"there is really nothing better than the combination of people you love and food you love at the same table."
Amen, brother!

I spent a lot of time at Bertucci's, I loved the mother-daughter waitress team from "da neighborhood" and how they used to ask me "Do you want saaahh-zidge wit dat?"

Lunches were the best, a great mixture of city workers and neighborhood types and families. Menu on the chalkboard. They were there since 1934, so 79 years is a damn good run I guess. Bertucci's may be gone, but the memories linger.
