Le Cirque Timeline; Toloache's Mexican Jewish Passover

MIDTOWN — Today is the 40th anniversary of Le Cirque. To mark the occasion, the team has put together a timeline of the restaurant's lifespan. It notes, among other things, the years when Sirio Maccioni invented pasta primavera, when Geoffrey Zakarian became a line cook, and when Andrew Carmellini became a sous chef. A more thorough, interactive timeline is in the works. [Facebook]
