Media-Whore D'Oeuvres







Dinner in the West Gallery at the Frick Collection's annual Autumn dinner.


"This past Monday night at the Frick Collection, they hosted their annual Autumn dinner in the galleries. This dinner is like everything else at the Frick – a cut above – in terms of atmosphere, presentation and the pleasure of dining amidst the Turners, El Grecos, Vermeers, Goyas, Manets, David. I mean really, where else in the United States of America can you do this? In what used to be a man’s home – and still protects some of that feel. I’ve written this many times before so I’ll be quick, but the Frick always deserves a special word. It is a haven, a solace, and a refuge from the city’s horns and bells and honks and cellphone carriers. We know a lot about Mr. Frick, its founder, and his dealers and his daughter. It’s a story to tell with many sides and shades. But the main event was this house, the museum, this collection. Whatever the karma that went into its inception, its construction, its expansion and its reputation, the Fricks created a little bit of heavenliness on this mad planet of ours." (NYSD)
