Last week, Max Pescatori and Todd Brunson were the talk of the poker community after news came out that they purchased the renowned Las Vegas restaurant named Roma Deli, situated a few miles west of the strip, at 5755 W Spring Mountain Road.

A 2016 Poker Hall of Fame inductee and winner of one WSOP bracelet, Todd Brunson is a known foodie who frequently posts photos of his meals at various restaurants on Twitter. He said he’ll have a 25% stake in the restaurant but does not share Pescatori’s ownership stake.

Massimiliano ‘Max’ Pescatori was born in Milan, Italy, so you’d bet that he knows a lot about authentic Italian-style cuisine. He is also known to be the most successful poker player in history from his home country. He has 4 WSOP bracelets and so far has won $4.2 million in live tournaments.
