Dylan Jones: 'Elaine’s makes you think of Woody Allen, who shot the restaurant scene in 'Manhattan' here'
Saturday 06 March 2010
Elaine's. Just saying it makes you think of New York; of Tom Wolfe, Gay Talese and Norman Mailer, quarrelling over their early evening drinks and talking about money and girls. Makes you think of Woody Allen (who shot the opening restaurant scene in Manhattan here), makes you think of Warren Beatty, of Michael Caine and Jackie O. Makes you think of cocktails, of tortoni, spumoni, zabaglione and puntarelle, of large desserts and proper Upper East Side royalty.

Some of the greatest male minds, from Sigmund Freud to Billy Chrystal, have wrestled with the subject. Does it exist? What is its evolutionary purpose? Can it be faked?
