"Grampa Al's Restaurant"

This week as I was going through some boxes of memorabilia, I came across an ad I had saved for Al Lewis' restaurant in NYC. Back in 1987, Grampa Al of "The Munsters" fame, opened an nice Italian restaurant in the Village. I got to go there once. I remember it being unusually pink inside. And we had a waiter who looked like a younger version of Mikhail Baryshnikov. The food was good. We didn't get to see Grampa, but the ambiance was nice and relaxed. The above photo of the window from outside is nicked from the Interweb, and the ad I cut out of The Aquarian Weekly newspaper is below. Many thanks to my friend who took me there. Only in New York! :-)
