I admire the entrepreneurial spirit as much as the next woman, but I just have to wonder (to quote late-night talk hostess Joyce Riley) – “What were they thinking?”

I am musing about the sign currently placed at the front of the former Bella Napoli, the former Il Trulli, the former Limoncello, the former Rocco’s: it announces that a “Mex/Italian Restaurant” is coming soon.

Two great cuisines.  But will they really be enhanced by an arranged marriage? Nachos Alfredo? Menudo Bolognese? Horchata panna cotta?

Hmm, come to think of it, a sweet rice panna cotta might not be bad…….
