The Tomkat phenomenon
Word comes today that Rialto is tilting Italian after the renowned restaurant remodels early in 2007. Chef Jody Adams, who is taking over as sole owner Jan. 1, says she'll keep some of her signature French and Mediterranean dishes, but plans "Italian-inspired" creations such as slow-braised rabbit with chestnuts and olives, and little pizzas on the bar menu.
Could it be the confluence of stars lurking on the horizon right now? Tomkat, we mean, of course. Their nuptials (Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, baby Suri) outside of Rome this weekend have Hollywood biggies stacking up like cordwood in Italian hotels. In our celebrity-obsessed culture, no wonder the all-Italian all the time is washing this way.
