The circles of New York, of which there are numerous — one of those circles was Elaine’s, and it brought together people who had next to nothing in common except that they came to Elaine’s.”—Author Gay Talese, who just last year said goodbye to Gino, on the last night of legendary restaurant Elaine's.
