  • Episode 1: Jezebel: Alberta Wright's Hell's Kitchen Clubhouse
    Sep 30 2022

    Ms. Alberta Wright did it all on her own - no business plan, no backers, no marketing - she launched what came to be known the best "low country" restaurant in all of New York City. She opened in the mid-1980s, when Hell's Kitchen was closer to Hell than Heaven. Still, a parade of celebrities frequented the place - Arthur Ashe, Vanessa Williams, Magic Johnson - and others who were lucky enough to find it. 

    Guests: Brad Johnson, Pauletta Washington, Bernard King, Raymond Lewis, Reggie Van Lee, Roberta Flack, CÉCILIA Rhode, and Vanessa Williams

    Nov 10 2022

With the launch of the West Hollywood sensation, Spago in 1982, he transformed the pedestrian pizza into gourmet fare all the while creating an ambience that became a go-to destination for movie stars, such as Orson Wells, Jack Lemmon, and Jaqueline Bisset.

    Guests: Wolfgang Puck, Ruth Reichl, Colman Andrews, François Kwaku-Dongo, Sherry Yard
