Every plate comes with a story, and the one behind Harry’s Cafe & Steak is as full of ups and downs as the equity markets. Founded in 1972 in the basement of India House by the Greek immigrant Harry Poulakakos and his wife, Adrienne, the restaurant was a Wall Street institution (earning nods in Tom Wolfe’s “Bonfire of the Vanities” and Brett Easton Ellis’s “American Psycho”). In 2003, following the death of Adrienne, Harry closed his namesake spot. It was reborn, however, in 2006, when his son Peter spruced up the space and reopened the doors. Peter now has more than 22 restaurants, and, according to the restaurant’s website, Harry himself can be found here “greeting customers six days a week.” (One Hanover Square. 212-785-9200.)
