In “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” which simply launched its second season on Amazon, Tony Shalhoub performs a extremely strung Higher West Sider. It’s a job wherein he feels at residence, because the 65-year-old — who performed the title character on “Monk” and was up for a Tony for Broadway’s “The Band’s Go to” — has lengthy lived there along with his actress spouse, Brooke Adams. On a superb weekend, the Inexperienced Bay, WI, native tells MICHAEL KAPLAN, “we keep on the Higher West Facet.” Listed here are his favourite spots, each uptown and down.
When the climate is favorable, we spend numerous weekend time in Central Park. Now we have a Goldendoodle named Scoop, and earlier than 9 within the morning, we will let him off the leash. We go to completely different ponds and down into the rambles. Afterward, for breakfast, I like the smoked salmon from Zabar’s, the sable from Barney Greengrass and the bagels from H&H. A wonderful thing about the Higher West Facet is that the whole lot is at your fingertips.
We stay throughout the park from the Metropolitan Museum of Artwork. That’s all the time a go-to for museum hopping. We had been there lately, having lunch. The Eating Room, on the fourth flooring, has unbelievable scallops. For dinner, we favor somewhat Italian place known as Celeste, which it’s important to learn about to seek out — Stanley Tucci launched me to the place — and so they don’t take reservations. The appetizer of fried artichokes lined with fried parsley is a revelation. Then there’s the Turkish place, across the nook from us. It’s known as Lokale, and we will deliver Scoop inside. He’ll sit at our ft within the bar space and [staffers] deliver him water.
Brooke and I are theater rats. Final night time we noticed “The Ferryman,” which was unbelievable. Earlier than that, we noticed “The Waverly Gallery” with Elaine Might. It’s higher to look at the play than to be in it, particularly when individuals I love or have labored with are performing. Within the Theater District, after the present, we go to Joe Allen or Bar Centrale or Un Deux Trois, which is an actual theater hangout. You see everybody you recognize there.
Sometimes, we enterprise to the Village. A very good buddy of ours, Michael Wolff, is a pianist who performs at Knickerbocker Bar & Grill, the place they’ve nice french fries. We head down there rather a lot to see him. On Sundays, if the Inexperienced Bay Packers are taking part in, we go to MetLife Stadium. However I don’t go there until the Packers are taking part in.
After I’m residence, I wish to tinker and sort things round the home. There’s a spot, up the road from Zabar’s, known as Primary Plus. They’ve issues for the kitchen and bathtub and can sharpen your knives. It’s one-stop buying, which I like. I final purchased some LED gentle bulbs there. They’ve the whole lot you want. Then you definitely go there and purchase issues that you simply didn’t suppose you wanted.
