Toots

Filmmaker Kristi Jacobson profiles her grandfather, Bernard "Toots" Shor, arguably New York City's premier restaurateur/saloonkeeper in the 1940s and 50s. Arriving in New York from South Philadelphia at the age of 18, Toots began as a speakeasy bouncer, but had his own place by 1940. Toots named his establishment after himself, and his patrons included writers, actors, athletes, politicians and mobsters. Frank Gifford, Joe Garagiola, Gay Talese and others share memories of the man and his bar.
