New York Observer staff writer Vinnie Mancuso decided it might be fun to visit some of the iconic Manhattan locations featured in Louis CK’s sitcom. However, as his slide show documents, the halo of the F/X series was – on this night at least – hard to pin down.
A man in line at the Comedy Cellar had never heard of the show. A waiter at Banjara, one of two restaurants featured in the “bang-bang” back-to-back meals Louie episode, went out of his way to deny being a witness to any location shoot. Finally, at the very end, Mancuso found a show fan at the Ukrainian diner Veselka:
My waitress was a pretty blonde with the interesting name of Karlyn. She was from New Jersey. She would probably be out of my league on a night that I only ate one dinner. But I pressed my luck, for the sake of this tour.
