Money Doctor Episode 23 - Alina's Restaurant
Is there any other way to say it? Frances Rahaim, Ph.D. aka The Money Doctor interviews Chef Martin Amaya and Maritza Amaya, owners of the family run Alina’s Ristorante (named for their 9 year old daughter) in Hadley, MA, formerly in South Deerfield, MA.
This adorable couple work side by side for 80-100 hours weekly without regret, on this labor of love. Coming from San Salvador at age 17, with a broken arm, and no prospects or promise of work, Martin took a job as a dishwasher in what was then known as Carmelina’s Restaurant. Along the way, he met Maritza, fell in love with her, and the art of fine cuisine, and today they have purchased the restaurant he started at 18 years ago.
This charming, generous couple are quick to give thanks and credit to those around them, and their caring, kindness, and love of life is evident in every bite of northern Italian cuisine, and the surroundings it is served in. Don’t miss this rare opportunity learn the behind the scenes story straight from Martin and Maritza.
