Bill Gotti Sr. was, and remains, a remarkable man. He never wanted to go into the family business. His brother, legendary mob kingpin John Gotti, and his other siblings, Peter, Richard, Gene and Vincent followed John Gotti into what they call “the life.”
Bill went his own way. He opened a delicatessen in Brooklyn, where he served up a unique menu of Jewish and Italian food. Reuben sandwiches and blintzes took their place alongside manicotti, lasagna and other red gravy specials to create a unique dining experience.
