I had the pleasure of dining with this LIVING LEGEND at one of New York's Greatest Seafood Restaurants, DOCK'S OYSTER BAR, located on the corner of 40th Street and Third Avenue) (212-986-8080).
Our group of six dined on mounds of mussels, dozens of oysters, fresh lobster, delicious Dover sole and succulent shrimp, while consuming a variety of Cocktails featuring, you guessed it, "ANGEL'S ENVY" Bourbon Whiskey.
