Joy Behar Has Dinner With New York Times

As a regular at this clubby restaurant on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center, she was greeted effusively by the senior dining-room manager, Tim Brown, who guided her, along with a "View" publicist and a reporter, to a window table offering dazzling views of Central Park. Ms. Behar had just finished taping "The Joy Behar Show" (shown weeknights on the HLN cable news channel) after shooting a "View" episode in the morning.
