About Quinn and Quinn

In 1959 James J. Quinn opened his restaurant in the heart of downtown Solon, Ohio. He quickly became known through out the area for fine Italian dining, a friendly atmosphere and a personal touch. One of the features Quinn’s was known for was the large sunken dance floor and our House Italian Dressing. When people came to our restaurant they usually stayed for hours eating and listening to live music in two separate dining rooms. In the early days the only way to get our dressing was to come in and have dinner, but then the demand became so great we started selling the dressing over the counter. Over the years we started making dressing for over the counter sales as well as for use in our restaurant.

Unfortunately, as time went by the business of the restaurant went away but the demand for our House Italian Dressing never did. Now you can find it in your local market in the refrigerated section. As you would have been told in 1959, we will tell you now, you must keep the dressing refrigerated. The bottle was specially chosen for its mixing abilities so you must shake it until it is a creamy white in color. We recommend that you toss your lettuce and other ingredients in a large bowl with the dressing and add salt to taste. It makes a great marinade for most types of meat and seafood. It is also great for potato or pasta salads, sub sandwiches, cooked, raw, or fresh vegetables. It makes a great dipping sauce for breaded chicken strips, focaccia, bruschetta or drizzle on caprese salad or toss fresh spinach salad with fresh strawberries and mandarin oranges. Mangia! Mangia!
