Dinner at Bricco

Launch of Microsoft Office 2003On the day of the Office 2003 launch, a group of 16 of us went on an un-guided scenic walking tour of Manhattan. We ended up at Bricco, an Italian restaurant that managed to organize a private dining room for 16 at no notice, and provided first-class food with first-class service.
