Big Night

A branch of Frankie and Benny's has opened round the corner so the Big Apple was our destination for "eat your way around the world in London".

The profit burglar had New York chicken. Chicken is Noo Yawked it would seem, by topping a breast with bacon, smoked cheese and barbecue sauce.

I had spaghetti with meatballs as a sort of tribute to Primo blowing a gasket when asked for it in Big Night - "sometimes the spaghetti likes to be alone" - and of course Clemenza in the Godfather:
"Heh, come over here, kid, learn something. You never know, you might have to cook for 20 guys someday. You see, you start out with a little bit of oil. Then you fry some garlic. Then you throw in some tomatoes, tomato paste, you fry it; ya make sure it doesn't stick. You get it to a boil; you shove in all your sausage and your meatballs; heh…? And a little bit o' wine. An' a little bit o' sugar, and that's my trick."
'Twas washed down with a Sangiovese Merlot blend.
