Livanos Restaurant Group

“Paul Ficalora brokered the sale of one of our restaurant businesses. Being very diplomatic he masterfully balanced the strong personalities and business priorities of both parties to get the contract signed and deal closed.” Nick Livanos

The Cookery

“Thanks to Paul the experience of purchasing my first restaurant was professionally managed with no surprises; he guided us every step of the way. Paul’s associate Gerry Houlihan instructed me on how to develop a realistic business plan that was fundamental to our early success. I highly recommend Paul and Gerry to anyone who would like to buy or sell a restaurant.” Chef David Dibari

Rockwells Express

“My son Marc streamlined our Rockwells concept and we agreed a college campus in New York City was the right location. Various brokers said they were searching for us, but within 2 weeks of speaking to Paul he found the perfect spot on the border of NYU campus. Within 30 days we signed a contract at $20 less a square foot than the market rate, along with several months of free rent. Paul has proven to be an extremely responsive and business savvy broker that I highly recommend.” Stephen Robins

The 808 Bistro

“After searching for months I was introduced to Paul and he immediately brought my partner Lynn and I to the restaurant we had envisioned. The process of purchasing a restaurant was more involved than I expected however Paul’s experience in every aspect, from the Letter Of Intent to the detailed equipment list brought us to the closing with no complications at all. It was a pleasure dealing with such a professional.” Chef Salvatore Cucullo

Restaurateur and Landlord
“Thanks to Paul’s diligent and professional efforts he was able to guide the deal in a way that satisfied all parties. This required many meetings, memorandums and discussions. A week before the closing, renewed issues threatened the deal. Thankfully Paul was the catalyst who ironed out the issues in question. At last the attorneys were satisfied and all parties were relived. I do not believe any other broker would have worked so hard and stayed so focused. I highly recommend Paul as an outstanding restaurant business broker.” Sergio Losapio

Both Hannah and I will certainly recommend your services.” Kevin Hopkins
