Fort Lauderdale brothers take on kitchen and disability
Sun Sentinel | Feature
Behind the countertop, one brother pulls out knives, the other quickly grabs the cutting boards. As one minces green onions, the other shells fava beans. In this kitchen, for brothers Luke and Dean Bergman, food is a family affair.
But this isn’t the family kitchen. The Bergman brothers work at Valentino Cucina Italiana, an upscale restaurant at 620 S. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale, and Dean, the younger of the two, has Down syndrome.
