Roger Thornhill can get his drink on again at The Plaza
The Plaza may reopen its gilded doors as early as March 1 after almost two years of renovations and a condo conversion, NewYorkology reports, but the Palm Court and its famed tea service will be back later that month, and the Oak Bar-Oak Room, where Cary Grant, playing Roger O. Thornhill, had drinks before getting kidnapped in "North by Northwest," opens later in the spring.
But it won't be the same place, with fewer hotel rooms and an abundance of high-priced condos, where, sniff, sniff, some of the residents will be lonely.
