Quarterdeck has a new lease!

Today the Quarterdeck neighborhood restaurant signed a fifteen-year lease agreement with its landlord.  Quarterdeck owner Lou Gatti noted that he and the landlord, who are friends, had difficulties similar to common family disagreements.  Mr Gatti wrote in an email:
I want to thank all of you for the kind emails and the memories of the Quarterdeck you shared. Like you, I have always loved the Quarterdeck from my first visit, which was over 3 decades ago. The most moving story was from someone who lamented she would not be able to bring her children to the QD, as her parents had done with her.

Patrick Morrogh, a nine year veteran of the QD [Quarterdeck] and a manager, will take over the day to day operations. I think the younger folks need to implement fresh ideas. At 62, I will still be in charge of something, but I don’t know what.
As a Quarterdeck patron lamented while pondering its impending closing, there aren't many places left like the Quarterdeck.  Fortunately, at least the Quarterdeck will be here for at least another fifteen years.
