oscars-052-large.jpgJohn Curtas swings through former Mayor Oscar Goodman’s eponymous joint at the Plaza: “Fans who ‘love Oscar’ because he’s a loveable buffoon — who’s as easy to like as a well-stocked happy hour — are now being asked to spend money on food with his brand on it, and it’s going to be a tougher sell. As tough as the steak we had there, in fact. So tough that we’re betting you will agree that, as a restaurateur, Oscar Goodman makes a great politician.” But the ending pretty much says it all: “Our dinner for two with a single glass of wine and two desserts came to $153. Ron’s in Arizona Charlie’s was twice as satisfying at half the price.” [ELV]
