AN EVENING WITH MARIO
After the winter of 2014-2015 it was difficult to think of anything else but a more pleasant 2015-2016 wintry time. Past winter was a back healing one with very little snow and I almost forgot that 2016 has begun and what a memorable year it meant to me.
In fact it is so remarkable that 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of my coming to Newton and opening my very first restaurant. I came up from Brooklyn in 1976 and never looked back or ever regretted the move.
Forty years is certainly a very long time and many events have occurred. Some will always be remembered and cherished while others are best left forgotten. The memories of 40 years’ experiences will be the focus of
“AN EVENING WITH MARIO”.
I extend to you my personal invitation to spend an evening with me on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 at 7:30PM in the Gallery adjacent to the café.
I will demonstrate some of my cooking skills and recipes developed over the years. We will make and then we will eat and drink. Such memorable dishes as Shrimp Abruzzi, Homemade Fettuccine, Veal Marsala, among others,
will be prepared for you for your enjoyment. Hear stories of what I did with Mayor Ted Mann on certain nights of the week; the night Arthur Fiedler “parted” the sea of admiring spectators; where did Seiji Ozawa put all that linguine?; who was Pasquale Cardillo?
It will be a time of sharing 40 years of interesting and fun times. I urge you
to bring your own stories and don’t be shy about the minute details that may have been forgotten.
As a memento of the evening I will give you a summary copy of a most interesting cookbook that I have been writing for quite some time. It is my gift to you for all the memories.
Please let me know if you will attend since we have seating for about 80 people, although we have food and drink for many, many more. E-mail me
at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know that we will be sharing another evening again.
