His most notable restaurant was the now-shuttered Sign of the Dove, a " shamelessly high-end" Upper East Side restaurant known as both a destination for socialites and the most romantic date spot in town. When couples came to dine, Santo would "carve a potato into the shape of a rose, color it with food coloring and present it to the lady." [NYT]
