Recollections re: DDL Foodshow (or Food Show)?

I'm thinking of the flagship location of Columbus Ave. between W 81 and W 82 (NYC), back in the early 80s. I was surprised that the architectural tome 'New York 2000' makes no mention of DDL's usage of the space (now Calle Ocho restaurant, previously Main Street restaurant, and prior to that??). This place was a big deal when it first opened, but failed to gain suction on the Upper West Side even though aesthetically it blew away Zabar's (and was more expensive). Any recollections of the place would be appreciated.
