My View: A Restaurant Review That Was Bound To Be Good
Craig Neier & Sunny Sessa

Before any of the assembled food connoisseurs put a morsel in their mouths you just knew the reviews would be all thumbs up.  How could they not be, we all prepared the food ourselves under the supervision of award-winning food movie producer and Cookbook Author, Judy Olney. ……..  The special event organized by master entertainment specialist Craig Neier was a surprise birthday celebration for a lady who has dined in the finest establishments worldwide and on occasion also cooks for her friends..the birthday girl Sunny Sessa.  Sunny is known for usually being in full command, at the head of the table and strongly “recommending” menu choices.  This time she had to abide by instructions of Judy Olney the former Washington Times Restaurant Critic. The group was gathered for the event in Olney’s beautiful 1924 historic home.    Happy Birthday Sunny, “We Knew You Were Coming And We Baked A Cake”
