Lento's R.I.P.

I'm surprised I didn't see any posts here about the closing of Lento's Bar & Restaurant on 3rd Avenue in Bay Ridge, home of occassionally fabulous and occasionally boring thin crust pizza, and a great old tavern besides.

Come to think of it, it's probably the single restaurant I've been to the most times in my life. I lived a few blocks from there in the late 70's thru the mid 80's, it was just the place for my new bride and I to while away a Friday night over pizza and cheap red wine (or as Carmen the waiter used to call it, "A bottla Boigandy"). Even though I've been in NJ for about 20 years I still would get back there from time to time. ---Ken
