This Mom’s day we want to highlight one very special mom at Abrusci’s, Tatum McGinnis. Known as “Mama T” by restaurant staff, Tatum is one of our rockstar managers. The name “Mama T” was started by staff members of the restaurant back in 2003 and the name has stuck with her ever since. Tatum is married to our General Manager, Marvin Williams, and has embraced her role as his assistant in taking care of their 6th child…the restaurant.
“I love seeing our long-time customers and getting to know the new ones!”
When not taking care of her kiddos at the restaurant, Tatum is a mom to three boys, Anthony (22), Weston (8) and Camden (6). When asked what her favorite thing about being a mom is, she said “seeing them grow and learn.”
At our new restaurant location, Tatum has even has inspired a few of our favorite dishes: the Mama T (Pizza or Calzone), and Tater Chips. Can anyone guess what her favorite cheese is? Yep, blue cheese, which also happens to be the main ingredient in each of these dishes. She is also a big fan of the Penne Gorgonzola.
Abrusci’s Fire and Vine wants to say a special Thank You to Mama T and all the moms out there by giving them a free glass of champagne with their meal. Don’t make Mom cook or clean up, take her to a nice dinner. Let us pamper her with champagne and maybe even enjoy one of our Mother’s Day Specials we are offering Friday through Sunday….Take a look and don’t forget to make a reservation for parties of 5 or more! We look forward to seeing you this weekend!
