FEINSTEIN’S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed "Best of New York" by New York Magazine and "an invaluable New York institution" by The New York Post, will continue its star-studded Fall 2009 season with the return engagement of one of the original “Dreamgirls” MARY WILSON in an exclusive two week engagement from Wednesday, September 23 to Saturday, October 3. Her new show will mix classic Supremes hits like “You Can’t Hurry Love,” “My World Is Empty Without You” and “Reflections,” with favorites from the Great American Songbook. All shows will take place at the Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).

MARY WILSON, a founding member of the iconic group The Supremes, is a legendary figure of the rock and roll era. As a Detroit teen, along with Diana Ross and Florence Ballard, she helped to create one of the most successful female singing groups in recording history. Since then, Wilson has gone on to be a part of dozens of hit records, has written a best-selling autobiography, performed on stage and screen, lectured and toured the world.

As an original Supreme, Wilson is a much sought-after interview regarding the award-winning film Dreamgirls, currently on DVD. After covering the red carpet premiere for “Extra,” she endeared herself to a whole new generation of Hollywood stars and fans alike, including Golden Globe winners Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Hudson, as well as Jamie Foxx and Snoop Dogg. In addition to her tireless performing and trips to the studio to record her new album, she is lobbying state governments to pass a bill prohibiting bogus musical groups from cashing in on the names of such famous acts as The Supremes, The Platters and The Four Tops.

Fine Dining Delightful Distractions

Renowned New York Institution SCORES announces its re-opening and restoration, after closing for a short time. The legendary gentlemen’s club, made famous by notorious radio host Howard Stern, is once again playing host to a star-studded clientele that frequented the establishment in the 90’s.

Located at 536 West 28th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues, the vast Chelsea space that once housed Scores West, has been extravagantly renovated to feature a restaurant modeled after the internationally acclaimed Roberts Steakhouse. Like its sister establishment, Roberts Restaurant will serve top-rated cuisine with a trendy twist to keep pace with New York’s gastronomic scene.

The new space offers 10,000 square feet of adult entertainment and accommodations for over five hundred guests. The visual focal-point of the club is a one of a kind proscenium stage framed by flat screen televisions. The refurbished SCORES also features Vegas-worthy light shows, multiple satellite stages and an LED paved runway, to create a high-tech, multi-media ambiance.

In addition to the nightly lineup of entertainers, each of whom are headliners in their own rights, expect to see edgier burlesque type acts and cutting edge performance art aimed at ushering the upscale gentlemen’s club into the next level of modern era of adult entertainment.

Executive Chef Will Savarese will be lending his classical culinary skills to the kitchen of Roberts. Will’s accomplished resume boasts celebrated names like Le Cirque and Aureole as well as a lengthy stint at Le Cote Basque and La Cremaillere, where he was the Executive Chef and helped garner a 3 star rating from the New York Times.

One sample of his steak to die for, the 29 day, dry-aged Rib-eye, charred, rare on the bone & sliced, could make you an addict. The best steak in town? In my book, without question. Also, you may have to hock the family jewels to pay the tab, but hey fine dining never comes cheap. The magical fries are also worth a visit on their own. Amazingly, appetizers like tuna tartar with quail egg and hamachi, Asian-style with preserved ginger, sliced peppers and wasabi are delicious as  as well. Service is way up there and the girls are young, fresh and food for the eyes.

Chef Will may look like a kid, but he’s a total pro. Even desserts are terrific, whether they be a sexy rice pudding or a stylishly deconstructed banana split.

“Our mission is to bring back all the elements that made SCORES famous: the glamour, the celebrity and that sense of the unexpected,” says Mark Yackow. Eventually, we plan to expand across the country, but for now, we’re focused on our hometown.

SCORES  features eighteen individually-themed private rooms, many with their own flat screens, sound systems and temperature controls, ranging from the whimsical Celebrity Rooms to the ultra spacious Presidential Suites, secluded on their own mezzanine for the end all in privacy and luxury.

The wine list is amazingly expensive, but this IS a club after all and you can stick to the excellent cocktails, or go for broke and order a bottle of the Mouton for . . . I remember it topped a thousand. There are special promos for groups that can keep the prices in line or for a treat, keep your eyes on the entertainment and enjoy. Remember: “Tomorrow may never come, For All We Know.”
