Time Out NY Yes, it"s true--all these fabulous people know each other, and they have no clue who you might be. Go to Elaine"s to be a fly on the literati"s wall, to stargaze at the happy-to-be-admired and to eat undistinguished saloon-style Italian fare. Antipasti like fried calamari are just what you"d expect. Pasta is plain but pleasantly prepared and a better bet than the meat dishes. Sirloin is served unseasoned, with a heap of greasy french fries and a hefty price tag ($35). The deluxe dessert tray affords you an opportunity to stop staring and shamelessly indulge in something excessively rich and decadent--qualities the patrons around you have in spades.
