lense, but the meals dished up from his world famous Tribeca Grill -- which
Nierporent co-owns with film star Robert DiNiro -- are the stuff of legend.
Nierporent's Chicken Francese show s just how far the chef has come since his
first day job as a grill man at New York's first McDonald's!

I came home from work today to a surprise meal from my husband who knows I love Chicken Franchese. I waitressed in Italian restaurants for years and this meal was by far one of the best I have had. He was worried I wouldn't like the taste, but he was very wrong... :-) I am so full right now but wanted to share my comments. Kuddo's to the person who posted this. Cheers!
