Welcome Back, Roberto Donna!

James Beard Award-winning Italian chef and notorious tax cheat Roberto Donna is en route back to Washington today, escaping his culinary exile in Arizona after signing a one-year contract to cook at the forthcoming La Forchetta on New Mexico Avenue NW. Post food critic Tom Sietsema got the scoop late Tuesday. Owner Hakan Ilhan says he has a plan for success, telling Sietsema that he aims to keep the talented but trouble-plagued chef away from anything to do with “paying people or suppliers.” Smart!

    ATTENTION PUBLIC! DO NOT SUPPORT ROBERTO DONNA OR ANY BUSINESS HE IS AFFILIATED WITH. HE IS A CONVICTED EMBEZZLER AND TAX EVADER AND OWES HARD WORKING PEOPLE THE MONEY THEY WERE CHEATED OUT OF. STOP PATRONIZING THIS HACK, HIS FOOD ISN'T EVEN THAT GOOD. HE DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE IN THE RESTAURANT BUSINESS.

    YOU ARE SUPPORTING MAFIA CARTELS IN SICILY BY SUPPORTING THIS FAT FUCK. DONT DO IT!
