Gage & Tollner, Oyster and Chop House circa 1960, Photographic postcard, V1988.54.22; Brooklyn Historical Society.

For decades, the famed Brooklyn restaurant Gage & Tollner, one of the city’s oldest, was hidden inside a discount jewelry and clothing store, but now, the hotspot once frequented by icons like Truman Capote, Mae West, and Jimmy Durante is making a comeback. Built in 1875, the restaurant operated at 372 Fulton Street from 1892 through 2004. It was a place where New York city’s elite families and the celebrities of the day dined amidst elegant surroundings. This winter, Gage & Tollner will be re-opened to its full glory, but before that, Untapped New York Insiders will have the chance to go inside and see the restoration in progress. The tour will be led by award-winning writer, bartender, and restaurateur St. John Frizell, partner/beverage director for Gage & Tollner.
