Celebrity sightings in Connecticut! Mohegan Sun’s newest, and hippest eatery, Ballo Italian Restaurant & Social Club, hosted a few big names last night that were on hand to celebrate the casino’s 15th anniversary.
Food Network star and owner of Bar Americain at the casino, Bobby Flay, stopped by Ballo to sample some of the menu. Chef Flay sipped on an aperol spritz cocktail and snacked on a sausage pizza. Later, he sampled the chicken parmagiana, linguine with clams, those delicious pork meatballs, and spaghetti pomodoro.
As if one celebrity wasn’t enough, around 11 p.m., Susan Lucci and Regis Philbin, with eight guests in tow, had dinner in one of Ballo’s private dining areas. Philbin enjoyed a cosmopolitan and Lucci a Perrier Jouet. For dinner they enjoyed an antipasto appetizer with fresh proscuitto de parma.
Ballo is sure to have many more celeb sightings, and who knows, you might be lucky enough to run into one of your favorite stars. If you’re in Norwalk with nothing going on for the evening, it’s time to get up and party! Make the mini roadtrip to celebrate at Mohegan Sun and be sure to have dinner at Ballo while you’re there.
