Healthy Domingo opens NY restaurant, ready to sing

Healthy Domingo opens NY restaurant, ready to sing

Placido Domingo is back _ ready to sing around the world.
But first, on Monday, the star tenor opened his new Manhattan restaurant _ just weeks after colon cancer surgery.
The 69-year-old Spaniard said he was lucky to have experienced pain while on tour in Japan. He flew back to New York, where a malignant polyp was found and surgically removed last month.
He looked rested and tanned during a private opening party for the restaurant Zengo, which he co-owns with restaurateur Richard Sandoval.
Amid talk of tapas and tequila, Domingo addressed a much more serious subject: colonoscopies. He said he'd never had one before and urged people to "just do it!"
Domingo sings the title role in Verdi's "Simon Boccanegra" at Milan's La Scala, starting April 16.
