Minnesota restaurant roasts Randy Moss with luncheon specials

By Cindy Boren

It's Randy Moss Day at Tinucci's restaurant in Newport, Minn.

That's the joint whose cuisine was panned in an impromptu food review by James Beard Randy Moss when it catered locker room lunch for the Minnesota Vikings.

Gus Tinucci is giving the first 50 patrons who bring Moss gear a free lunch ... and everybody else eats from the buffet for $8.40, a unique tribute to No. 84. He plans to ship the jerseys and stuff to the Boys & Girls Club in Nashville, where Moss's new team plays.

Tinucci's food gets a thumbs up from one member of the Vikings...that's suddenly overlooked quarterback Brett Favre. "I was sitting in my locker eating the food" when Moss complained, Favre told reporters. He added: "I thought it was pretty good."
