From Italy to New York - Having lunch with Paola Colleoni

  • Columbus Day weekend was a memorable occasion for me and our past Featured Member, Paola Colleoni,(Italy)  when she flew into New York for a visit. As we New Yorkers like to say "We'll do Lunch" - and we did and not just any ordinary lunch, but at the famed "Modern" restaurant next door to the Museum of Modern Art, of who's halls we strolled beforehand, taking in all the famous paintings that Paola had been waiting to see. Since Paola is a fine art painter, I was treated to an up close and personal review of every painter and his work. And how did I get those reservations you ask so quickly? I didn't, I called two months in advance, was turned down and told to call back exactly 30 days from the date I wanted to dine -  28 days later, I called nervously once again and was turned down because I was 2 days too early to make the reservation.  I got it right the third time around!!
