Sardi's: Vincent and Eugenia Sardi founded Sardi's Restaurant in May 1921 on West 44th Street in the heart of the theatrical district. The Broadway theatre would never have been the same without Sardi's: Plays have been written and entirely financed at Sardi's and hit shows have celebrated their opening at Sardi's. To hang your drawing on the wall at Sardi's is to make your mark on the history of the American Stage.
