There used to be a nice little Italian family restaurant in Salem, NH called “F. G. Sarducci’s.” It was a decent place; I ate there a few times, and wanted to go back. They did unspeakably wonderful things with veal, and some nights they had a live piano player for entertainment. The staff was friendly, and the place was cozy and comfortable without being too dark, like some other places I’ve been.
Alas, they only lasted about a year. Restaurants, I’ve noticed, either last about a year or indefinitely.
But I couldn’t get too broken up about it, when the Sarducci’s sign came down…
And up went a “COMING SOON — HOOTERS!” sign.
I think I’ll manage to adjust…
