Which day are you going, I was going to go on Friday, to see the lots.

Latour, Agree with you about the tourist trap thing, but with liquidation items could be priced to SELL!!

just spoke to the auction house, it is undecided as to the sale. They will either sell all the lots as one entire one or individual. Waiting currently for the list to be emailed to me.


yea let me know


That is the wine list that they are sending me. Some of the other items are online. The next question is how were these wines stored?
I could have sworn that their wine list was 4-6 pages when we were there a few years ago for my birthday.

I wish I could access my blog in the office, but it is blocked, but I am sure that I wrote a review on this place on my blog. I think I called it a tourist trap, and called the food "mediocre catering food at best," and remember my steak being overcooked. I will have to check it tonight when I get home. -mJ
I actually had fond memories of the place. About fifteen years ago,during her Fall Break, my daughter and I were visiting NYC. We were having a very busy day going through the Met., then walking through the Park. We happened upon the place and went in. It was a cool, clear, brisk late October day. The place was not very crowded at all.

We had a small version "afternoon tea". The service was excellent and the wait staff was very cheery (esp. for NYers). My daughter still remarks about that delightful afternoon we spent there and the very pretty setting! Maybe just there at the right time.

I feel that about alot of places Sandy,

you go in with no pretensions, no assumptions that you'll get your money's worth and just enjoy yourself in a beautiful setting within the park.

Though, the food like the rainbow room, did suck =)

went to the auction today, apparently they had no proper cellar and bottles were stored randomly throughout nooks and crannies,

I'm not sure I trust the provenance of the wines.
