elainesWhat do Alec Baldwin, Norman Mailer, Candace Bushnell, and Woody Allen have in common? All were regulars at Elaine’s, a world-famous New York restaurant that offered encouragement and camaraderie to writers, politicians, artists, socialites, and everyone in between. In Elaine’s: The Rise of One of New York’s Most Legendary Restaurants from Those Who Were There, author Amy Phillips Penn chronicles the history of the late Elaine Kaufman’s iconic venue, which closed in 2011. This collection of poignant essays offers tribute to the restaurant’s legendary owner as well as an intimate portrait of New York society from the 1960s to the present.

Renowned society columnist and native New Yorker Amy Phillips Penn resides in Indio, California. Penn began her career as an assistant to society columnist Eugenia Sheppard at the New York Post; her column, “Around the Town,” was syndicated in the Palm Beach Daily News. Penn’s insider perspective offers a unique view into the world of Elaine’s.

Elaine’s can be found at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
