As life settles down in the post-pandemic world, Gary Sikka with his son Rubel has opened a world-class banquet facility in the heart of Hicksville in New York. “We can host a party with any cuisine and serve up to 400 guests. It was a dream and we have finally made it come true”, said Gary Sikka to the guests from the media at a press conference hosted at the beautiful Pearl banquets which was inaugurated recently.

Gary is known for his culinary skills and affable nature in Manhattan who was at the Mint earlier in the 90s and is now a household name in Long Island for his facility in Garden City with the same name. Mint is the choice of most for dinner or catering in a big event in this region. “We have done parties for thousands of guests since I first started. We care and cook from heart,” said Gary the man behind the success.

The press had been invited to showcase the facility and share the vision of the father-son duo who hosted the media fraternity at the $7-million facility with a parking space for more than 150 in the sprawling area. Named after their granddaughter, Pearl is a much-needed place for all kinds of parties. Hicksville has grown multifold. The Pearl is located on the Old Country Road in Hicksville where the community has grown extraordinarily in recent times. “We felt there is an immense need for this place and decided before the pandemic to build Pearl. But we got delayed and prices went up. Still, we have left no stone unturned to make this state-of-the-art facility,” said Gary.

Pearl is set to serve all communities with any cuisine. With the upcoming festival season, Pearl is set for a grand start. Media friends joined Gary and his family to lend their support and were treated to a sumptuous dinner after a Q&A session and greetings from all.
