MCC is privileged to announce that when the newly refurbished Top of the Falls restaurant opens for next season, the new proprietor will be Waldo Cesoni. Waldo currently is a major restauranter in the Coachella Valley and Palm Springs, CA. Waldo owns three restaurants, his first was the Backstreet Bistro on El Paseo in Palm Desert. He more recently opened the popular Waldo’s Ristorante also in Palm Desert and then purchased and became the owner of The Sandbar in Old Town La Quinta.

Waldo grew up in Sante Fe, Argentina the son of Italian immigrants. An observant young Waldo learned the art of hospitality from his father who worked in the hotel and restaurant industry. Waldo understood early on that a restaurant was like a home…you welcome your patrons and clients as friends and never treat it like a business.

Waldo’s extensive resume of past employment is too long to list here but he served as General Manager for the Michael Mina Bourbon Steakhouse in Los Angeles and for the Woflgang Puck Fine Dining Group in Las Vegas. Before relocating to Indian Wells and choosing to open his own restaurant he also was an Operating Partner at the Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse in El Segundo, CA.

Waldo’s philosophy of running a restaurant can be summed up as: “we are not in the food industry, we are in the people industry.” He and his staff emphasize the importance of his restaurants always being welcoming to all that walk through the doors and to be treated as family. In order to maintain the high level of service that Waldo expects his clients to receive he advises: “take care of your employees and make sure you have the right people”.

Clearly Waldo brings years of experience and an abundant amount of enthusiasm to the TOF restaurant.  The Top of the Falls new general manager, Carlos Hernandez, will come to MCC seasoned with experience in the “country club style” of service and its clientele. With the refurbishment of the TOF and an expanded bar area Waldo intends to emphasize a vigorous “Happy Hour menu and an expanded lunch and dinner menu.  Being of Italian ancestry, we can be certain the wine list too will be impressive.

Waldo is expecting to have the restaurant open at least six days week. He is a proponent of the popular MCC dinner shows and is looking forward to getting to know and serve the members and guests of Motorcoach Country Club.

The members of Motorcoach Country Club look forward to a new look at the Top of the Falls and a successful season for all. We welcome Waldo!
