Here’s a little history on Tony and Dan!

Dan Ringwood and Tony Palermo have been in the restaurant industry for over 48 years. Meeting in Detroit, Michigan in 1975 as cooks, they carefully planned their future and dreamed of opening a restaurant. Confident in their skills, they decided it was time to move on. Tony entered a thirteen state chili cook-off and took first place honors. He came to Los Angeles for the United States finals, but finished in a disappointing 4th place. However, he had the insight to tour L.A. to see if the West Coast held the answer to his and Dan’s dream. Three months later, California become home to the newly unemployed duo. With no contacts and needing $$$, both set out to establish themselves. Tony landed a job as the Executive Chef at the Hard Rock Café. After several years in that position, he was promoted to Director of Operations for the chain. Danny was hired by Trumps, a 5 star restaurant in West L.A. as the assistant Pastry Chef. After developing his skills for several months, he was appointed Executive Pastry Chef.

On December 26, 1985 that dream became a reality. Teasers Restaurant had been a mainstay in Saint Monica downtown Promenade for over 16 years, finally closing its doors on Friday November 30th 2001. Teasers was know as a local, fun, inviting, friendly, great food store that was a meeting place for celebrities, politicians, tourist, locals and people of every walk of life.

In late 1996, Tony P’s became the second vision of Tony and Danny’s. After purchasing Charlie Brown’s and spending a hard, difficult, three months remodeling the restaurant, it was reopened on Super Bowl Sunday, 1997. Now celebrating their 25th year of operation in Marina del Rey.  Tony P’s has become the place to be!
