Neighborhood Photo of the Day:

We give the Best Sense of Humor Award to Rita DiPietrantonio, co-owner of La Galleria 33 on Salem Street. The restaurant is currently being featured on Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares. In Part 1, the chef at La Galleria 33 drops a piece of chicken on the floor and then serves it. Chef Ramsay comes down pretty hard on sisters Rita and Lisa who own the restaurant and are presented in a less than flattering light. So, when I walked around for Halloween photos on Wednesday, I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw Rita outside the restaurant dressed as the “dropped chicken”!!! Read the show recap.
