Tuesday Night was a big night and victory for Buffalo, NY on CNBC's Show 'Restaurant Startup'! According to WGRZ:

The two owners, Peter Cimino and Chris Dorsaneo competed for financial backing on the show, and they won.

 

Cimino told 2 On Your Side by phone Monday night how it all came to be.

 

"It was pretty random. I was just watching an episode of Shark Tank and kind of in passing, and a commercial popped on about this new show, Restaurant Startup," he said. "When you have reality TV coupled with competition, and timing and cooking and stuff, it's a whole different ballgame."

 

They hosted a free viewing party Tuesday night at the North Park Theatre.

 

"Just making it to Hollywood is a huge win for the city in general, and I hope we can make people proud," Cimino said.
