Established in 2008.
Bruno Selimaj was born and raised in a small village on the Northern Albanian/Montenegrin border and began his life as simple farmer. But at the tender age of 18 and with his parents blessing, he embarked on a journey to America in search of new life.
In an Albanian household, it is tradition that a guest is treated with the utmost respect and as a member of the family. Bruno brought these core family values to his restaurant and Bruno Selimaj's life defines true restaurant hospitality.
In December 2007, Bruno closed his legendary restaurant after 30 years with a new idea and a continuing passion to strive to be the best. He re-opened his famed restaurant as Club A, a modern American steakhouse in the same location. His new venture manages to encompass the characteristics of a traditional steakhouse and new world modernism. His latest accomplishment has established Bruno as one of New York's legendary restaurateurs.
Club A Steakhouse was opened in April 2008 after Bruno decided to take on a new challenge. For 30 years Bruno owned and operated, bruno Ristorante, but now he wanted to do something that his whole family could be a part of and would truly leave a legacy. The "A" in Club A Steakhouse is after his three sons, Arben, Agron, and Alban. All of whom work at the restaurant and help to carry on the core values of family hospitality and excellence in food service.
