A Night Of Dining Out At A-Mano in Ridgewood


A-Mano
Say Mel, how would you like to join me for dinner at A-Mano wrote my friend Keith Sly. He had just sent me a release on A-Mano and knew that I am a foodie. We met recently at the restaurant located at 24 Franklin Avenue where Keith explained some of the foods to me and made sure I met Manager Eric Ryan.
He also introduced me to the chefs behind the counter. Andrew is the taller one with the dark hair and Rob is the shorter one when you look at the pictures of the quaint brick ovens in the background.

Keith ordered two different pizzas plus a salad for us to share. Afterwards, with plenty left over for another meal at home, we had some of their gelato. Eric stood behind the case and dipped small plastic spoons so that we could taste the different flavors and select one that was pleasurable to our palates. Of course they were all pleasurable, but not wanting to keep Eric bending over too much and possibly running out of sample spoons, I selected the pistachio.

Questioning the small elevator that I saw, Keith explained that they had room upstairs for private parties if needed. I planted the seed in his mind that our Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club could use it for one of our International Dinner nights, a Neapolitan affair.

 By New Jersey standards, A Mano is very good, but despite it's being started by a native Neopolitan, the food is a huge disappointment.  Granted, my husband was born and raised in Italy, so his standards are high.  First of all, the wood burning oven - which always has flames in it - should not have flames.  There should be red-hot embers only. The flames burn the pizza, and that's what my husband and I got when we ate there recently.  Second, american teenagers are cooking and it's clear to us that they were not trained well.  A native italian employee who served us agreed with our complaint after dinner, but explained that he can't do anything because it's not his place to criticize.    If the prices weren't so high, I wouldn't be critical.  It's just a disappointment that more care wasn't paid to how fantastic this restaurant could have been.  Oh, and the gelato is powder based.

I don't know about American cooks  .. please note .. in the USA it is American and not american.

It's quite easy to criticize someone else's actions but your criticism,other than price, is general. As it happens, my pizza wasn't burnt so your charring, while jarring, may have been the exception.

To quote a server is reaching for straws. Did you call the manager over and ask or explain to him about the problem? He is much more knowledgeable than the ordinary wait staff and probably would have made sure that you were satisfied.

I know that I was satisfied!

Excuse me.   I thought this was a consumer site.  I didn't realize that people who are obviously highly protective of the A Mano restaurant were going to shut down public opinon so sharply.  Get a life!
