Event Review: Murdered by the Mob
Went to the show this past Saturday night. We had a GROUP ON gift for Fathers Day. After reading all the negative reviews I was concerned we'd be wasting our time. Was is great? No. The food is so-so. For the money a ticket costs you think they would give you a salad and a non alcoholic beverage after all how much would some lettuce and a pitcher of soda cost? It would be each per person at the table. They do have a menu that allows you to spend more money on fancier appetizers (antipasto) and hard drinks. Most people sat our table didn't eat the standard appetizers. Everyone gets the chicken parm, the chicken low carb alternative or the vegetarian alternative, I had the low carb chicken which was excellent. My wife had the chicken parm with the pasta. It was bready and the portions were small. But they were all tasty. They also served italian bread. The dessert was interesting ... one cookie per person at the table. You would think that since the premise is a party for the new "Don" they would have a sheet cake or something. Again it shows you that they are trying to skimp. They succeed. That all being said the show was entertaining . There are alot of camoy double entendres,; the actors are funny the show is cute . DON"T bring small children. There were a few children between the ages of 7 and 12, and it was not appropreiate for them. The show should advertise its rated "R".
All in all its not worth full price but with Group On or a similar 50% discount makes it a fun evening in the City.
Arno Restaurant like the Arno River is classically Italian. The ambiance of dark wood and large mirrors reminds you of Tuscany. Interestingly enough Tuscany is famous for its beef and there is very little beef on Arno’s menu. What Arno does have is someone who knows fish and seafood. Its Calamari was freshly done, fried Calamari that sits becomes greasy and rubbery, and the sauce was nicely piccante, just a little heat. Avoid the Mozzarella and Basil it was very plain Jane. There are daily specials and we got Bass with a butter, cream and caper sauce that was truly good. Bass is not often found in NYC restaurants, being a inland fresh water fish and when done right is delicious and this was superb. If you have to die a martyr’s death consider Arno’s desserts as a reasonable reward their white chocolate cake with strawberries is to die for and their ordinary chocolate mouse is far from ordinary. The service is excellent, but the dinner can be pricey at $ 180 for two with tip. for more see www.ditmasestates.com
