Some Sad News re: Joe from BAT:

Just heard that Joe from Bay Ave. Trattoria passed away today. He was a wonderful chef and a great guy. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Maggie and her family.

    1. Wow - quite a shock, I think we were all waiting to hear different news that he opened a new place here, not up in heaven - oh my, they will be eating great short ribs for a long time up there....

      1. There are several post on his Facebook page from friends and family. A nice tribute to a man who was obviously loved and respected. RIP

        1. We are more than shocked at my house, having eaten Joe's food for what seems like our entire lives. RIP.
