I have read about an Italian restaurant in one of the boroughs (maybe brooklyn or the bronx?) that serves an unbelievable feast during the Mardi Gras season (Jan 7 through Fat Tuesday). I think it has the first name of the proprietor, whose name may be something like Thomas. But if it were that simple, I may have found it already! It sounds like one of those places where the food just keeps coming, and you eat so much you hurt in a way that will make you remember your Italian Nonna with gratitude and nostalgia. Any help out there?
