"The Russian Tea Room: A Love Story"$75.00
For over eighty years, New York’s defining cultural moments have taken place at Russian Tea Room. Ever since members of the Russian Imperial Ballet founded the restaurant in 1927, it has been a second home for boldface names planned their next deals and feted their friends’ latest Carnegie Hall performances.
This recollection takes readers inside New York's famous restaurant, which was founded in 1927 by members of the Russian Imperial Ballet. Faith Stewart-Gordon charmingly recalls stories from the Tea Room, like the time when Dustin Hoffman showed up in drag for his role in Tootsie. Celebrity appearances are the draw here, and there are plenty of cameos from the restaurant's heyday in the 1970s and '80s: Sam Cohn, Woody Allen, Richard Burton, Helen Gurley Brown and Russian defectors Mikhail Baryshnikov and Rudolph Nureyev are some of the names that crop up in this rare, previously-owned book.
