This Low Energy Staten Island Restaurant Commercial is Pure Magic


I was never lucky enough to eat at the nautical-themed Top of the Mast restaurant on Staten Island despite my many trips there to visit family as a kid. It was hard to resist going after seeing this amazing commercial back in the 1980s. Why? Because in just 30 seconds, it demonstrated the culinary magic and warm inviting atmosphere you could expect when you frequented the Top of the Mast.

Everything about this commercial is great, the woman who narrates it, the shots of the food and most importantly the closing shot. Make sure you watch that closing shot…
