772 Ninth Avenue. The food was delicious,
beginning with starters like Stuffed New Zealand
Mussels, Roasted Blue Point Oysters, Pulpa a la
Parilla, Arepas and Gravlox. Follwed by entrees
of prime beef, a 14 oz Filet Mignon, 26 oz K
Rico Sirloin, 50 oz Porterhouse and 72 oz
Tomahawk, accompanied by fine wines and liquor.
A plate of desserts completed the excellent
meal. The owner/chef John P. Greco III displayed
the enormous cuts of steak being served. It was
a fabulous culinary experience.

Love, Noel: The Songs and Letters of Noel Coward is
a production of the Irish Repertory Theatre in the
W. Scott Lucas Studio Theatre, devised and written
by Barry Day, starring KT Sullivan and Steve
Ross, directed by Charlotte Moore. Noel
Coward was a fine playwright, an actor on stage
and film, composed lovely songs, wrote witty lyrics
and knew every major celebrity. He also kept his
mother informed of all his major activities and
travels. The show quotes from his letters and many
of his songs are performed. The highlight was Why
Do The Wrong People Travel?, which received a
well deserved applause.
