

Choose your fav Elvis song and their look-alike server, Joe will sing it for you.

Executive Chef Joe Friscia joked, “We usually serve an

8-10 ounce portion of salmon on Fridays and only 2 ounces the rest of the week.

I try to simplify my crab cakes recipe in order to keep the true crab flavor and

really taste the sweetness of the crab, not to camouflage the taste.

Some restaurants mix crab with so many things that you do not find much

crab in there but here, you have a lot.

You should see our

home-made jumbo raviolis,

between 4 and 5 inches

across and stuffed with

different types of cheese.

We will be starting

table- side Caesar salad and flambe 

desserts, mixing all of the ingredients

the table."

People love to watch the preparation and

 especially when the server lights the fire.

It is an experience, really dining.

I have recipes from all of the Italian

 provinces.

We also cook different styles to please

 everybody's palate.

If the guest likes fish prepared a certain

way, we alter our recipes to their liking.

You may wish more capers, fresh

 tomatoes, and red or white wine."

Little Tony was enthusiastic about their

food, "There are three things

you have to have- good bread especially in

 Italian restaurant,

good service, and good atmosphere.

We do not only serve Italian food but any

 style cuisine you want.

If you planning a party, meeting, wedding

 reception or event,

you can choose from Asian, French,

 Cajun, Arabian, you name the country

 and we can do it.

If you want DJ's, bands we will do

 anything to make it special.

After 10-12 years as caterers for private

jets, our chef can do anything even soul

food with black eyed peas, catfish, and

B.B.Q. ribs.

We just prepared a cat fish tasting for a

 wedding reception.

I am open to suggestions and very flexible.

People call to ask for price lists.

I don't believe in them because

everybody is different.

This is all about being fair with the

 economy the way it is.

I will pin my prices against anyone in

Las Vegas and beat anyone's price.

Little Tony explained, "Our club has

always been open to the public but people

do not know we have

an Italian restaurant.

You cannot miss our building, just look for

Zeus and the other Greek statue

outside."

For information, call 457-3866.

The Italian American Club of Southern

Nevada is located at 2333 East Sahara

 Avenue, near Eastern.

Open: 7 nights from 5 pm to whenever.
