    One of the most famous restaurant people in New York City, especially for writers.

    I wish I could find it online, but George Plimpton wrote a great story for New York Magazine when he took a guy who won a contest to Elaine's.

    I know some SJers have some fond memories of Elaine's, especially when W.C. Heinz died.

    Can't conceive of the place enduring without her.

    A character of characters.

    The food was not great, but then, I don't remember eating much the few times I was there.

    I'm not telling you anything, when I note the food wasn't the point. One thing, for sure . . .
    if you didn't tip well, you were marked lousy.
