Ms. Gael Greene, a critic that has had a tremendous impact on the New York dining scene over the last 45 years, is celebrating her 80th birthday this week. Here's a fun picture of Gael dancing with Craig Claiborne in 1968, right before she became the food critic for New York. Last night she tweeted: "Thirteen in out-of-town family here for my big birthday @RedFArm last night. Devouring dim sum,shrimp-stuffed chicken, champagne fr/Eddie." Ms. Gael will also be celebrating her birthday tonight at Stella 34 Trattoria with friends and supporters of her CityMeals on Wheels charity.
