This week’s Quiz:
On one recent episode of an NYC-based TV dramedy, the characters debate heading up to Westchester to dine at the famous Ã¢â‚¬Å“Blue Hill at Stone Barns,Ã¢â‚¬? only to conclude itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“too far.Ã¢â‚¬? Which show featured this storyline?
A. Lipstick Jungle
B. Cashmere Mafia
C. Dirty, Sexy, Money
D. 30 Rock
The answer is at the end of the clip and after the break.
OK, I know that “Cashmere Mafia” is a pale, pale immitation of “Sex & the City,” but it does succeed in one area that its HBO predecessor didn’t: Giving shout-outs to Westchester.
According to our sister blog, Small Bites, there was a scene in this week’s episode in which some characters debate driving up to Pocantico Hill’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns for a romantic evening, later reconsider because it’s “too far,” and finally end up ordering takeout from the restaurant. What’s more, Barns GM Philippe Gouze is mentioned by name.
Sure, it’s not quite the same as Law & Order coming up to actually film here, but it’s a start.
