Central Park Restaurant Sued for Sexual, Racial Harassment

A former maitre d' at a restaurant in New York City's Central Park claims in a lawsuit filed on Thursday that she was subjected to constant sexual harassment and racial discrimination and demoted after she complained.
The suit, filed in U.S. district court in Manhattan by Akira Smalls, alleges the manager at the Loeb Boathouse made a series of boastful and graphic sexual comments to her, including asking her whether she had any sexually transmitted diseases, and the restaurant's chef got her drunk in a bid to have sex with her.
