Frank Coniglio of E.R. Bradley's Saloon: Tells Us About the Harvey Wallbanger and His Love of Horse Racing

The Palm Beach food scene wouldn't be what it is today without the Coniglio family and its most notable family member - number 16 on our Tastemakers list - Frank Coniglio, co-owner for a string of Florida establishments that includes Palm Beach Island's Cucina dell'Arte, Nick & Johnnie's and Cha Cha's.

Coniglio purchased his first establishment, E.R. Bradley's Saloon, in1984 as homage to his love of horse racing and -- as the name suggests -- E.R. Bradley, otherwise known as Colonel Edward Riley Bradley, named one of the "Great Floridians" by the Florida Department of State.

But it's not just the restaurants that put Coniglio on this list.
