The Celeb Stalker
I imagine this girl will be late, having spent too much time gabbing with her best friend, the seen-it-all fashionista, at the nail salon. Plan accordingly. After waffling under several chefs and losing some of its celeb-baiting luster, Graydon Carter's Monkey Bar is relevant once again, thanks to an infusion of talent curated by Ken Friedman (the Breslin, the John Dory, the Spotted Pig): Damon Wise is in the kitchen, Julie Reiner is behind the bar, and Belinda Chang is stewarding the wine. Carter is no doubt taking the change-over as an opportunity to recoup his eminent clientele, making this a perfect time to stop in with your star-stalker to see how the Vanity Fair honcho is doing.
