Kids take over for ‘the guy on 41’ at Highland Park’s Fence Works

Highwood restaurateur sets his sights on swimming the English Channel Highland Park News
Highwood restaurateur sets his sights on swimming the English Channel
Highwood restaurateur Gabriel Viti wasn’t much of a swimmer until 10 years ago, when he set his sights on completing a triathlon for his 40th birthday. Viti’s late start makes his latest ambition — to swim the English Channel in early August — all the more inspiring. It’s not such a crazy idea, really, given his record for conquering the challenges he sets out to accomplish. On July 20, the 50-year-old Viti, owner of the popular Miramar’s Bistro, will board a flight to England, where he’ll acclimate himself to the channel’s conditions before his scheduled swim around Aug. 6 or 7.
