A Disappointed Series!, 9 June 2007
Author: ( from United States

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.
