Have any of you been to Nino's Restaurant, 431 Canal St. before Sept. 11? I'm on the west coast and heard a recent inspiring news story about the owner, Nino Vendome. I'm late on hearing about him, but I was totally inspired when I heard about what he's doing for the rescue workers, and having spent about 250k of his own money now to feed them round the clock. A chowhound search didn't find any previous thread on this place, but a google search turned up an interesting article from Oct. 2. If you would like to see the artcile, you can click on the link. He sounds like one of many angels helping out in your area.
