Chumley’s NYC was a prohibition restaurant and as a published author of Eat What You Want! Stop When You Want! A No-Diet, Weight-Loss Program I knew I had to check it out.  Chumley’s is near The Cherry Lane Theatre in Manhattan’s West Village.  It’s rumored that in the 1920s, Chumley’s was a speakeasy frequented by some illustrious writers.

I ventured out into the pouring rain.

Hemingway was a regular and there are 273 spaces for author’s book covers.  Very cool!!

Saving room for dessert,  I ordered the Little “Gem” Caesar salad. On top of the fresh greens were Garlic Chile Bread Crumbs, Pecorino ( the name given to all Italian cheeses made from sheep’s milk.), and Smoked Trout Dressing served on the side. My dining partner ordered the double patty burger.

I had a Rhubard Foster for dessert, which I split with my friend.  This mouth-watering dish was flamed with Jamaican rum and accompanied by strawberry ice cream and chunks of rhubarb seasoned with brown sugar.
