and Daughters NANCY & TINA

at JILLY'S

NEW YORK





  Frank Sinatra, both the greatest singer and greatest entertainer of the 20th Century. No question. Sinatra was a legendary icon whose star still shines bright. He was a musical icon, celebrity, international personality, and to millions of Italian-Americans he was our own, a paisan. Frank was an Italian-American whose ancestry is from Genoa on his mother's side of the family and Sicilian on his father's side. And being Italian, Frank loved the food he grew up with, Dolly made a mean Marianara Sauce as well as Meatballs and the all-time Italian-American favorite Sunday Sauce (aka Gravy). Frank loved the food of his childhood; the Spaghetti & Meatballs, Stuffed Artichokes, Pasta Fazool, Frittata, Eggplant Parmigiana and all the usual suspects of the Italian-American table. It's a well known fact that Frank's favorite restaurant was Patsy's on 56th Street in New York ... When Frank went to Patsy's his favorite dishes were Calms Posillipo and Veal Milanese with a nice plate of Spaghetti Pomodoro in-between, and maybe a slice of Cheesecake to finish if Frank was in the mood.

Tony Sopranos Gabagool Sandwich



Gabagools






TONY SOPRANOS GABAGOOL SANDWICH



1. Gabagool
Definition : "Gabagool" is slang for "capicola." It is not a mispronunciation, but is instead in Napolitan dialect, which is what the Sopranos and many Italian-Americans use. The rule in this dialect is to chop off ending vowels and to voice unvoiced consonants.Ricotta-"rigot"
2. Manicotti-"manigot ...  gabagool= Capicola Ham.  "My wife sends me here to shop because they got good gabagool."   3. Gabagool
The Sicilian pronunciation for the spicy deli ham "Capicola".  "Do you want provologne on your gobagool sandwich?" 4. Gabagool - The americanized version of the Italian word "Capicola" made popular by Tony Soprano and other ignorant 2nd & 3rd generation Italo-Americans who have forgotten how to speak italian properly. Capicola is a spicy deli meat similar to ham or salami.
