Forlini's at Mid-Century

I'm a fan of the great, but somehow little known, Forlini's restaurant, so I was excited to see they put some vintage photos up on their website of the place back in the 1950s and 60s.

Forlini's dates to 1943. It's a favorite place for judges, lawyers, and other people involved in the justice system, thanks to its location close to the State Supreme Court house.

Tourists to Little Italy seem to be completely ignorant of its existence, and let's hope it stays that way.

About once a month or so, you can go and hear the song stylings of Mr. Angelo Ruggiero, a scene that should not be missed.
