The happy parents of Cara Malanowski and Jay Jensen brought their families and friends to dinner at Orofino’s on Friday. Congratulations Cara and Jay! Well done! Now on to Kentucky and Rensselaer. (That’s a photo of Cara and Jay as babies on the cake.)
We had a swell time the day after Christmas by hydroplaning down to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx and joining the gang for dinner at Dominick’s. The always-crowded family style restaurant had long been one of favorite haunts, and though Ginny and I had not eaten there for ten years or so, we had spent many a happy evening there in the company of Anni and Greg Montaneno, Jim Noonan, Tom Manning, Mary McCartney, Holly Brubach and other friends. It was still fun. I had baked clams oregenata and flounder francese, but I should have had the veal.
