Jack Dempsey's Broadway Restaurant
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Located next door to Jack Amiel's "Turf Restaurant" on Times Square, Amiel became famous as the owner of the "underdog" horse Count Turf who won the 1951 Kentucky Derby. A few years after his Derby win, Jack Amiel became a co-owner of Jack Dempsey's Restaurant, which closed in 1974.
Jack Dempsey's Broadway Restaurant appears in the movie The Godfather (1972). Michael Corleone stands in front of Jack Dempsey's while waiting to be picked up by Virgil Sollozzo and Capt. McCluskey for their infamous dinner meeting.
