437 Rush

Jane | May 8, 2004 08:50 PM

Has anyone been to 437 Rush which was favorably reviewed by all 3 guests on CHECK PLEASE? And does anyone remember Riccardo's which formerly occupied the space? It's been gone for a long time, but Rick Kogan remembered it going to it with his dad, Herman. I remember it, too. It was one of our favorite places and once,a little before Xmas, sometime in the early 50's, my husband and I happened to be walking by when a waiter in as Santa Claus costume greeted us saying, in a strong Italian accemt, "I'ma Santa Clausa. Hava some wine," and he gave us each a glass of hot spiced wine. Naturally, we went in and had lunch.
