CAFE CARLYLE

980 Madison Avenue, NY, New York 10075, USA
back to list

With Dixie-inspired jazz performances every Monday by Woody Allen on the clarinet, backed by the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band, and the legendary likes of Lea Salonga, Steve Tyrell, and Eartha Kitt gracing this 70-seat supper club on the regular, Café Carlyle needn’t require much introduction. Yet that’s only half the story of a New York staple that looks straight out of a black-and-white MGM classic. Perimeter blue banquettes curve along the edge of the space—like a spectacular circling of wagons around center stage—while music theme murals bedeck the walls by French artist Marcel Vertes, Oscar-winning art director of the 1952 Moulin Rouge. For a reasonable cover charge you can make a night of the Carlyle, where the food sings too: a classic menu with offerings like the Bobby Short Chicken Hash (named for their marquee singer of 36 years) with truffles, foie gras and potatoes, and a Gateau Au Chocolat with crème fraiche and raspberry coulis for dessert is almost as melodious as the performance.
