About the Chef:
Vincent is a born and raised Jersey boy. For as long as he can remember,
every family gathering was surrounded by amazing Italian food.
Vincent's great grandfather, Joseph Faccone Sr., along with his sons
Joseph Faccone Jr. (Vincent's grandfather), Austin, Anthony and Gerard
owned a number of restaurants growing up. Austins in Long Branch and Faccones
in Jersey City were their growing businesses. Vincent began to form a passion
for cooking and was eager to learn from his long line of family cooks.
It was apparent that he had something special and a natural talent to
create new recipes from Italian classics that had been passed down to him.
Having other people enjoy the food that he has prepared for them brings
him much enjoyment. With the resturaunt business already in his blood and
the cooking skills that have been passed down to him, Vincent pursued life
as a chef. He has worked as a server, general manager, bartender,
and cook in a number of restaurants throughout North Jersey.
This experience has allowed him to learn all aspects of the restaurant
business and the food service industry.
Several years ago, Vincent started a private catering company called
Joe Faccone’s that specializes in all Italian classics. In addition to
his thriving catering company, Vincent has decided to step out on his own
and most recently opened his own restaurant, The Cheese Bar, located in
downtown Pompton Lakes.
