Ponzi Shockwaves

New, 2 comments

We get news of the first restaurateur affected by the Madoff $50 billion ponzi scheme: Nancy Silverton, owner of Pizzeria Mozza and Osteria Mozza in LA, lost over $5 million. And possibly the only thing more heartbreaking than the huge loss is discovering it en route to the Laundry: "They were on their way to have dinner at the famous restaurant the French Laundry. 'My father called my cell,' she said. 'He said, 'We’ve lost everything.' I went into a kind of surreal shock...All I have is my restaurant now. We just can’t believe it.'" [Time via ENY]
