A few days before the U.S. Open, Italian pro tennis player Matteo Berrettini was off the court and in the kitchen.
The Boss ambassador headed downtown to SoHo on Friday night, where he hosted a dinner with Hugo Boss and A Pasta Bar owners Andrea Pedrazzoli and Simone Tiligna. At one point in the evening, the tennis player even ventured into the kitchen to serve up some pasta. Guests included Boss’ Stephan Born, Ciaran McInerney and Josh Benedek, and Berrettini’s father, Luca Berrettini.
The Italian restaurant and fashion brand were kicking off their collaboration, which includes Boss-branded restaurant design details like napkins, pergolas and staff uniforms and a few specialty cocktails, including the “Berrettini Martini” and “Overhead Smash.” The dinner also celebrated Berrettini’s Boss capsule collection of tennis essentials and collaborative shoe with Asics, as well as the the start of the Open. Berrettini will play his first round match against French player Ugo Humbert on Tuesday.
