Gotta love a big boozy dinner out. My old pal John Moore and I catch up every couple of months and take turns as to whose shout it is. This time it was my turn and I turned to Ama, a restaurant I’d encountered first a few weeks ago for a business meeting. On a quiet stretch of Macdougal Street in SoHo, it is the first restaurant I have found in New York that reminds me of my favourite Italian at home, Elio.
Last time I visited Ama, the food (from Puglia, the boot of Italy) and service were excellent; this time the food continued to be very good, but the service was almost non-existent. Never mind; John and I had so much to catch up on we were not in a hurry.
