It was only a matter of time before attention-hungry restaurateur Nino Selimaj figured a way to cash in on the Bernie Madoff saga. New York's most successful Albanian-born Italian restaurant owner says that he'll be giving away free meals at Nino's 208 on East 58th Street to anyone who was ripped off by Bernie all this week, so long as they mention the schemer when making reservations and bring a monthly statement from Madoff's investment firm to the restaurant. One quick way to make the deal work even if you weren't victimized by Bernie: Buy an authentic Madoff statement on Ebay for $21 and then order the $25 osso buco. [City Room]
