NYC Restaurant with Singing Waiters

HI! DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A RESTAURANT OR RESTAURANTS IN MANHATTAN WHERE THE WAITERS SING? I USED TO HAVE THE NAME OF ONE BUT CAN'T FIND IT. ANYONE OUT THERE WHO CAN HELP? THANKS! SUSIE
You may be thinking of Asti's at 13 E. 12th Street, which had opera singing staff. But Asti's closed after 70-some years and became Strip House, a quite decent (though pricey) steakhouse. Hey, Asti's was expensive, too!
The staff at Don't Tell Mama is comprised primarily of Broadway musical wannabes, and they, too, sing, though not while they're waiting tables.
You'd think with the number of thrushes wandering our streets that there would be dozens of singing restaurants!
If you don't mind a diner (I can't vouch for the food since I've never been), try calling Ellen's Stardust Diner, 1650 B'way, 956-5151 to see if they still sing there.
Other theme restaurants like Johnny Rocket's usually have wait staff who sing, sometimes under obvious duress!
