Tough Guy Drinks Sissy Wine

Yes, Harvey Keitel of Pulp Fiction fame eats raw oysters and drinks rose wine.  I witnessed it myself at Odeon in Tribeca. (

Barbara and I were there on Tuesday night, after a few hours of wandering the neighborhood and sitting by the Hudson river in very cool lounge chairs.  Barbara said that to make her day complete we needed a celebrity sighting.  As soon as we sat down at a sidewalk table Harvey Keitel sits down at the next table with his son.  So I guess her day was complete :)

We shared: a Croque Monsieur with Black Forest ham, prosciutto di Parma, Gruyère cheese, Mornay sauce & french fries, and a Tuna Burger with wasabi mayonnaise & mixed greens.  A few glasses of wine for me (and no sissy stuff either-who drinks pink wine anyway?) I had cabernet and Barb had a Stella.  We couldn't resist dessert so we shared:  a Warm Apple-Walnut Tart with salted caramel sauce & vanilla ice cream. Very yummy.  We cleaned each and every one of our plates.

It was a fun afternoon in NYC!

  1. It was a perfect day, not because of the celebrity sighting, but because of your company. We'll have to do it again in the fall when the weather cools off.
