VINCENT PALUMBO, GENERAL MANAGER - PLAZA HOTEL
FAVORITE FOOD MEMORY
My Mom is a phenomenal cook. I can tell countless stories of the amazing meals she has made and continues to prepare to this day. So it’s somewhat strange that one of my best memories was from a simple slice of pizza.
I could of been in kindergarten and I was in the school cafeteria waiting on line to get lunch.
The staff attendant sees me and tells the other staff member that the pizza the parent brought in was for me.
It was only a slice of store brought Pizza, but for some reason it made me so happy. I appreciate it even more now that I realize she did not drive and had to walk it to school while she had by younger brother with her..
WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO
I could say it’s the location. The Plaza Hotel is one of the most Iconic Hotels in the world, or I could say it’s the unforgettable guests and events which we host. I could also say it’s the people that I work with that are dedicated professionals with boundless energy and drive.
Or I can say it’s all the above and consider myself extremely fortunate to be part of this…I’ll stick with the latter.
In the past few weeks, on two separate occasions, someone said don’t let Perfect get in the way of good.
This past year, I’ve realized how easy it was to take for granted or overlook the many precious aspects of our lives, how we were always looking for better, Now I’ve come to realize that good was perfect also!
