A Tribute to Chita Rivera at Café Carlyle

A Tribute to Chita Rivera at Café Carlyle – she doesn’t just take the stage at Café Carlyle, she hoists it over her shoulder and walks off with it and so in love with being on a stage that you wonder what pitiful amount of energy she might have left to devote to other matters.

The Winter Show: Supporting The East Side House Settlement

NEW YORK, NY – The Winter Show: Supporting The East Side House Settlement, which has served people in need for 130 years. Philanthropic lawyer Everett Wheeler founded the organization in 1891 on the Upper East Side House. Wheeler and a small group of volunteers “settled” in the neighborhood and crafted a mission to serve the community through education.

Amali Mediterranean Restaurant

My recent venture to Amali Mediterranean Restaurant reminded me that dining out in New York City is always enjoyable. That is especially so if you enjoy the food and are delighted with the entire “restaurant” experience.

Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden

Just north of the Queensborough Bridge in Manhattan I recently discovered the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden while hurrying to an appointment on East 68th Street. Once I saw it, I stopped and could hardly take my eyes off this cozy, charming, well-maintained, 18th-century hotel. Its locked gates and imposing stone wall were mysterious, and I knew I must get inside to see the gardens and building.

Beyond Sushi

Beyond Sushi restaurant on New York’s upper east side was a fun, friendly, and comfortable place, delivering an ergonomic experience beyond my expectations. Entering, as my mind briefly drifted into a hazy sentimental sojourn of cheese babka, burgers, pizza, zeppoles, and sausage and peppers, I was mesmerized by the establishment’s skilled chefs who created miraculous textures, flavors, and the beauty of an innovative sushi roll.

Elio’s in Yorkville

Elio’s is an old-school Italian restaurant with close, intimate seating. While this arrangement made the room a bit noisy by 7 pm, the food service was outstanding, with delicious dishes brought quickly to tables.
