After 20 Years in Business, Serafina Finally Opens its Doors in Los Angeles with a Star Studded Evening

On September 22nd, Serafina Sunset made their mark on the iconic Sunset Strip with their celeb studded grand opening. Christina Milian, RJ Mitte, Rob Mayes, Cameron Dallas, Daymond John, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O’Leary, Robert Herjavec and wife Kym Johnson joined owners Mel B, Stephen Belafonte, Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato to welcome the first California installment of the legendary New York City-based Italian eatery to the West Coast. Owner Vittorio Assaf told us that they opened their first restaurand in New York City 20 years ago. They were going to open a Serafina in Los Angeles about 15 years ago, currently where Mel Dinner resides, but it never happened so it is finally time that they open this delicious trendy spot. Mel B stunned in a Versace gown and husband Stephen Belafonte sipped on Perfecto Mundo hand crafted cocktails while RJ Mitte and Rob Mayes danced to tracks spun by Paul Oakenfold and DJ Lindsay Luv, with a drum set by Ravi Drums. Across the room, the cast of Shark Tank feasted on signature dishes such as the truffle risotto and gnocchi with cherry tomatoes while Kevin O’Leary smoked BG Meyer cigars on the lavish upstairs patio. Surrounded by his entourage, Cameron Dallas sat by the fire pit and took selfies with party goers. Later in the night, Stephen Belafonte jumped behind the DJ booth with co-owner Vittorio Assaf to keep the party going for friends and family.
