In March 2023, one of the VOGLIANO family members died while attending a New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden.

We look at the life and death of Ernest Vogliano, the son of a well-known New York City restaurateur.

Who was Ernest Vogliano?

Ernest Vogliano, 61, was best known as the son of restaurateur Ernest Vogliano Sr., who ran Il Vagabondoon on East 62nd Street.

Ernest grew up in the restaurant industry, but he decided to change his career path and focus on media.

He founded the magazine Aspen Aces & Eights and Monster Productions, a web design firm in New York.

According to his obituary, he was also a volunteer firefighter in Bedford, New York, and he enjoyed world travel, beekeeping, skiing, and hockey.

Ernest died on March 18, 2023, shortly after the Rangers defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-0.

According to the New York Post, he was riding an escalator railing inside Madison Square Garden when he died two to three floors down.

Around 10.40 p.m., the incident occurred, and he was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

His death was eventually ruled accidental, but his widow, Lesa, has hired an attorney to assist in the investigation, claiming that she was kept in the dark about her husband’s death.

“We have no idea what happened, but they do,” family attorney Fred Eisenberg told The Post. “We have to review the evidence.

“We know that he was there and we know that he died. We’d like to find out how.”

In an email obtained by The Post, a rep for MSG called Vogliano’s death “a tragic accident.”

“A fan at this past Saturday’s Rangers game was injured in a tragic accident while he was exiting the venue and was immediately transported to a local hospital where he passed away,” the email said.

The U.S. Sun reached out to the family’s attorney for comment but did not receive a response prior to publication.

When Ernest wasn’t working, he could be found spending time with his family.

Prior to his death, he and his wife Lesa welcomed two children, Blaze and Summer.

Ernest’s children are currently unknown because they prefer to remain out of the spotlight.

According to his obituary, he was also survived by his mother, Dolores, siblings Robert and Marie, and several nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
