On the heals of the opening of The Spread Sportsbook & Deli at Downtown Grand Las Vegas the Executive Chef, Mike Sellmann, has decided to give you a glimpse into his favorite Sandwich. Turns out their so good he couldn’t chose just one!
“My favorite is the “Mob Club” roasted turkey, bacon, provolone, smoked red pepper, aioli, spinach on herb focaccia. It’s a simple twist on a traditional club I like to add avocado to mine when I order it. The fresh focaccia sets it apart from other deli sandwiches. Also our “Reuben” is also very good, we get our corned beef from a small “artisanal” producer in Los Angeles. They also provide their corned beef to Santa Anita Race Track. “
We can’t wait for Tony Gemignani and his award-winning Pizza Rock-
In 2007, Tony Gemignani entered The World Pizza Cup competition in Naples, Italy. Tony won first place in the STG Category for the best Neapolitan Pizza with his Pizza Margherita. He became the first American in history to win the award, beating out all the Italians and Neapolitans in the competition. Tony’s win quickly went into the history books and journalists across the globe compared this honor to that of Napa’s own Stag Leap’s 1976 win in Paris, France for the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the world.
Tony was determined to bring the exact award-winning pizza back to the United States and share it with everyone. Our Neapolitan wood burning oven is a Cirigliano imported from Italy. It is the same type of oven that Tony won with. We import all of the same ingredients that Tony used in the competition, right down to the sea salt. We prepare Tony’s award-winning dough by hand each day. This dough is even proofed in Neapolitan wood boxes. We only use one type of flour for this pizza and that flour is not used in any other pizza on our menu. Our limit for our award-winning Pizza Margherita is 73 per day.
The story goes…Tony won on his namesake day in Italy “San Antonio Day”, June 13th, which was a lucky day for him and is special to all Italians. That day he spilled some wine over the table while eating a late lunch with friends. Quickly, the Neapolitans’ grabbed Tony and said to rub the spilled wine on his forehead to bring him luck. The Neapolitans’ said “Tonight you are going to win!!! It’s your namesake day and now it’s your lucky day.” That night Tony took home the coveted trophy with his teammates and the rest is history. To commemorate this day of 06/13, we added the 6 and 1 together and kept the 3 – that is why we only serve 73 of this award-winning Pizza Margherita each day.

Triple George Grill especially appreciates Chef Joe, Executive Chef of Triple George Grill, and the man behind the scenes that does it all.
Chef Joe is a native of Iselin, New Jersey. He first started in F&B when he worked for a caterer called Celebrated Food in Maplewood, New Jersey and has not stopped cooking since. His favorite thing to cook would be Broiled Carne Asada Ribeye with Chipotle Cheddar Potato Au Gratin and Grilled Green Onions. He really does have a knack for cooking a variety of items. Chef Joe was inspired to continue his culinary career after he read a book by, and subsequently met, Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Thank goodness for Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten because if it weren’t for him, Triple George Grill wouldn’t be as lucky as they are to have him!
All we have to say is, thank you for what you do Chef Joe, you are truly a joy to work with and are fabulous at what you do! Happy Culinarians Day everyone!
