Dining Out: Dino’s: Astoria night spot gets garlicky Montenegrin twist

Dino’s, the restaurant that now occupies the Astoria space formerly know as Amici Amore and Butcher Brothers, is the same but different. Ownership has remained within the Redzic clan. The menu is only slightly different. It’s a matter of emphasis, really. Comment.

The Play’s The Thing: Admire the power of dance with Thalia Theatre’s tango

I have always admired those who move well on the dance floor, not being very good at it myself (although I have been known to fake it on occasion). Back in 1963 when my first wife and I took our vows at the Bayside Jewish Center, I did manage an adequate waltz to the music of “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” (Rodgers & Hart). I was obligated to do my best, not only because the former Lois Abramowitz was a whiz — you should have seen her do the twist — but my in-laws had paid extra for a violin or two in the band.
