I hate to disrupt the timeline, but we've switched views. Now we're looking north from the Times Tower. Astor on the left. The Wallick hotel is on the extreme right.

Here's the dining room, from an old postcard. Looks like every other restaurant of the era. They probably had to redo the card every few years to keep up with the changing name; the hotel went by Barett, Cadillac, Wallick, then Cadillac again. Went down in the early 40s.
