Helmsley Hotel, Helping You Remember the Despised Public Figures of Other Eras

Mindy’s, the restaurant at the New York Helmsley Hotel, is getting a new name, the better to advertise its connection to Leona Helmsley:

Before a just-completed face-lift at the restaurant – Mrs. Helmsley has been dead for nearly three years – it was Mindy’s.

“Not many people know the name Mindy was the middle name of Leona,” said said Zack Zahran, the general manager of the hotel, “so we chose to make it Leona’s.”

“Choosing the name of a restaurant,” he said, “you have to make it easy.”

Ever considerate of the rabble.
