And speaking of San Chez, the staff have been incredible and I just have to post this photo of Cindy, the General Manager who is beloved by the whole San Chez team. I hadn't even realized she was in the restaurant celebrating her birthday the other night when suddenly, in the midst of the din of the dining and the buzz of imbibing, a deep rich voice silenced a record breaking crowd. Down the broad center staircase in two lines marched the entire staff, their voices joined gloriously in "Happy Birthday!" It was mesmerizing and instantly reminded me of that scene in Auntie Mame, when the staff pours down that magnificent 5th avenue penthouse staircase in song.
Happy (belated) birthday Cindy!
