As a child in Lyon, France, Nathaly dreamed of working in Hollywood. But, as the daughter of a boutique-hotel manager, hospitality was in her blood. She arrived in the United States speaking little English, but quickly discovered her gift for making people feel incredibly comfortable. She honed her hosting abilities at The French Quarter and Kuleto's before settling in at Scala's, where she's been a fixture since 1997, kissing both cheeks of her regular customers, anticipating a guest's every need, and generally becoming as memorable and well-loved as Scala's legendary food. Looking back, her career has turned out remarkably well. "I always wanted to work in movies." Nathaly says. "And now I am on stage every night."
