APLIC Banquet at Meli-Melo Restaurant
Description and Photos by Jean Sack

Anil Kumar's choice of Melo Melo restaurant for the Tuesday banquet made for decorative dining! Multiple courses of elaborately crafted plates of food brought forth laughter with each new creation and final applause for the chef. We devoured Seuss-like hats of stacked veggies, huge plates of entrées with herbal plumes and cleverly arranged side dish décor, checkerboarded mousse desserts, and a finale of chocolates. Those of us who peeked in the kitchen witnessed the imported staff, working in crowded quarters, who crafted the designer dinners and delights. Immigration and work was a constant theme in New York.
