National Arts Club Loses Dining Manager


DNA Info reports that, in the latest shake-up at the National Arts Club, longtime dining room manager Joseph Frappaolo will depart the club.

More from DNA Info:

Frappaolo, a beloved fixture at the club who ran its food operation for more than three decades, earned $248,346 in 2009-2010, more than any other club staffer, according to the club’s most recent tax filings.

He weathered controversy at the club for more than three decades, pleading guilty in 2002 to evading more than $160,000 in state and city sales taxes on meals sold at the club’s dining room, but avoiding jail by paying back more than $340,000 in interest and penalties.

Mr. Frappaolo’s departure, president Dianne Bernhard said in a statement, was part of an effort to make the club “fiscally responsible.”
