A birthday is always a good reason to visit a restaurant.
But note to self – never let my good friend RL organize a birthday dinner celebration again – especially if he’s planning on visiting the casino earlier in the day.
Rick’s birthday was a disaster. The plan had been to meet at Mamma Grazzi’s for 7PM but when Aline and I showed up 10 minutes early – no reservations had been placed and that was probably due to the fact no reservations were allowed – and there was a lineup of at least 6 people in front of us. No one showed up by 7:15 so we went for a walk ourselves and tried again later. This time Eric & Jen were there but still no birthday boy.
Had veal with brandy. Nice sauce. Excellent roasted potatoes and vegetable side.
