Just wondering... Old NYC Restaurants

Deb, was the Chinese place David K's? I got 'stuck' there once when my date didn't realize it was $30 combined cover + minimum pp. The Hermes and Grima jewelry got us a reprieve. Hugh Shannon was playing piano while the vertical minks cooed 'Hugh, play what you played me in Capri'!. HS also played the Bath + Tennis in WHB.

Regarding the Women's Exchange, also remembering Zoe Chase's (East 60th), and the Schrafft's on 13th and Fifth. NY Mag Best Bets wrote great reviews of these, now found in the entire magazine on Google books. At that Schrafft's, I would say 'Look mother, that lady is GASSED', and mom would say 'Don't look, dear'. My plate was a ham and butter sandwich on white with the crusts removed. That Schrafft's did NOT make the peter rabbit sundae.

The Monks Inn! Dates used to take me there..in college! Ha! Always stuck with spinach salad. Waiters were very forward, in cassocks.

What ever happened to Blum's?

Blums was where Fiorucci was, on East 59th st. Its decor was a sort of a dark pink and a light grey/almond. Ice cream sodas and candy! Light collation type food too, crab louie, etc. A special place, mom took me there to celebrate after I shed a leg cast. This would put it in the late sixties or early seventies. Thanks for asking, great to remember.
