[Pigging by Wilfrid: April 6, 2015]
Last weekend was really San Domenico weekend for me (and let's be honest, I always thought of it as San Domenico, even after the move to Madison Square and the name-change to SD26). It was partly a farewell--a final nostalgic dinner on Saturday, a lively party on Sunday.
But it was also a time to celebrate new horizons. Tony May, who kicked off his New York restaurant career as general manager of the Rainbow Room in 1968, is retiring only to expand his role as educator and ambassador for Italian food. His daughter Marisa--recently married and planning to divide her time between Rome, where her husband works, and New York--is already thinking about another restaurant.
And she's keeping the San Domenico name.
