(Madonna and Sean Penn on Date Mode at Elaine’s)
Our hearts are crushed by the loss of one of New York’s institutions, the restaurant we all call Elaine’s. The woman behind Elaine’s was Elaine Kaufman, the soul behind the famous little secret in the upper east side. Back in the days, on any given night, you’d see Norman Mailer and Walter Cronkite on one side of the room or Diana Ross and Diane Keaton in the other corner. Elaine was the lady in charge. Everyone knew her and loved her. She passed away this last December 2010, but it was announced in May 2011 that the restaurant is shutting it’s doors. There’s no ship without a captain, and Elaine was the only captain for this precious spot.
Take a peek at Life Magazine’s archives of photos through the years.
RIP Elaine’s —the building and the woman!
New York lost a big fish in the art scene when Jeffrey Deitch (Deitch Projects) moved to the west coast in order to be the new Director of MOCA, Los Angeles. His first project was the immense retrospective of Dennis Hopper’s career entitled Dennis Hopper Double Standard. Earlier in the summer, André Balazs and Jeffrey Deitch put heads together to co-host a private “friends & family” dinner to celebrate Jeffrey’s first presentation in Los Angeles. The guests? Art meets Hollywood.
