|Stories and Recipes from New York's Most Legendary Restaurant|

at Le Cirque, N.Y.C. on October 16, 2012
Monday night, I attended the launch party for A Table at Le Cirque: Stories and Recipes from New York's Most Legendary Restaurant aptly held at Le Cirque (New York). My good friend, Cynthia agreed to meet me there at 6:30, just thirty minutes after the event's start time. But just thirty minutes in, the room holding the event was already packed with wall-to-wall well-wishers and hobnobbers. I didn't dare attempt reaching for one of the quickly-disappearing hors d'œuvre (although I did get a taste of some delicious fried flounder) that were being passed about--I instead headed directly to the bar, where I waited in queue behind Carmen Dell'Orefice (later publications tell of Marc Murphy, Geoffrey Zakarian and Liz Smith also attending).
Ever since reading Sirio's story in the biography, Sirio: The Story of My Life and Le Cirque, I've become an immensely-admiring fan...
