L to R: Jim Switzer, Ray Cedruly, Frank Robusto, Ontario Town Supervisor, Mike Brandes, and Terry Beardsley, owners

Ontario – January 26, 2018. The Ontario Chamber of Commerce was pleased to welcome the town’s newest food establishment, Tuscany to Tennessee, with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Terry Beardsley and Mike Brandes, both from Walworth, NY, are the proud owners. Mike, who is the chef, said the name Tuscany to Tennessee came to him one morning around 3 a.m.   He lived in Europe as a kid for about three years when his father was an international salesman and has been to the Tuscan region in Italy many times.   Plus, he has visited almost every state in the United States.

Mike attended Paul Smith College for culinary arts, but learned most of his cooking skills from his Polish mother and grandmother. Everything is homemade and from scratch at Tuscany to Tennessee. Both Terry and Mike like happy customers and they try to do their best to make that happen with every visit. They describe their menu as “homemade comfort food” with such things as soup, chili, jambalaya, Tuscan chicken wrap, apple hickory smoked pulled pork, NYC Ruben, NY strip steak, Italian or chicken sausage, Zwiegles hots, burgers, onion rings, fries, and Poutine.
