An Afternoon with Mrs. Maisel

The marvelous thing about living in New York are all the quirky fun things to do that turn up when you least expect them. The Carnegie Deli Pop-Up is one of them. Carnegie Deli opened on 854 7th Avenue in midtown Manhattan in 1937 just across from its namesake, Carnegie Hall. It expanded in 1976 and sadly closed its doors in 2016. It is still run in a smaller capacity seasonally and in a Las Vegas casino but the iconic restaurant in its original form is no more.

That is until Amazon Prime with their highly successful show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel collaborated with Carnegie Deli to create a one week only pop up restaurant in New York where the show is set in the 1950's. Reservations were filled immediately but if you wanted to you could stand on line and see if you can get in. So I trooped it into the city for a little adventure with my husband unaware of the experience I was going to have.

After searching and finding parking we heading to the pop up and I asked a gentlemen who worked there if I could just take photos inside which is what their social media said you could do if you couldn't get inside. I told him I was a vintage blogger and he noticed I was all dolled up in 1950's wonder and led me to the door to head in. Once inside I enjoyed an impromptu photo shoot inside and outside a fabulous photo booth, received free lunch thanks to Mrs. Maisel herself, two posters (one is autographed by the gang from Carnegie Deli), and met some incredible staff who worked the pop up.

I have been to a few pop ups here in New York and this was by far the best experience I had. I truly felt like a spoiled 1950's New York queen like Midge herself minus the uptown apartment. Tasty grub, good company, and chance to drench myself into the past felt like a retro 1950's dream. Tab Hunter included (my husband is definitely Tab material).

What a hoot I had and such a creative way to promote such a special show. I met one of the producers outside of the deli and we talked a bit about the pop up and sadly they cannot extend the time frame but he did mention that they might open it for more special occasions. Here's hoping they will. Have you had the chance to watch Season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel? If so, what did you think?
