About Us



For the owner and staff alike, Sale & Pepe is a true labor of love. Restauranteur Peter Semetis, together with General Manager Brian Dwyer have each brought their unique blend of artistry, tradition and command for perfection to this highly rated restaurant situated in the heart of New York's financial district.


Getting an early start, Peter Semetis broke into the industry at 13 years of age in the famous seafood houses of Sheepshead Bay. An able and adept student, he was quickly propelled up the ranks and soon managed top name steak and seafood establishments like Pappas and Randazzos along the popular Brooklyn strip.

Peter supplemented his years of hands-on training with a zealous academic pursuit. Through his commitment and hard work, he earned a coveted Associated Degree from New York City Technical College, a highly recognized culinary program which has turned out an exciting roster of internationally acclaimed chefs.

Peter's mastery of traditional cuisine and flare for the nouveau adds daily excitement to Sale & Pepe's extensive menu. From old-world fare to popular American favorites, Peter adds twists to create unique taste sensations. In his off-hours, Peter reads through more than a dozen food magazines each month to seek out fresh ideas in food preparation and catering.



As Sale & Pepe's General Manager, Brian Dwyer has the unique opportunity to do it all. From restaurant supervision to brainstorming with staff chefs to prepare the next day's menu, Brian puts his industry expertise to work. His versatile background in corporate positions as an Executive Chef, make him the perfect compliment to the Sale & Pepe staff.

Working side-by-side with the restaurant owner, Brian has also mastered the art of perfection. From classic fare to gourmet entrees, Brian ensures superior taste and quality for each selection. The accomplished chef also oversees and prepares all executive menu orders.
