I believe that you are talking about Café Rustico.

Went to both Tannens and Fantasma while in NYC. Have to say I had a better response from the folks in Tannens than the other one. When I went to Fantamsa I was looking around for 15 min then turned to the guy behind the counter and asked for some help he looked at me like I was nuts. So I left and went to Tannens and got what I needed quickly.

When I went to Fantasma, the gbtc was very helpful and entertaining.

I second reccomendations for Monday Night Magic. Fun night and as Al mentions some cracking restaurants nearby, too.

OK, that might be the place now. The place I went to was off Times Square in the 40's.

Any details on when they meet or such?

Are you testing me? My last two post tell you both where to go, and when to go, which is the answer to your last three posts. I hope that I have finally made myself clear.

Dozens of museums (Literally) in N.Y.C. do a search and find the ones that suit your likes.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

My apologies Al. I get confused easily.

Your post did answer my question. When I asked about time and place, you mentioned Jonathon's post which did in fact have a time and place... but (as easily as I get confused) he didn't mention what the time and place he was posting referred to, so I got lost.

Thanks for clearing it up.

I think my favorite museum was the Museum of Natural History. Especially the aquatic wing with its full-scale blue whale hanging off the ceiling! Everyone else in my family is queezy underneath that thing, but I like it.

Anyone can make a mistake, but I thought that you were just playing with my head.

I'm not that clever.

Just got back from New York and had the same experience. No one at Fantasma ever said a word to me (and there was no one else in the store). I thought it was really weird. The guys at Tannen's were friendly and helpful. The store doesn't seem as "magical" as it did in the 80's, but maybe I'm just older.
