If you haven’t been to Gino’s Italian Restaurant at 780 Lexington Avenue in NYC, you better change that quick! This old-time classic restaurant is sadly coming to a close this Saturday. I finally got to sample their tasty meals yesterday at a family-style lunch with the Glassnote team. It was a nice chance to spend some quality out of office time at this classic restaurant. Gino’s was opened 65 years ago, in April of 1945, and has been filling customer’s bellies since then.
The scrumptious meal we all ordered: a pasta dish called Paglia fiegno secreto, preceded by the chopped Gino’s salad and Stretchatella soup. I’d have to rank it as #1 among the lunches I’ve had since working here. The meal was so filling I didn’t even need dinner… and I don’t get full easily!
