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 by which he feels at dwelling, for the reason that 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 an excellent weekend, the Inexperienced Bay, WI, native tells MICHAEL KAPLAN, “we keep on the Higher West Facet.” Listed below are his favourite spots, each uptown and down.
When the climate is favorable, we spend lots of weekend time in Central Park. Now we have a Goldendoodle named Scoop, and earlier than 9 within the morning, we are able to let him off the leash. We go to totally 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 all the things 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 just lately, having lunch. The Eating Room, on the fourth ground, has incredible scallops. For dinner, we favor somewhat Italian place known as Celeste, which it’s a must to find out about to seek out — Stanley Tucci launched me to the place — they usually 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 are able to deliver Scoop inside. He’ll sit at our toes within the bar space and [staffers] deliver him water.
Brooke and I are theater rats. Final night time we noticed “The Ferryman,” which was incredible. 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 there.
Often, we enterprise to the Village. An excellent pal 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 enjoying, we go to MetLife Stadium. However I don’t go there except the Packers are enjoying.
Once I’m dwelling, I prefer to tinker and make things better round the home. There’s a spot, up the road from Zabar’s, known as Primary Plus. They’ve issues for the kitchen and tub and can sharpen your knives. It’s one-stop buying, which I like. I final purchased some LED gentle bulbs there. They’ve all the things you want. Then you definitely go there and purchase issues that you simply didn’t suppose you wanted.
