Penguin takes a job at Bamonte’s Restaurant while on the run, and discovers its where mob head Maroni has his meetings. Bamonte’s is a real restaurant located in Williamburg, still in operation, and contains one of the city’s last surviving wooden phone booths. The proprietor told us they still work but Bell Telephones went out of business years ago, of course. According to reports, the right booth still works to take incoming calls. And in the left booth, you can – surprisingly – still call out. The scenes, interior and exterior, are shot at the original Bamonte’s.
