RIP Elaine Kaufman

elaine-kaufman-150.jpgSad news: Elaine Kaufman, the New York legend that founded and ran the eclectic writer's haunt Elaine's, died today at the age of 81. Famed regulars past and present include William Styron, George Plimpton, Gay Talese, Norman Mailer, Elaine Stritch, Woody Allen, Jackie Onassis, and Tom Wolfe. Pete Wells wastes no time and hits up Diner's Journal to ask Just How Bad Was the Food at Elaine's? [-ENY-, NYT]
