In March 2018, an interview with Ana's Kitchen owners, Ana Oliveira and Jeff Hoberman, was featured in the Hartford Courant. Ana and Jeff shared their vision for Ana's Kitchen:
“I thought this was a place with so much potential and we could do so much and be creative and do a lot,” Oliveira said. “I always had a vision … [that] I want to have a place where people come in and it always seems like we’re having a party. I want a place where people feel happy, where there’s a good energy going on, plenty of food and people doing whatever it is they want to do in a very relaxed place.”
Other locals also weighed in with their support for the renewed energy at Ana's Kitchen:
Sarah Nielsen, executive director of the Simsbury Main Street Partnership, said the plan by Oliveira and Hoberman will add vibrancy to Simsbury’s main thoroughfare.
“Ana has done a fantastic job of gauging what the really loyal customers still want with how to get new energy and new people,” Nielsen said.
