*4a. Chanel No. 5
Chanel No.5 was my mother’s favorite, so I can’t help but carry on the tradition.
*Flashback! My mom, Holly, would sprinkle Chanel No.5 on our sheets. I guess in lieu of fabric softener?? She stated it was a tip she learned when she attended the Ray-Vogue Design school. Who remembers when it was located on the corner of Michigan Ave & Chicago.
Proof positive that the
apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree.
5. The “Gabby” firm mattress.
Well I guess now you know I’m not a vegetarian.
Best Hamburger I ever had in my life? Well the “Acorn on Oak” of course. A lb of the best ground beef seasoned with what I’m sure is a family secret, topped with thin slices of raw onion that rivals rivals Pauly’s thin sliced garlic in the movie “Goodfellas.” Pickles, onions, cheeses & fresh cut fries. The vibe of the AOO was the epitome of elegance. White linen topped tables, plush seating, linen napkins, tuxed waiters & a baby grand by the front draped window. As a matter of fact, I don’t really recall any windows?? It was a place frequented by the “in-crowd” or folks from the neighborhood, attorneys, occassional tourists just stumbling by, models, a hushed business meeting, a secret affair…
7a. David Burkes Primehouse
Prime beef, dry-aged for 40 days on a fresh bake potato bun.
Tip: Don’t forget the cheese & bacon!
Whats that noise?? Oh that? Just arteries hardening.
