A popular eatery, safe house for wise guys
18 July 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Law And Order story is about Raimondo's a popular restaurant that is patronized by the legal and the illegal, cops and gangsters plus those who want to eat and stare. It's kind of a safe house or at least it was until two people were killed, a wise guy and a movie producer who was enjoying a big hit (no pun intended) film about gangster life. The film was based on bits and pieces heard in conversation at Raimondo's.

But what's heard at Raimondo's should stay there. Except Lenny Venito who always plays interesting characters absorbed it all and wrote a book that makes some people feel uncomfortable.

Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin eventually wind up in Jersey City where the identified hit man Bill Camp is brought to Manhattan after a bit of a turf war with Hudson County. The case is a lot more complex than originally thought involving two separate shootings for each victim with two different motives.

Real life cop Bo Dietl appears here in a small role as a small time Mook who is one of the shooters. What a sorry loser Dietl portrays and his motive is really one for the books.

Ray Abruzzo plays the man who gives Raimondo's its name. Let's say he does not like the way his sanctuary was disrespected.

Makes me curious enough to get reservations.
