After his Saturday night concert at Sunrise’s BB&T Center, Billy Joel stopped by Sardelli’s Italian Steakhouse in Hollywood with a group of 14.
Joel compared Sardelli’s to Rao’s, the famous New York City Italian restaurant, which The Wall Street Journal called “the single toughest restaurant reservation to get in the United States, bar none.”
“This is like the Rao's of South Florida,” Joel said.
The piano man asked chef Fulvio Sardelli Jr. to cook for the table. Here’s what the restaurant is now calling the Billy Joel Menu.
