Brooks of Sheffield shares intel on his blog Lost City that Michael Miele of Ginos is hoping to open a new restaurant, Michael of Ginos. And on Eater he quotes a patron who says tempers are hot about the unionized waiters. Its said one of them was even tripped by a patron. Liz Gumbinner also dropped in during the last weekend of service and quoted her father on her Mom 101 blog: This is the Gino I remember and love bar is mobbed. Lots of people waiting for tables and no name. Just the boss remembering. And a great vodka gibson.
Her father, Paul, blogs about their meal on his View From Madison Avenue blog. And Jeremiahs Vanishing New York stops by to soak up the nostalgia: Safe. I feel safe, says one patron. Like I'm home. Is that silly? I don't know what I'm going to do now. Well give the final word to Gay Talese, who tells the Post, We're losing a place that represented tradition, great service and familiarity with New Yorkers.
