Media-Whore D'Oeuvres



"So now that we've glimpsed the menu at the revived Monkey Bar, it's time to answer the far more important question confronting a Graydon Carter restaurant: where, praytell, do the A-listers sit? A special Eater operative who hit up Friends and Family last week sketched us the above overhead of the reworked back dining room; we appended their notes in red, and got the full lowdown.." (Eater)

"It’s not out yet, but Michael Gross’s exposé of the Met Museum, Rogues’ Gallery, has already raised the hackles of its powerful board, which includes Henry Kravis, Henry Kissinger, and Annette de la Renta, whose family history Gross writes about in some detail. At a trustees’ meeting, Met senior vice-president for external affairs Harold Holzer was forced to explain how the book, to be published May 5th, came together. According to the meeting minutes, he admitted that, although the Met refused to cooperate with Gross and 'declined to respond to his disobliging queries … some staff and alumni have answered questions.'"

"KEVIN Rudd, whose critique of neoliberal capitalism was a show stopper for the cognoscenti, looked at home on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, as he waved cheerily to the travelling media .. Rudd finished off his US visit among the financiers, and with chats to a couple of prestigious former politicians, one time secretary of state Henry Kissinger and former vice-president Al Gore, now the great climate change activist. Although the bad economic times are making the prospects for international progress on climate change much harder, as Rudd admits, the PM is greatly encouraged by America's new commitment to achieving something."
