Dinner Rush (2000)

Is it just another evening at the hugely popular Italian restaurant of proprietor and bookmaker Louis Cropa (Danny Aiello) in New York? Anything but as tonight's guests include; a local police detective and his wife specially invited by the owner; on the balcony rival bookmaker gangsters from Queens who want to become partners in the restaurant; in the corner renowned food critic 'the food nymph' is her usual demanding self; and at the bar, seemingly unnoticed, is Ken. As the evening continues enter Duncan, inveterate gambler and sous-chef on-the-line in the frenetic kitchen downstairs, who acts as the catalyst that causes the evening to draw to its inevitable, explosive, deadly conclusion.


Gigino Trattoria Restaurant, 323 Greenwich Street and Duane Street, Manhtattan.
   

otsoNY Comments: The film only took 21 days to shoot and director Bob Giraldi was the actually the owner of the restaurant "Gigino" where the film takes place.
