22 Greeting Sirio on his 80th birthday
23 I asked Sirio when he planned on putting Massimo to work in the restaurant.
24 I have known Sirio since I first ate at Le Cirque when it opened at Manhattan's Mayfair Hotel in 1974. I followed him when Le Cirque moved to the New York Palace Hotel and then to its present location in the Bloomberg Building.
25 Throughout the years, Sirio has always been the most charming gentleman and restaurateur who always hires the best chefs. I love eating at Le Cirque.
26 This is Sirio's youngest son, Mauro, with his lovely daughter Stella.
27 Here I am with the actor and singer, Gianni Russo. Gianni has played many tough guys - remember him as Carlo Rizzi in The Godfather? His daughter, Gia, used to work for my company.
