NYC restaurant claims no fault in Tommy Lasorda heart attack!

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (NOVEMBER 09, 2010) (HOLLYWOODTV) - The owner of the Italian restaurant where Tommy Lasorda ate the night before his heart attack insists that his restaurant is a fine establishment and is not responsible for the baseball legend's coronary catastrophe. 

Anthony Bamonte, owner of the 112-year-old Bamonte's in Brooklyn told media outlets that Lasorda's heart attack on Monday "had nothing to do with the food here. 

A heart attack is a heart attack." Lasorda ate on Sunday night at the restaurant and Bamonte said he ate fresh mozzarella with tomato, linguini, and clam sauce, and veal scaloppine pizzaiola with mushrooms with red wine. Bamonte said he wouldn't suggest a different menu for Lasorda next time he visits, adding, "Tommy is Tommy. You're not gonna change Tommy."

Lasorda was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Monday, where doctors inserted a stent in his heart to correct a blocked artery. A rep for the Dodgers says he's resting comfortably in stable condition.
