The Writing Room Revamps Iconic Elaine's Space in NYC

The iconic New York City restaurant Elaine's closed back in 2011, and now a new restaurant has opened in the same location. Eater NY takes a look around The Writing Room, and finds the new restaurant paying homage to Upper East Side institution with walls covered in photos "showing scenes of bygone days at Elaine's." The Writing Room also pays tribute to the famous and creative crowd of regulars who frequented Elaine's by keeping their books in a library-inspired room called the Study. Other changes to the space include a brand new kitchen, serving a menu of "East Coast classics" like a lobster boil, New England clam chowder, rotisserie chicken, and pan roasted cod.
