Who says literature is boring? Legendary talk show host Dick Cavett takes us back to the 1971 episode of his show The Dick Cavett Show, providing play-by-play of an episode where Norman Mailer began a verbal fight with Gore Vidal and New Yorker journalist Janet Flanner. With an upscale lounge setting, the food at Eatery is also dressed up, with entrees like Pan Roasted Atlantic Salmon with sweet corn relish, baby basmati rice and seven vegetable slaw ($19.95). A great place for mixed drinks with an inviting atmosphere, Zanzibar specializes in inventive cocktails like the Rejuvenation with Grey Goose Vanilla, and cucumber, muddled with sugar and sour mix ($13). A fave of mine in the area for burgers, Island Burgers and Shakes offers one of the best burgers in the city that isn’t $80! Try the Princess Grace Burger with ham, boursin, mushroom, onion, and peppers on ciabatta ($7.50).
