MOST CITIES ARE designed on grids that fill them with hard angles. Not Amsterdam, which has a softness about it imparted by the watery curves of the 16th-century canals that fan out through the city. Though its gabled canal houses and narrow medieval streets give it an undeniable old-world charm, Amsterdam’s thoroughly contemporary takes on arts, architecture and design show that it has modernity in a firm embrace.
Two legendary members of the Rolling Stones — Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood — and part of their entourage dined Friday at Giuseppe’s Ritrovo in Bexley. “It was first (and) foremost pretty surreal,” said Vesna Mangano, who co-founded the restaurant 19 years ago with her husband, Giuseppe. Jagger, who was staying Downtown, said he wanted “the best Italian in the city” and was directed toward Giuseppe’s, 2268 E. Main St. , Mangano said. Part of the touring crew arrived earlier that day to check out the restaurant, Mangano said. They later phoned in their reservation for 10, which was at 8:45 p. m. Jagger, Wood, his wife Sally Humphreys, keyboardist Matt Clifford, and other members of the retinue showed up for dinner. “They could not have been more gracious dining guests,” Mangano said. “From 9 o’clock to 10 o’c lock, the restaurant just got packed and around 11 it was mayhem outside and inside the restaurant. While some tried to sneak a photo, no one approached the band’s table, she said. “As (the crew) exited, someone from the bar just started applauding,” Mangano said. Mangano said she got a compliment, too. “On the way out, the keyboardist said this was the most normal dining experience they had,” she said.
