“I dedicate my work every day to the colleagues I lost on 9/11” – chef Michael Lomonaco.
Michael Lomonaco loves food and people. But it was an act of hate that pushed him into the spotlight: the tragic events of September 11th, 2001.
This story originally appeared in the Toronto Star a few months after 9/11. This is the 15th anniversary of that tragic event.
NEW YORK: Michael Lomonaco is a mensch.
I first noticed him at a sumptuous Italian buffet laid on by some of this city’s top chefs for a group of food writers gathered here almost 10 years ago.
