Elaine Kaufman, of Elaine's, Dies

Elaine's was never my scene. I didn't like the status-conscious, self-congratulatory air or Ms. Kaufman's often belligerent, anti-hostess attitude. But a New York classic is a New York classic, and Elaine's, and Elaine, were one of a kind. So this is very sad news. Here's the Times obit. She had not children. Have to wonder what's to become of the place.

my sentiments exactly, and thought that scene was over ages okay. But apparently Elaine's was quintessentially New York. Thanks for posting
