Matt Denny’s may have a new owner in Long Nguyen, but the hospitality and service remain the same at this Arcadia hot-spot. Around 20 members of the Arcadia Chamber took over a few tables on the patio for the April edition of Pop-Up Happy Hour, and Long and staff delivered delicious appetizers for guests, including their famous meatballs, chips and salsa, and pot stickers. Former owner Matt McSweeney was in attendance as well, checking on guests and chatting with friends, and manager Patrick circulated the patio too.
Long’s plan is to keep Matt Denny’s exactly as is, keeping the same staff, staying involved in the community and still being a part of the Chamber’s biggest event; Taste of Arcadia. Long has 10 years of restaurant experience himself, and he commented that the ‘total package’ of Matt Denny’s helped him make the decision to buy the venue. With him being as hands-on the former owner, Long is sure to become as familiar a face as Matt McSweeney has been for the past 19 years.
Stop by Matt Denny’s and give Long Nguyen a warm welcome, enjoy some happy hour beers and cocktails while enjoying their classic food menu. And keep you eyes on the Arcadia Chamber’s social media for our next Pop-Up Happy Hour location!
