Hi edsiejka - St. Adrian's is mentioned in PART 1 of this story on the Mercer. I don't know much about the place (St. Adrian's) - do you have any memories or information?

Hi NYCdreamin-

I have a large file of information on St. Adrian's including e-mails and conversations with former manager and wait staff. Contact me at
