Champagne and Books...two of my favorite things, together at last.  The Plaza just got a whole lot better, as now, should you ever be interested interested in mixing these two in public, (and not in your own private sancuary), you can.  Assouline opened it's first North American Boutique last night on the mezzanine of the newly remodeled plaza.  And, the Oak Bar downstairs will happily bring you a glass of champagne for you to enjoy while you browse through hundreds of beautiful art, fashion, and photography works.
