Bernard Madoff, restaurateur

Oh, no—he was one of ours!

A newly released listing of Bernie Madoff’s assets shows the confessed swindler held an interest in such restaurants as the P.J. Clarke’s in New York’s Wall Street area and the famed La Brea Bakery in Los Angeles, the Bloomberg News Service reported this morning. Now prosecutors say they intend to seize those holdings, along with a slew of others, to recoup what they can for victims of Madoff’s $65-billion Ponzi scheme.

The Bloomberg report, based on documents released Tuesday, also show that Madoff was an investor in an unnamed online delivery service.
