I love the Cafe des Artistes. I discovered it a couple of years ago, and it is one of the few places in New York that does not feel like that cookie cutter nouveau riche kind of place. The food is amazing, the chef was on Top Chef I always take out of towners here because it is the kind of place you cannot find anywhere else."
I did not get as many food pictures -I was caught up in the moment which is good for me:)
I know my sister had Steak tartar which freaked me out but I tasted it and it was good

the only picture that was not too embarressing for someone was taken by
Our funny gpersonable waiter
After my family sang happy birthday to me
This man, the proprietor George Lang, happened to be there and came up and said "The Met called and wants to speak w/you" (We have some very accomplished singers in the family)he was so gracious and spent a few moments speaking to us and wishing me a happy birthday- What a treat!

My Brother treated us to tickets to this wonderful Musical I just loved it!! Thanks John!!
One of the Stars my sister got his and other cast members Autographs and they gave
that program and a Shirt form the show to me as a gift thanks Jodi
