Dinner with Gangsters and Ghosts

It was a great meal and tour! We learned about the Chinese Gangs and Mafia Dons and what became of them. We walked to Washington Square Park and learned about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, the hanging tree in the Park, and a tragic partying event in the Arch that sits in the park at the base of Fifth Avenue.

Saltbae Burger

Saltbae’s New York Burger consists of six ounces of tender Wagyu beef with lettuce, tomato, and onions. I opted out of the Pepper Jack cheese. With the burger came fabulous French fries. The quality of the beef, fries, and their respective seasonings were over the top delicious. I plan to return soon and sample other burger options. If you’re in the Gramercy Park area and crave a simple but delicious classic meal, you’ll want to try Saltbae.

Boozy Brunch at the Cutting Room

Mark and Mathew know thousands of tunes and what’s performed works starts with requests paid for via Venmo. If someone in the audience doesn’t like the song they’re playing, they can outbid that song. whereas Mark and Mathew stop immediately and play the new request. If no one sends a paid request, Mark and Mathew play the Baby Shark Song until the audience is numb and desperate for something new.

If you’re midtown and near Park Avenue, and especially during lunchtime check it out. You might see a famous athlete, television or movie star. One never knows who they will see in The Big Apple or at The Regency Bar and Grill. PS. I saw Ramona Singer from The Real Housewives of New York City. It was a fun sighting!
