Reintroducing Churchill’s

Posted January 25, 2024

By Terry Biener

Established in 2000, Churchill’s Pub & Grill has long been a popular icon in Rockville Centre. It changed hands during the summer of 2020. Chef/Owner Maurizio Vendittelli set out to restore Churchill’s to its finest version, while retaining its staff members and warm, friendly atmosphere. That fall, Vendittelli also acquired Winston’s (next door), renaming it Mangia Bene, turning it into an Italian restaurant serving robust pizzas and fresh pastas, to more upscale entrees.

Physical restoration came first at Churchill’s — modernizing restrooms, painting, replacing outdated equipment. Vendittelli now focuses on updating and expanding menus and offerings. “We use only the freshest, finest quality ingredients. We run a scratch kitchen,” he says. Extremely passionate about cooking, he enjoys the ability to engage and supervise both restaurants’ kitchens.
