Nick Tattinger runs a restaurant in New York City assisted by Sheila Bradey, the chef; Sid Wilbur, the maitre d'; Lou Chatham the head waiter; Marco Bellini the bartender; and Billie Low, the piano player. His ex-wife Hillary is having an affair with Norman Asher resulting in considerable conversation and Nick's two teenage daughters, Nina and Winnifred, require attention. When the show returned in April 1989, Hillary had become partners with Nick. Written by
Stephen Collins better known from Seventh Heaven and Blythe Danner better known as Gwyneth's mother, played a couple who divorced in New York City. Their family restaurant, Tattingers, is supposed to be one of the classier restaurants for the in-crowd of New Yorkers like Wall Street millionaires, publishers, Broadway stars, movie and television stars. The show was memorable because it was also filmed in New York CIty and was created by the same gang who created St. Elsewhere but you get disappointed because Tattingers has a tough act to follow with the creators of St. Elsewhere who created probably the best drama on television ever. Tattingers needed a lot of work with the writing to make it appeal to broader audience of Americans. Most Americans like myself don't eat at 5 star restaurants but might work in one some day.
