Paris Cafe Brings Memories Of Mafia Godfather Corleone


The Italian specialty ristorante recently opened near the Arc de Triomphe in touristy Paris. The menu features favorite Italian and Sicilian dishes, including caponata and pesto all trapanese. Corleone, an infamous town in Sicily, was featured in the Godfather films starring Marlon Brando.

So, senior goombah, when you’re in Paris, stop by for some tasty pronzo and cena, and buon appetito.

Senior theater review: Old Blue Eyes Is Back, Sort of PDF Print E-mail

Or a phony Madonna dealing blackjack, or a fake Dolly Parton serving drinks. All part of the glitzy Vegas scene, but who needs it?
