Ago Staff Members Are Latest to Blog Ago

Before it opened, Robert De Niro’s restaurant, Ago, got a lot of attention from bloggers — you’ll recall grainy photos of the wine-cork ceiling. Now they’ve moved on to the next thing (waffles!), and the restaurant’s staff, as if in an attempt to fill the void, has posted to YouTube a feel-good video depicting seemingly everyone on payroll, right down to the guy who irons the uniforms. As fascinated as we are by the photos of waiters checking their BlackBerrys, our favorite part comes at around 3:00, when members of the crew offer their best “You talkin’ to me?” Somehow, this makes us miss blurry construction shots!
