Anyone who’s seen the terrific BBC biopic Burton & Taylor with Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West will appreciate this Mad Menera steak house. Liz ’n’ Dick certainly did – they got engaged here! A veritable who’s who of celebs have dined here, including such iconic names as – deep breath – Michael Caine, Jack Lemmon, Don Rickles, Rosemary Clooney, Richard Chamberlain, Sharon Stone, Art Linkletter, Patty Duke, Yvonne DeCarlo, Patrick Macnee, Rita Moreno, Arnold Palmer, Eartha Kitt, Minnesota Fats, Rodney Dangerfield and Liberace. Now that Bistro 990’s been bulldozed for a condo development, Barberian’s keeps the oldschool showbiz vibe alive. Monday to Friday noon to 2:30 pm, dinner 5 pm to midnight, Saturday and Sunday 4:30 pm to midnight. Reservations accepted. Licensed. Access: barrier-free.
