A tropical night in Manhattan gave rise to the grand re-launching of Fantasticks-producer TONY NOTO new wine shoppe emporium, at 34th and Third, MURRAY HILL WINES.
Partnered with next-door neighbor, sushi-themed restaurant MOCCO, they provided a wonderful night out in NYC, with a nice sampling of brand new titles from Shannon Ridge and Wente wines ... and, a terrifically inspired organic-vodka we particularly liked, Square One. Mocco provided some of the best sushi we've had this year, and a fantastic home-made pizza with tomatoes and beef. We also feasted on edamame; home made potato chips; and, seared chicken wings. Our thanks to Nobu and Mocco-owner Frank Hau.Noto hopes to make this new enterprise as successful as his previous enterprises, "We've introduced a whole selection of the new Green-wines ... the, next step in eco-friendly spirits.They're terrific ... everyone should try them!" Noto, who penned THE STOKER FILE last year is prepping another Broadway-project in his future too, BALD EAGLES. "Its politically oriented", he adds. Appearing for this event, was, ROBERT FUNARO from The Sopranos; Celebrity Service's BILL MURRAY; RANDY JONES from The Village People; Penthouse-pet KRISTA AYNE with Penthouse-pr chieftain LAINE SPEISER; PR-pasha DAVID SALIDOR; KEITH GIRARD from The Improper; and, RACE TAYLOR from WPLJ. Also stopping by were famed art dealer Derek Storm and artist Sean Paul.
