Hall & Aldo's

Sergio Vitale of Aldo's got quite a response -- much of it negative -- when he trumpeted news that Lookin at Lucky's owner dined at the restaurant after winning the Preakness.

When another celebrity supped at Aldo's Sunday, Vitale still wanted to share the news, but in little more understated way.

"Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates just called us to make a reservation for dinner tonight after their Pier 6 concert," he e-mailed me Sunday afternoon. "Needless to say, (given my recent experience), I won't be preparing a press release after this dinner (LOL) but I'll share any details if interested."


I told him I was interested. If you are, too, here are the details of the dinner enjoyed by Hall and two companions. Here's Sergio. LV  

They had: Chef Aldo's House-cured Charcuterie: Pancetta & Sopressata


Arancini - Risotto Balls stuffed with Meat Sauce, Peas and Carrots

Soft Shell Crab, Brown Butter & Remoulade with Sweet Corn Fritter

Crab Cake Appetizer, Beef Carpaccio Hall had Zuppa di Pesce (assorted fresh seafood in a tomato bouillon) for dinner.

He [Hall] was vacillating between the Osso Buco and the Zuppa, then decided on the Zuppa.

Affogato for dessert (vanilla gelato, espresso and sambuca)
