(Newser) – A chubby mobster has been barred from eating at New York restaurants known as Mafia hangouts, reports the New York Post. Anthony "Fat Tony" Rabito, 75, was just paroled on gambling, extortion, and racketeering charges, and he can no longer chow down at a string of wise guy spots, his probation officer has warned him. Seems like hard times are just beginning for the reputed consigliere of the Bonanno crime family.

Skipping one seafood spot very near his Brooklyn home is going to be especially tough, he tells friends. "I used to go there three, four times a week," he grumbled. "They got great mussels."
