Roughly 2,000 victims, including charities, celebrities and well-heeled individuals, were caught up in Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, and restaurateur Nino Selimaj wants to give them a free entrée.
This is no swindle; Selimaj is asking that people who have been duped by Madoff bring their monthly client account statements from Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC to his restaurant to qualify for edible reparations for two valued at $60. The offer is good until Friday, March 20.
“I have customers telling me they had $100 million,” Selimaj said, “and now they’re completely broke. I can’t give them money, but for one week I can give them a free meal.”
Nino’s 208, at 208 E. 58th St. and Third Avenue, requires customers to call 212-750-7766 in advance to make a reservation. Identities will be concealed.
