Kibbitz & Nosh: When We All Met at Dubrow's Cafeteria

On a winter's day in the mid-1970s the photographer Marcia Bricker Halperin sought warm refuge and, camera in hand, passed through the revolving doors of Dubrow's Cafeteria in Brooklyn. There, between the magical mirrored walls and steaming coffee urns, she found herself as if on a theater set, looking out at a tableau of memorable faces. Enchanted, Halperin returned to Dubrow's again and again. Kibbitz and Nosh is a collection of photographs that transport the viewer to an essential but forgotten meeting spot, Dubrow’s Cafeteria in 1970s New York City.
