Bro, Pass the Pasta

Philadelphia Flyers at Cafe Martorano Carb city. Women complain that real men don’t hit the soiree circuit in Manhattan. I feel as if this photo of hockey players chowing down Italian-style, shows a peak at a world that we rarely see on the celeb circuit here in Manhattan. The Philadelphia Flyers are facing off against the Florida Panthers tonight, but they got into town a day early to feast at Chef (and Philly native) Steve Martorano’s famed Café Martorano in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The whole team, including star players Matt Read and Wayne Simmons, was on hand for a true Italian-American Sunday dinner, enjoying homemade Mozzarella, stuffed Zucchini Flowers, Philly Cheesesteaks (a taste of home), Baked Clams, Rigatoni with Oxtail, Veal Chop, Mac and Cheese, Red Velvet Cake and more. The team has won their past three games in a row and are hoping the carb fest will fuel them for the ice tonight!
