The Silver Palate was an iconic and tiny little take-out shop that opened on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in 1979. It was the brainchild of two women: Julie Russo and Sheila Lukins. Two years earlier, Lukins, divorced from her husband and mother to two small children, had set up a catering operation in her apartment. She lived in New York’s famed “Dakota”, home to Lauren Bacall, Rex Reed and most famously and tragically, John Lennon who was assassinated outside its front door in 1980.
