And no one, not even Elaine herself, is standing guard at the door.Elaine Kaufmans creation certainly came from humble beginnings. Forty years ago the now legendary restaurant on Eighty-eighth Street and Second Avenue was deemed too far uptown for anyone of importance to frequent.

It was there that Elaine served, catered to, and nursed young starving writers and artists of the day.As these customers grew and matured into Woody Allen and Norman Mailer, Andy Warhol and Jack Nicholson, Elaines grew with them.

By the time these artists were deemed legends, well, Elaines had already become legendary.A. E. Hotchner was there at the beginning, is still there today, and has a table reserved for tomorrow. There is no better person than Hotch to tell the story of Elaines. He was there for every bit of it.Theyre all inside: Jackie O., Truman Capote, Frank Sinatra, Liz Smith, Joan Rivers, Lauren Bacall, Judy and Liza. The stories are all here. The night Jackie came to dance. The night Sinatra snubbed The Godfather author, Mario Puzo. When Sinatras ex-wife, Mia Farrow, asked Michael Caine to introduce her to Woody Allen.

When George Steinbrenner was turned away at the door the night his Yankees beat the Mets in the Subway Series.Everyone Comes to Elaines is more than a story about New York City. Its more than a story of celebrities. This is the story of a family with a domineering mother who will stop at nothing to protect those dearest to her. This is an American saga.Elaines is a microcosm of the people and events of the last forty years, from the sixties, when Beatles and Stones held forth there, to the start of the twenty-first century, when painful wakes were held for the regulars who perished on September 11.

Just as Gertrude Stein presided over her salon in Paris in the twenties, Elaine now presides over hers.So pull up a seat. Youre invited. Everyone comes to Elaines. Enjoy!
