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 dwelling, 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 together with his actress spouse, Brooke Adams. On 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. We have now a Goldendoodle named Scoop, and earlier than 9 within the morning, we will let him off the leash. We go to totally different ponds and down into the rambles. Afterward, for breakfast, I really like the smoked salmon from Zabar’s, the sable from Barney Greengrass and the bagels from H&H. A beauty of the Higher West Facet is that every little thing is at your fingertips.
We reside throughout the park from the Metropolitan Museum of Artwork. That’s all the time a go-to for museum hopping. We had been there not too long ago, having lunch. The Eating Room, on the fourth ground, has unbelievable scallops. For dinner, we favor somewhat Italian place referred to as Celeste, which it’s important to find out about to search 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 referred to as Lokale, and we will convey Scoop inside. He’ll sit at our toes within the bar space and [staffers] convey him water.
Brooke and I are theater rats. Final evening we noticed “The Ferryman,” which was unbelievable. Earlier than that, we noticed “The Waverly Gallery” with Elaine Might. It’s higher to observe the play than to be in it, particularly when folks I like 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 understand there.
Sometimes, we enterprise to the Village. A very good good friend 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 except the Packers are taking part in.
Once I’m dwelling, I prefer to tinker and sort things round the home. There’s a spot, up the road from Zabar’s, referred to as Primary Plus. They’ve issues for the kitchen and tub and can sharpen your knives. It’s one-stop buying, which I really like. I final purchased some LED gentle bulbs there. They’ve every little thing you want. Then you definitely go there and purchase issues that you simply didn’t assume you wanted.
