When I moved to New York, 150 Wooster was the glowing hot sun of the celebrity restaurant scene. People were almost freaked out by how instantly hot it was. [We mostly went to Odeon, Brian McNally's other restaurant, but still.]
Then it became Casa La Femme, a eurotrashy tapas place that was a friend's first PR client, so we had to go there a lot at first, to help him out. Casa La Femme closed right before the kid was born, in 2004. 2004-2007 was a little fuzzy.
Now 150 Wooster is back. As the new Maclaren showroom and stroller repair center. Even though our Volo is missing one of the little caps on the end of the handle, I don't know if I can wrap my head around the concept right now. On the other hand, with all my Daddy Types juice, I bet I could finally get a reservation. Oh, wait, reservations aren't required.
Better to send my father in-law, who snapped photos of the incredible carved wood Maclaren buggy that used to be ensconced in no-photos-allowed splendor in the Maclaren USA HQ in Connecticut. A couple more photos after the jump.
