Looking Forward, Looking Back

December 27, 2018 | Frank Bonanno

Listen Marco. No don’t look at that picture, look at this one,  the old one. It’s faded now, too faded. That happens with Polaroid film. Since I can’t really show it to you, you have to let me describe it, so you can see the memory the way I do. We are toasting. Jacqueline’s on

I Bake Therefore I Yam

November 1, 2018 | Frank Bonanno

The title should say, “I Bake, Therefore I Sweet Potato” because, true story, a yam and a sweet potato are not the same thing. I only know this because I’ve been on a quest to recover from a marshmallow sweet potato upbringing into actually liking the darn things. This is not the first sweet potato recipe that

Good Morning Sweet Potato Cakes!

October 31, 2018 | Frank Bonanno

We always had sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving when I was growing up. Both my parents loved them, but I couldn’t stand that cloying sweetness in the middle of a savory meal–because when I was a kid, they were baked with brown sugar or maple syrup or marshmallows–maybe even smothered in reduced cola. Big family meals in

Ho’s Hot and Naked

August 10, 2018 | Frank Bonanno

by Jacqueline Bonanno The wall leading to Lou’s Hot and Naked holds some insanely expensive, trendy tile, and tomorrow afternoon (August 14)  Quang Ho is going utterly destroy it. No, enhance it. Elevate it. He’s going to paint a fire breathing chicken right on top of it. I feel I should explain. There was a

ThatNickGray is Awesome

July 16, 2018 | Frank Bonanno

Today at Washington Park, we’re pouring beer and playing Corn Hole, and pretty much just celebrating our group here at Bonanno Concepts as best we know how–with food and laughter. In truth, all family picnics should go the way our Family Picnic does, because we start the day by remembering our values. We recall the

Pizza Panzanella Salad

April 1, 2018 | Frank Bonanno

(Luca and Marco here on opening night of the first Bonanno Brothers Pizzeria. They love pizza as much as I do. Heck, everybody lives pizza. . ) I wrote about this and forgot to include the recipe, but it was late and I was thinking about pizza. Here are two recipes to make up for it

A Pizza Love Story

April 1, 2018 | Frank Bonanno

Jacqueline’s story goes something like this: We’d met working together and we’d been flirting a lot across the line. One day, I invited her to join me for pizza at Anthony’s downtown. She show up on her bicycle, and as she hops the sidewalk, sees me in the window, spinning a pizza. According to her,

Happy Valentine’s Day

February 2, 2018 | Frank Bonanno

(caught on camera, there, kissing Jacqueline) I love Valentine’s Day. Love the red and pink of it, love the Veuve Cliquot of it, love the awkwardness and the harmony in the love of love on Valentine’s Day. I love to greet guests that had to step on a trail of rose petals to get to
