I can’t even tell you the name of the restaurant in Las Vegas, but it might have been in a hotel. It was in 1979, and we went to a leather boothed steak house. The waiters were older black men in tuxedos who where truly professional. The place just oozed tradition and the food, cocktails and service were impeccable.

I recently watched Broadway Danny Rose. Half the scenes are shot at Carnegie Deli.

I enjoyed watching the movie just to see the scenes of old NYC. OTOH, it made me feel so old.

Strawberry Mansion was kind of historic, in Melbourne Florida. It was sold and remodeled, which I wouldn't care for now.

Oh god that looks good. Maybe when I head home in April.

I was just thinking about this thread and remembering when I went to Wales and ended up eating a pizza in a 1500s-era building, which totally cracked me up.

THIS!! A martini is gin, a vodka martini is vodka.

I hate that they call those stupid shots in a martini glass a martini. Vodka, grapefruit, and basil in a martini glass is not a martini.
Katz's Deli is amazing! When I return to NYC, I'd love to go there again. I regret I never got to Carnegie Deli, before that closed.

1848? Wow, I'm amazed it stayed operational within the same family for that many years! Hopefully the new owner keeps things the same, and doesn't mess with what has kept that restaurant successful.

Are you talking about Binion's in Las Vegas, which used to be called Binion's Horseshoe Casino? Ugh I walked inside there twice on my past Las Vegas trip(once because it was so damn cold, and I was taking some nighttime pics of the neon signage outside those casinos on my February 2019 Las Vegas trip), and sadly to say that casino was a DUMP inside. It's also a really bad sign if you enter from the back entrance(kitty corner away from California Casino), that you see all these out of order slot machines freely stored in that area closely next to each other. I'm sure once upon a time Binion's used to be much nicer(in the Binion's Horseshoe days), but it no longer is now sadly. Also it's a bad sign if the hotel tower is abandoned, and after I came back from Las Vegas, I saw a walkthrough video of someone sneaking up to one of the abandoned hotel floors! That hotel tower was originally part of The Mint btw, before Binion's Horseshoe expanded into where The Mint once was around 1988. Anyway, enjoy this vid if you're curious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=intSfDqQObo

The Playboy Club in Century City, LA. I was underage, very young, and Rod Stewart was there as a customer, so that was plenty historic to me.

Russian Tea Room, NYC

Acme Oyster Bar, NOLA

Not sure if it is historical, but we've eaten at Cipriani's in Venice, Italy. Food must have been mediocre because I don't recall the meal, just the experience.

I'd loved to have gone to the General Wayne Inn, but it closed about 7 months after I'd moved to the area.

I've been to McGillens a few times.

Could have been one of several but it sounds like either the Freemont hotel or the El Cortez to me.
