Friends: Howard Gruber
Autumn is for nostalgia. I look through old scrapbooks and come across an ad for my friend Howard Gruber's second Provincetown restaurant -- he'd been co-owner of Front Street, one of Provincetown's coolest places. ... I love that he dug out his old Bar Mitzvah picture to announce the opening of his new place. (It didn't remain a "deli" for long ... Howard was a fine cook and soon the place was advertising fine dining.
Howard was one of those gone too soon --- born in 1941, died in 1993. RIP Howard ... I remember sweet things you said to me and I remember a promise you asked me to make. I made it, and I've kept it.
