QVC Jewelry Diva Joan Rivers Dishes On Her Favorite New York Hot Spots

June 16, 2010

If you’re looking to find out what QVC vendor Joan Riviers’ favorite haunts are in the Big Apple, check out this “My New York” feature from the New York Post Sunday.

Rivers, the subject of the frank documentary “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work,” is a fan of the Viand Coffee Shop on Madison Avenue near 61st Street. We used to grab coffee there when we had the money to get our hair done at the OC 61 salon around the corner. Rivers says the folks at Viand know her, and she gets dark turkey meat for her dog there.

FYI, QVC vendor Judith Ripka has a retail store right there, on the corner of 61st and Madison.

In terms of fancier eateries, Rivers is a fan of the media mecca Michael’s on 55th Street, where entertainment types go to be seen. We’ve been to press conferences there. The scene is better than the food.

Rivers also lauds Joe Allen, the Theater District restaurant. She says “real theater people” chow down there.

The comedian’s other New York favorites include Times Square at night, Central Park and Brighton Beach in Brooklyn.

Well, she actually launched her line in November on HSN.

So what was going on at the W?
