Chutzpah, Part 2
"In New York City, one's net worth of social currency is based not so much on who you know, but how you can get seated in the most important restaurants." - Myra Smolev
In this tale of unmitigated nerve, Myra tells of how she got a table at the River Cafe for friends arriving from Milan who had heard that this was the place to eat. However, at the time, typical of popular restaurants, it was IMPOSSIBLE to get a reservation.
But Myra, a New York City born aggressive and successful Jewish woman, succeeds with a little drama, creative thinking and classic Chutzpah :)
