Danny Aiello stars in DINNER RUSH, a dark comedy that mixes gangsters, the restaurant business, family, and a wry sense of humor.

Aiello plays Louis Cropa, the owner of an Italian restaurant in New York City, who also has a bookmaking operation on the side. Two hoods from Queens kill his longtime partner and demand that he turn over both his gambling business and his restaurant. They also put the squeeze on one of his favorite chefs, who owes them a hefty gambling debt. Meanwhile, Lou’s master chef son, is pestering Dad to give him the family restaurant business.

In the end Lou makes a series of important decisions that affects the lives of everybody.
