NY, NY USA
How would you feel about a daily lunch with Dorothy Parker? If you were a member of The Round Table Wits, that would have been a reality.
Literary notables and other artists of the 1920s famously met at the Algonquin Hotel for regular luncheons. They called themselves “The Vicious Circle” and influenced media internationally, helping each other rise to fame.
You might not be able to sit down to chat with those literary giants, but you can sit down to a meal at The Round Table restaurant in the Algonquin Hotel.
The 174-room hotel opened in 1902 and was designated as a city landmark in 2007.
Next time you go to NYC make sure you add this to your itinerary. It would make the perfect luncheon rendezvous point to break up your day at Book Con.
Have you been to New York? Would you visit Algonquin Hotel if you find yourself in the the Big Apple?
