Monday – Wednesday, September 22nd – 24th, 2008
Arrived NYC midday where David has a Hall of Fame meeting on Tuesday afternoon. Monday evening was spent at dinner with a business associate and friend, Paul Nani of Saatchi NY. We went to A Voce at 41 Madison and had a lovely dinner. On Tuesday evening we met our friends Ron and Pat Pantello at Rossini’s on 38th and Park for dinner and cocktails. The menu was Northern Italian cuisine featuring many veal dishes, typical of that region. Ron is a regular so we received special treatment, every dish was made-to-order to our taste. Even David’s Spaghetti-Os were wonderful. What do WASPs know about Italian food! Certainly was great to spend time with Ron and Pat who winter in Longboat Key, FLA. Ron and are wannabe once-a-week chefs so our discussion was all about food we could cook together. With that said we all promised to travel across the Alley to Longboat as long as Ron and Pat came east to Boca. What a delightful evening and it has been way too long since we spent any time together.
