4. Hawaii Kai Restaurant
While Scorsese sets the classic “You think I’m funny” monologue at the Bamboo Lounge, the interiors were actually shot at the Hawaii Kai Lounge on Broadway and 50th Street, across the street from the Winter Theater in Times Square. The Polynesian restaurant stood at that location for almost 40 years and was designed by Frederick Fox: a scenic designer on Broadway. It should be noted that Pesci – criminally underrated actor – won Best Supporting Actor for this role; it is obvious why as he controls everything about this scene with his immense presence.
