World-class chef, entrepreneur and Food Network personality Robert Irvine visited Stew Leonard’s in Paramus Oct. 14 to sign bottles of his hand-crafted Irvine’s Spirits.
During the event, wine specialists from the store offered customers a complimentary taste of taste Irvine’s Spirits vodka and gin gimlets, which were precision distilled at Boardroom Spirits in Lansdale, Pa.
In addition to hosting “Restaurant: Impossible,” Irvine runs several successful restaurants, including Public House at the Tropicana in Las Vegas and Fresh Kitchen within the Pentagon.
Besides Boardroom Spirits, Irvine owns FitCrunch, which sells protein bars, powders and snacks and Robert Irvine Foods, which makes prepared, restaurant-quality dishes available in grocery stores.
A portion of proceeds from all of Irvine’s businesses benefit the Robert Irvine Foundation, a nonprofit that gives back to first responders and U.S. military members.
