The Cafe of the Hotel Edison is the kind of place New Yorkers come after long tribulations out of town—we close our eyes, listening to the high-ceilinged echoes of people talking and plates clattering, and we know we're home, that there's a great city waiting outside the door, not some godless parking lot. Featured in the Neil Simon play 45 Seconds Over Broadway, with ornate pale pink walls and pale blue ceiling, itís an affordable theatergoerís favorite, complete with the Theatre Special Sandwich (cured ham, Swiss, slaw, Russian). The Basque Burger has tomato sauce, peppers, onions, and 'shrooms. Broiled halibut and salmon are on the menu along with fried scallops, home-made gefilte fish, and Nova on a bagel. How about a croissant and fries? Blintzes for dessert?
