Never been to any New York "rstautants". But been to Tavern-on-the-
Green, lots of Eye-talian in NYC, and Bahston, my home town.
I did ask about it at my local Wendy's tonight, and they'd never heard
of it! <|:-) °°° !!
I guess I don't get invited to the right restaurants. I've been eating
now for 67 years, even the occasional meal that looked like it was in
no way going to fill me up, decorated with several sauces. From Maine
to Mexico, Florida to Vancouver B.C.. Central Europe, Central America,
"Saigon", Hong Kong, Japan, Hawaii, and even Toronto. Never heard it,
or if it was spoken near me, I wasn't listening. I guess it has been
my loss, as I love the word, and practice it on a regular basis. And
hope to continue to do so for a long time to come.
