Press Articles

I was sitting at the bar at Sam’s a few weeks back, contemplating the menu over a glass of Chianti when a customer a few seats down (a regular, I learned later) began extolling the virtues of the restaurant’s calamari Siciliano. He took a sip of his cocktail and asked, “If I order some, will you share it with me?” Who could say no to that? It disappeared, pronto. I offered to buy, or at least split the charge; he declined.
