Norwood Thomas met Joyce Morris in England during World War II and took every chance they had to be together. Unfortunately, Thomas was sent home to America abruptly when the war was over. They still sent letters, and he even asked Morris to marry him but after some misunderstanding, they lost touch.
70 years later, Morris asked her son to help her look up her old flame and she found him in an article about a D-Day Veteran who just crossed skydiving off his bucket list.
On Feb. 14, Brucie NYC, a hip little Italian spot in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill neighborhood, will be serving dishes such as "Pink Is The Flavor" (scallop, monkfish torchon, grapefruit, beet, breakfast radish) and "Breastiny's Child" (veal breast braciole, pickled fig, sopresatta, goat yogurt), as well as a few Jay-Z inspired choices. (Oysters Rocafella, anyone? How about some Jay-Ziti?)
