Owner and literary agent Luke Janklow (nephew of Warner Le Roy, whose Tavern on the Green and Russian Tea Room are restaurant icons) and now ex-wife opened this whimsical restaurant that inspires nostalgia for long-closed ice-cream mecca Rumpelmeyers.

We'd like to say which one of these does not belong, but keep in mind that Luke Janklow was teething at the Russian Tea Room.The Sweetie Pig
