John Gotti Jr.’s Last Meal


The mini-don doubtlessly loves seafood prepared in the Italian manner, and there’s no better place in town for it than Umberto’s on Arthur Avenue in Belmont, which I like better than the one in Manhattan’s Little Italy. He can sit outside on a sunny afternoon and enjoy the lemony seafood salad of squid, conch, and shrimp, then go on to the deep-fried shrimp balls with super-hot marinara dipping sauce, served with rock-hard Sicilian toasts. But hey, dude, better watch your back, because Umberto’s was where mobster “Crazy Joe” Gallo was rubbed out!
