Italian Dinner #2


bamonte's.jpgLast night I went to Bamonte’s in Brooklyn.

I’ve been going there for decades, as have many people because it has been around for 109 years.  They are now on the fourth generation of Bamonte’s running the place, with a fifth generation being raised in the art of Italian cooking.

If you want Italian food like mama used to make, go to Bamonte’s.

If you want to be treated like a friend when you dine, go to Bamonte’s.

If you want to know what it was like to be from Brooklyn, go to Bamonte’s.

If you want a piece of Brooklyn Dodger history, go to Bamonte’s as many of the Boys of Summer took the trolley there after games.

If you want to know why I think it is the best Italian in New York, go to Bamonte’s.

Speaking of the Boys of Summer, tonight at KeySpan Park in Brooklyn I will be inducted into the Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Fame.  To have my name mentioned with those guys, some of the best guys to ever wear the Dodgers uniform, some of the best guys to ever play the game, is very special for me.  I played for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1954 and ’55, and what an amazing experience it was to play in front of the fans at Ebbetts field and be a part of one of the best eras in baseball.


I’ll go there this year when the Dodgers meet the Yankees in the W.S.

I can’t believe that having a 7.61ERA and 11BB in 13IP can get you into any hall of fame. Brooklyn Dodgers are reaching here.

Spumoni Gardens is good too while you’re in Brooklyn, I’ll try Bamonte’s next time, sounds like old school style’ good. -Rudy Jr

I go to Bamonte’s often and once got your autograph along with Mike Pizza’s and Eric Karros’ that was back in 1993 although you didn’t remember me when I mentioned it to you a CBR last year but that’s alright I’m still a fan. I keep hoping to meet you again there.
