Sidecars and Caviar With the Ghost of Frank Sinatra

Original Article: "Sidecars and Caviar With the Ghost of Frank Sinatra"

Frank Sinatra did it.

Mick Jagger did it.

A bunch of other people you’ve definitely heard of did it.

We’re talking, of course, about seeing, being seen and sipping some champagne at the Pump Room during its glory days.

And now it’s your turn at the recently revamped restaurant that now goes by the name Booth One, which was a favorite table among the celebrity crowd back in the day. It’s open now. Here’s the slideshow.

This legendary establishment has passed the proverbial torch to Lettuce Entertain You. They’ve done things like expanded the lounge with a stately marble bar and an abundance of high-top tables, perfect for gazing at the floating orb light fixture—which remains untouched—in the dining room.

And then there’s that booth. It’s still reserved for capital A-listers, but if you happen to snag a seat in it, you can call your mom on its vintage rotary phone to tell her all about it while enjoying a Lobster Cappuccino. Chef Doug Psaltis’ menu is just the right amount of over-the-top for the setting. Classic caviar service. Côte de boeuf covered in black truffle béarnaise. Things like that.

Cap all that off with a Harvest Sidecar, a seasonal concoction that combines applejack, spiced pear, Combier and allspice. “Just call me Mr. Sinatra,” you might then say.

You might also not say that.
