Secret Identity

16 January 2019 - 03:04 AM

How many of us have secret identities on the board? I have two that I use from time to time - both female names.

How many others have them?

Quilted Giraffe

10 January 2019 - 11:19 PM

Since we appear obsessed with NYC significant restaurants of the past, does anyone want to write a Quilted Giraffe review? It was the restaurant that introduced Nouvelle Cuisine to NYC.

While where at it how about reviews on The Palace, The Duck Joint, Artie's Warehouse, Manny Wolf's, Top of the Sixes, Lutece, Gold Coin, Parioli Romanissimo, The Jockey Club, Raga, Luchow's, Grotta Azzurra, The Bank and Gage & Tollner???

NYC's Toughest Dining Reservation

18 December 2018 - 06:10 PM

NYC's toughest dining reservation isn't Frenchette or Le Cou Cou or Olmsted or Atomix or any other high-level place that comes to mind.

 

By far it's the Blue Box Cafe. I have been trying for months to get in anytime during December and January. Peggy has been craving to go, but no luck. I'm on the waiting list for nine specific dates - no luck yet. They open their reservations 30 days in advance at 9am est. Still impossible.

 

And there is no secret number unless you spend over six figures in their downstairs store.

 

So there it is.


Baby It's Cold Outside

14 December 2018 - 05:27 PM

Going to another Christmas Concert next week where every version of Baby It's Cold Outside will be performed. No other song will be played. Think there are 58 versions - at last count.

 

It's a tribute to the Loessers as a thank you for this great song and their performance of it over the years.

 

My favorite version is the Nancy Lamott, Michael Feinstein recording - they reverse the roles, quite ingenious.
