Here's an update on Ta-boo on the 70th anniversary ...
If Ta-boó’s walls could talk, what stories they could tell – 70 years’ worth, this week.
Stories about Joseph P. Kennedy and Gloria Swanson in the ladies’ room of the Worth Avenue bistro. Or John F. Kennedy sneaking out the back door – and away from the Secret Service.
Tales tinged with what author and lunchtime regular James Patterson recently described as “a delicious hint of rumor and scandal.”
“It has so much history to it,” says Nancy Sharigan, who’s owned the restaurant since 1990 with business partner Franklyn deMarco. “You run into people all over the country and they’ll say, ‘I went there with my grandmother’ or ‘I met my husband there.’ “
Says deMarco: “And they said it wouldn’t last.”
