Savage Lounge General Info
A new midtown restaurant and speakeasy is making a nod to one of the most famous scenes in movie history.
Guests who arrive at the Savage Lounge at 8 W. 58th St. are ushered down a staircase and snaked through Pomona restaurant's kitchen, where cooks wave "hello" between chops, and into the moody cocktail lounge without having set foot in the dining room.
The experience mirrors the restaurant tracking shot in Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas," where the camera follows Henry and Karen for three minutes as they make their way through the Copacabana. They pass cooking staff in the kitchen, wind their way down shadowy hallways and finally arrive in the nightclub — all in one take.
