On Tuesday my good friend Richard Vereschi passed away at 91. His restaurant The 88, was revolutionary, innovative and was often copied. He later would open Metamorphis and finally his coup d’ etat Richard’s Bistro, which literally paved the way to the now bustling Manchester restaurant scene. Richard was a true Maverick. Many famous celebrities and politicians enjoyed generous portions, eclectic fare,Richards famous chocolate mousse and creme brûlée and his quirky eccentric brand of hospitality during the many First in the Nation Presidential primaries. His favorite celebrity, Tim Russert, hands down! This is how I would like to remember him. RIP my friend Richard and thanks for the wonderful memories.
