After a recent visit to this mega-club night (closest thing to the Roxy of yore?) near Columbus Circle, an intrepid reporter - new to the wonders of giant chain restaurants - described it to me as "the Olive Garden of gays!".
It remains unclear exactly what he meant by that...perhaps as a reference to the quantity/quality of Italian offerings to be tasted? ...the size and cleanliness of the space? ...the unlimited salad and breadsticks? I'm not sure how he meant it (he does love Olive Garden!)...but what I do know is - like Olive Garden - he specified that the hosts of Club 57 are incredibly warm and welcoming.
