The Post mistakenly reported that Caviarteria was closing. I just called and Caviarteria said they are, thankfully, open and bustling.
The Post said that the 59th & Park (Delmonico Hotel) was going to close because Trump bought the building and is going to convert it to condos. But Caviarteria isn't closing. A woman who answered the phone said the information was incorrect.
I love the salmon tenderloin and salmon pastrami :-)
It's funny--I love the uptown Caviarteria (and I'm not an uptown kind of girl), but have always hated the one in the Soho Grand; while the service uptown is friendly, the space is airy and cozy, and the food (the non-caviar food, that is) tastes freshly prepared, my experience at the downtown branch has been that the service has been awful (in particular, the waitstaff spends a lot of vocal social time on the phone), the food is at odd temps, and the room is nearly always empty (which isn't something I care for).
