35. Notorious | Meet Me at Mortimer’s: Glenn Bernbaum

This week, we are going back to the East Coast, New York City in fact – to the toniest hot spot of all the swells in the Upper East Side – – a little place called Mortimer’s. What a scene – it was the scene for all the high society set for about a decade – from 1976 to 1998.

Exploring the life and times of Mortimer’s proprietor – Glenn Bernbaum, and the swells that circulated throughout the Upper East Side hot spot for its 22 year run.
