EDITOR’S LETTER

“If we commit ourselves to one person for life this is not, as many people think, a rejection of freedom; rather it demands the courage to move into all the risks of freedom, and the risk of love which is permanent; into that love which is

Drink and be married:

not a possession, but participation…”

Seydoux, and Hancock

—Madeleine l’engle THE GENERATION CURRENTLY coming into that phase of their lives when pictures of engagement rings pop up on their Facebook feeds is also a generation that grew up when it was more likely than not to have divorced parents. It would be easy then to regard the institution with a cynical eye—and many do—yet still they take the proverbial plunge. There’s always a bit of magic in the ceremony of slipping on a ring and swearing to a life together, of which every picture in this month’s Wedding Issue shows a glimpse. The memories of celebrating the union of two people in love can be treasured forever (even if you find your vacations planned around “destination weddings” for several years running) and we’ve compiled ones that assuredly fit the bill. From a last-minute elopement to a four-day blowout, from a winter wonderland in the mountains to a sun-dappled spectacle by the sea, the variety of how people choose to mark their nuptials reflects the individuality of the couples themselves. After the party there’s the after-party, and after that there’s… the honeymoon! We take a look at where a couple might want to consider jetting off to, either to relax like a pampered sloth or go on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. (And if it’s Turks and Caicos that tempts you, make sure to stop by Da Conch Shack for some of the best local seafood.) Then again, we all know that 18 QUEST

NEW YORK SO CIAL DIARY

FINE FASHION and the fashionable. This is the moment on the calendar in New York when the fashion industry shows its wares (wears?) for the coming Fall/Winter season. Fashion is change and change is fashion. “Fashionable” is purely conceptual. The word is less relevant today. “Hip” is more like it—or “with it,” or “wild, or “hot.” This started to happen with the liberation movements of the 1960s. Most women were still fashionable then, however. Jackie Kennedy was a dominating force when the change was moving into hip. A more dominant force who preceded “Mrs. O”—and was still setting the style in those days of change— was Babe Paley. Paley was an artist with her fashion. The finished work had an artist’s eye to it. Any woman who happened to catch a glimpse of her never forgot the experience, whether or not she was interested in fashion. Kennedy, on the other hand, brought movie star glamour to her fashionable self. Both women were a fashion designer’s ideal; they sold clothes in volume simply by wearing them. The greatest changes in fashion during my lifetime (as seen through the eyes of a mere observer) occurred in the 1960s. Previously, the greatest change had occurred in the early 20th century when ladies started to raise their hems and show their ankles. At the end of the 19th century, women were covered up at almost all times: it was a Victorian notion. Therefore, the display of an ankle was almost risqué—an “erotic’ glimpse for men as women were being “liberated.” The women of fashion I am referring to were the upper classes, which included the “educated” and the ladies of society as well as the very rich. All ideas of 20 QUEST

fashion stemmed their display. They had the money and the time, or at least some exposure to fashion. Most women across America sewed, thanks to Isaac Singer and his little machine. Condé Nast, the magazine publisher, made most of his money in those early days not from his magazines but from his garment-pattern business. (Now, an article may tell you where to buy a piece of clothing. But in those days, the editorial told you where to get the garment pattern to make it yourself.) The fashion world, as we know it, had its beginnings in the 19-teens. It was a result of technology, or what was considered to be technology at the time: the automobile, the telephone, the camera, and (most importantly) the motion-picture camera. By the “Roaring Twenties,” women were not only showing their ankles but also their knees. That was quite a climb. But by the Great Depression of the 1930s, American men and women were developing an eye for fashion through the movies. Constance Bennett was young, beautiful, and glamorous. For the first time, society women were copying an actress. With Kim Kardashian and her sisters, it has come full circle. The hoi polloi, living like movie stars, have become the bees knees and the ideal of young fashion. When it comes to fashion, the most revolutionary statement made in the past century was as simple as Coco Chanel’s trousers for women. It proved a statement for the ages. Last bells, ringing out the old and ringing in the new. The “double week” holiday of 2015 brought some rain, fog, and mist. But it was holiday party time in New York. It’s not everywhere but, in certain

Then there are the purely social events where people run into acquaintances, old friends, neighbors, and friends of friends. Catching up. The holiday party scene, pre-Christmas, was as busy as usual.

Meanwhile, over at the Fifth Avenue aerie of Georgette Mosbacher (who was the lady in red as Mrs. Claus), there was a clamoring crowd in a festive mood. After, the hostess made an appearance at Sette Mezzo, where she turned heads in her totally red, shiny, sparkly “Lady Santa” outfit including her dress, stockings, shoes, and a cap.

hosted their holiday cocktail. This is an annual she-bang with 350 guests, featuring the great Doubles dessert buffet as well as trays and trays of hors d’oeuvre being passed. There was everything to keep everyone happy—and happy they were. There were many, many familiar faces, with friends who were chatting away and running into old friends and new friends. All under the holiday lights, it was a big crowd yet a cozy affair. A very prominent woman attending, who is wellversed on the party scene, exclaimed to a friend: “This is the best party in New York!” What a swell party it

Of course, he comes from a generation that learned from its fathers and mothers how to tell a story or a joke. Common sense and decorum was and is the ticket to the tell. John has that.

many who have known each other for years—and whose children have known each other for years. Gemütlich on Park Avenue, in a “New York state of mind.” From the Jakobsons, I went on down the avenue to see Gay and Nan Talese, who have a townhouse just off of Park Avenue in the East 60s. They and their daughters, Pamela Talese and Catherine Talese, host this party every Christmas Eve. I’m guessing but the guest list might have been a couple of hundred. The party extends throughout the living rooms and the rest of the house. The sisters had decorated “just for the party,”

which in Talese lingo, means, “just for the people” (a.k.a. us). It is that kind of a party. You don’t just feel welcome, you feel at home. I first attended a number of years ago when Alice Mason asked Gay if she could bring me along. It intrigues me that the recollection I have of the house itself is different from the house I now go to. It seemed smaller in memory and, although it’s not a mansion, the house was built in 1913 (or so) and the rooms are ample. The Taleses have lived there for decades now. Their girls grew up there. They used the land behind the house to create a large two-story room,

which is basically a floored and covered backyard—the perfect entertainment venue. At this annual Christmas Eve party, it is set up with a bar and several large, round tables with chairs. That’s where the guests have dinner, or dessert, or drink. This is a very sophisticated New York crowd. By sophisticated I mean: worldly and literate with many who are literary, ambitious, and imaginative in a city that officially reveres it. There are many well-known writers who join the Talese family year after year. I see Michael Bloomberg there every year. He always looks very relaxed, as if he’s

I’ve been to this party a number of times and I have been in this business long enough to know many of the guests who are famous or celebrated—you could say I’m used to it, and I am. But I must admit that, when the moment comes on Christmas Eve to go to this party, I remain very impressed. I’m almost like a kid from the sticks who only 28 QUEST

knows the thrill of it all. A good part of that is the hospitality of this family. The author, the editor, the painter, the photographer—all out there in the world—and yet gemütlich. A very good, old friend of mine named Philip Carlson was there and he wrote me about it the next day: “I loved being there. It is truly remarkable, the degree of goodwill those walls give off. Everyone is so genuinely glad to be there.” That’s the essence, like a moment in a village. Wonderful town. I’d got there at about

7:30 p.m. and left a little after 9:30 p.m. It was a beautiful night outside: a good night to be grateful. Holiday time holds a lot of memories for many of us no matter where we are. In my life in New York, a memory that stands out were the holiday parties given by Judy Green at her great big apartment at 555 Park Avenue with its pine-paneled living room, the blood red library (with the big red, black, and green Mark Rothko hanging over the sofa), and the Andy Warhol silk-screen quartet (of

Judy) over the bar. Judy loved Christmas almost as much as she loved giving parties. A fire blazing in the fireplace, the mantle decked with Christmas beads and boughs of holly, the big tree in the corner, and tables laid out with a buffet of tea sandwiches by Vincent Minuto, the part-time chef to the rich and the famous (and the savvy). The party always began at 6:30 p.m. and, like a rocket, it took off immediately into the night. People would go on their way to somewhere else and get delayed because

D AV I D PAT R I C K C O L U M B I A there are always all kinds of people, and lots of talk. That said, there wasn’t a lot of talk around the buffet tables because of the tasty tea sandwiches—except for those who talk with their mouths full. These was nothing little sandwiches—itty-bitty squares on whole wheat or white with their crusts trimmed away— so small, and so light. But each one boasted the thinnest spread of chicken salad or egg salad or ham salad, or watercress or cucumbers. You couldn’t tell what you were getting until you popped one in your mouth. And you didn’t

give a damn anyway, because you never felt like you were eating too much. And all you wanted was to eat another. The most sophisticated had been known to stand by the table with a drink in one hand and the other hand operating like a kind of steam shovel: table-to-mouth, table-to-mouth. There were also Christmas cookies and brownies, but people ate them only to pretend to themselves they were through with the sandwiches. The other good thing about Judy’s parties was the mix: so diverse and so crowded that you were forced to talk to peo-

ple because you were already pressed up against them. And what did they talk about? It was interesting to watch Dominick Dunne. Everyone wanted to talk to him. You could imagine them telling him all kinds of secrets. He’d wend his way around the room, always a glass of Perrier in one hand since he didn’t drink. He operated deftly and quickly, pausing to say hello and then, before you knew it, someone was telling him something. In my notes, I found a list of the guests I remembered seeing at Judy’s Christmas

party on December 19, 2000. I’d written it down when I got home, just to test my memory. Of the more than 200 attending in the course of the evening, I remembered the following: Sidney Zion, Dominick Dunne, Patricia Duff, Karen Moline, Dennis Basso, Michael Cominotto, Tommy Corcoran, Sam Michaels, Ann Rapp, Chris and Grace Meigher, Mollie Wilmot, Sharon Sondes and Geoffrey Thomas, Ian and Ellen Graham, Dolores Smithies, Edgar Battista, Pierre Cossette, Pierre Scapula, Charlie Scheips, Tom Graff, Marina Pignatelli, Pau-

room was wood-paneled with a roaring fire in the fireplace, and it all worked very well for Robert’s creations. One year, that roaring fire got a little too hot and the evergreen boughs strategically placed over the mantle caught fire and the Fire Department had to come and put it out while guests waited in the building’s lobby. Once out, however, the party resumed. Everyone had a very good time and the party would last well into the midnight hour. A highly gregarious woman who loved humor and gossip and ribald stories, Judy was an author of three novels and one of the most well-read peo-

Judy loved that and, one year, she recorded a Christmas song for Ol’ Blue Eyes. I never heard Judy sing a note and I’d been told she couldn’t carry a tune, but nevertheless... Sinatra, on receiving and hearing the recording, responded frankly that she should leave the singing to him and keep on giving the great parties. Her party on December 21, 2000, turned out to be her very last. Ten days after, in

D AV I D PAT R I C K C O L U M B I A early January 2001, Judy was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She was a fighter by nature, but the disease took her from us the following September, three days after 9/11. Almost 15 years later, many of Judy’s friends still recall and reminisce about those wonderful times at her house. Her secret was showing people a good time. At the start of this New Year here, a friend invited me to see Jerry Seinfeld at the Beacon Theater on 74th Street and Broadway. The Beacon is a beautiful theater with an interior that looks like it have been entirely refurbished in its original style as an old-time movie palace that

is physically on Broadway but usually for off-Broadway plays or solo performances. The last time I’d been there was several years ago when Liza Minnelli did a one-woman show (she was great). I’d never seen Seinfeld before. Or his show. It’s true that I’m one of the few. I have heard about it, of course, and I know lots of people who would never miss an episode. I happened to tell another friend that morning that I was going and she broke into some of the stories from his show while laughing about them. My hostess for the show was the same way. She had a hard time getting tickets and ended up paying top dol-

lar (she wouldn’t tell) with a scalper for three. (She only had wanted two, but was required to buy three if she wanted any.) So, when she asked me to be the third, in the seventh row on the aisle, I wondered: “How painful could it be?” I wasn’t especially excited about it, never having seen the man who rose to a stardom where a single name says it all. But I figured it might be something I could write about. Like Michael’s. Well, the place was packed. A very hip crowd, but what some would call an older crowd. Forties and up. But hip, and with it—Noo-Yawkers who are always young in their heads if nowhere else.

The music before the show began was entirely Frank Sinatra singing. When it stopped, a man came out and introduced the evening followed by Seinfeld’s opening act: about 10 minutes from a guy who used to live three blocks from the Beacon but now lives in Santa Monica. He was very good, and very funny. Then came The Man. Seinfeld. In a suit. I can’t remember all the paths he took in his stand-up. Everyone was laughing right away. I was laughing right away. He invites you in and talks to you about this world we’re living in, taking the ordinary and punching it full of constant laughter for us. There were guffaws and

It is always moving on with what is basically a social commentary on American life at this time, for a generation brought up in an era of our greatest prosperity and cultural expansion after the Industrial Revolution. I put it in those rather lofty sounding literary terms because, in a way, Seinfeld kept reminding me of a H.L. Mencken–like character mak-

ing his way through the ordinary and the idiocy and the hilarity in our behaviors as human animals on this planet. I was also amazed how he could run with such apparent ease through a diversity of subjects and incidents, one after another, seamlessly making it all part of the whole: our lives. Yes, it looked like it had just come off the top of his head extemporaneously, but it was complex with lots of twists and turns and outbursts

or flashes of the quotidian and the absurdity of it all. With 3,000 people laughing along with their friend, this man, who is now 61. He first saw a comedian when he was a kid growing up in Massapequa, New York, on The Ed Sullivan Show on a Sunday night. The kid thought, “That’s for me.” And so it was. And so it was for all of us in the Beacon that night. I can’t believe there wasn’t a man or woman in the entire house that

wasn’t really glad to be sitting and taking it all in. I can’t describe the humor except to say I was laughing all the time and, when it was over and we were all leaving the theater, I felt good. Good, like I’d had an actual good time with a man who sees it all very clearly, can talk about it, and leaves you feeling like you’d just taken a happy pill and it had kicked in for the night. Thank you, Seinfeld, and congratulations from all of us!

New Year, more changes. On a cold night early last month, temperatures in the low 20s, Gale Hayman invited me to join her and Christopher Mason for dinner at Swifty’s. It was a perfect spot on a cold winter’s night in midweek in New York. It was very busy with a lot of the regulars from the neighborhoods surrounding. I saw Enid Nemy, Jeanne and Herb Siegel, Mark Gilbertson, Aerin Lauder with Michael Kors and a handsome friend, Tommy Quick (up from Palm Beach and dining with Serena 38 QUEST

It turned out to be an extra special night, though there were many in the restaurant who did not know: it was Swifty’s last night in business. They closed down at the end of the evening. I cannot tell you why; I do not know. No doubt business had slowed down for them, although their catering business was going great guns.

Swifty’s opened in 1998 by Robert Caravaggi and Stephen Attoe, both graduates and exponents of the Glenn Birnbaum restaurant business at Mortimer’s: the great Upper East Side go-to of the 1970s and 1980s, through to the early 1990s. When Glenn died at age 76 in 1998, he left his entire estate to an AIDS charity, including the building that housed the restaurant. It became a multimillion-dollar endowment. It also left Robert and Stephen without a restaurant. But as it happened, two doors south on

Robert and Stephen leased it and, with some backers including several of the regular customers of the old Mortimer’s, they opened a restaurant with a similar menu and atmosphere, naming it Swifty’s. The name “Swifty’s” was a celestial reference, in its way, to Mortimer’s. Glenn had a pug that was a gift from a friend, and it was named “Swifty” af-

D AV I D PAT R I C K C O L U M B I A ter Irving Lazar (a.k.a. Swifty, the Hollywood literary agent who was a frequent customer when he was in town). Swifty, the pug, led a restaurateur’s life—or, rather, a restaurant widow’s life. He was walked three or four times per day by members of the staff and he was housed in the office, which was across the hall from Glenn’s apartment on the floor above Mortimer’s. Swifty only saw his master when his master went into the office where his accountant worked. Glenn was definitely not a dog person.

Another customer and friend of Glenn’s realized that Swifty had no life. This woman had a house in Southampton, New York, and she also had pugs. She suggested to Glenn one summer that he let Swifty spend it by the sea and have some dog friends. Glenn thought that sounded like a good idea, and so it was. When the summer was over, the lady told Glenn the terrible news that the dog had run away! I doubt Glenn was deeply disturbed because he never had a relationship with the dog in the first place. However, I lat-

er learned that Swifty, the dog, was fine and living with the lady with the house in Southampton. And well cared for. Swifty lived in memory beyond his master’s life, of course, in the location between 72nd and 73rd streets and Lexington Avenue. The place had a great run as the neighborhood club-like, cozy restaurant with a menu of comfort food. On its last night, I had the Ginger Carrot Soup and then the Swifty’s Meatloaf with Haricots Verts and French Fries. The original meatloaf menu came from

At lunchtime, there was the Sunset Salad with Lorenzo Dressing, which originated at Quo Vadis (the restaurant owned by Robert’s father). I never ordered it but another major favorite on the menu was the Calves’ Liver with Sauteed Onions and Smoked Bacon. The restaurant was an overnight sensation. It was half the size of Mortimer’s and it had a tiny bar (which is always a negative in a restaurant), and there were two

In the mid-1990s, Liz Smith suggested Swifty’s hold a block party or cocktail party fundraiser to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City. Over the next few years, the Fête de Swifty (so named by our friend Peter Rogers) took over the block by the restaurant, erecting a tent and holding a one-night-only festivity with buffet, bars, music, 42 QUEST

and other diversions. It was very popular and ultimately raised well over a million dollars for the Mayor’s Fund. Throughout the first decade of the 21st century, Swifty’s was one of the most prominent go-to restaurants on the Upper East Side of New York. It was small, with a total seating of not more than 70, but it was welcoming and neighborly in that people dressed up a bit for the occasion: shirt and tie, suit or dress.

It even had its own “character,” according to Zagat’s rating: “If you don’t own a house in the Hamptons, you probably won’t feel at home at this UES neighborhood club where the elite meet for meatloaf and other flatline American standards; outsiders are exiled...” It was amusing to read, although more caricature than reality, for

Swifty’s was always comfortable for anyone who came in for a table. Robert and the staff were not only polite and accommodating but kind and courteous. During those heydays, some of the most famous people in the world came to dine along side the neighbors and whomever stopped in from wherever around the world. It was a good run, but it will be missed by many who enjoyed the pleasure of its camaraderie. u

The Top Doctor Is In by Castle Connolly Top DoctorsÂŽ Q: I have a labral tear in my shoulder. Do I need surgery?

A: A labral tear is a tear of the labrum in the shoulder, a band of connective tissue that surrounds the socket and is torn usually from overhead trauma such as weightlifting or degenerative wear and tear. The need for surgery depends on the patient.

The best approach is to see a board certified orthopedic surgeon that sub-specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder. Spending enough time with the patient to determine the proper diagnosis prior to an imaging test is critical. The surgeon's clinical judgement is by far the most important factor in the final decision for surgery.

When one suffers a labral tear, the problem is micro-instability. Younger patients who are active, especially with overhead activity, will do much better with an arthroscopic repair. Older patients who do not use their arms for overhead activity should try physical therapy first to see how they do. In some cases, those patients do well temporarily, but then fail after they go back to overhead activity. I have found that older patients that enjoy weightlifting have difficulty living with most labral tears.

Elizabeth Taylor and husband Larry Fortensky at their Bel Air home with Nellie, a descendant of the real Lassie, in 1992.


H A R RY B E N S O N

IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY ELIZABETH TAYLOR is probably the greatest film star who ever lived. She certainly believed in marriage. There was no one more glamorous or, for that matter, more controversial. Let’s start with controversial. I remember rushing off to Rome in 1962 without even stopping to pack a bag and found the entire Fleet Street press entourage on the same plane. I was on another assignment at the time and was told to drop everything, go straight to the airport, and get to Rome. The Pope had issued a statement saying that what was going on between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton while she was still married to Eddie Fisher was a disgrace to the “Holy Sacrament of Marriage.” I can’t remember any story in my career in journalism causing more of a sensation nor another Pope making a comment like that. (Eddie and then-wife Debbie Reynolds had been comforting Liz over the death of her husband, Mike Todd, when Liz and

Eddie decided to get married, but you remember all that.) I arrived in Rome and started looking for them. No more than two or three nights afterward “Liz and Dick,” as the press called them, appeared on Via Venato going from sidewalk café to sidewalk café, revealing themselves to the paparazzi. The hunted became the hunters. They were flaunting their relationship and reveling in the attention. During the day, they continued filming Cleopatra, which was at the time the most expensive extravaganza ever made. Over the years, I photographed Miss Taylor with husbands Michael Wilding, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton, Senator John Warner, and Larry Fortensky—and again in the hospital after her brain surgery (I chose to turn down her invitation to go into the operating theater.) I enjoyed every encounter with Elizabeth and will remember her as she was—full of life and love and laughter. u F E B R U A RY 2 0 1 6 6 3


TA K I

REGARDING DONALD TRUMP

While wanting Germany to remain open to refugees fleeing crisis in their homeland, Angela Merkel has also had to deal with negative reprocussions.

THIS IS A CERTAINTY: Donald Trump would be the next Chancellor if he were running for office in Germany. Mass assaults on German women by recently arrived Muslim Arabs have finally managed to change even the inherited-guilty German mind. Let’s take it from the top: Germany took in more than a million Muslims last August and September, and continues to do so fol64 QUEST

lowing Angela Merkel’s reckless policy of open borders and generous free housing and benefits to all migrants, most of whom pose as refugees. Americans are, in general, unaware of the catastrophic E.U. migrant policies. The reason for this is pseudo-reporting by the New York Times and other lefty media who claim dire demographic implosion in Western Europe unless Af-

rican and Middle Eastern swarms are allowed in. Actually, this is the biggest con since those ghastly wind turbines made some people billionaires while turning beautiful regions into horror movie sets. Afghani, Middle Eastern, and African migrants have already managed to overwhelm Europe’s fragile economies, and —in the case of Britain, France, Belgium, and Germany—done


TA K I away with national cultures. (Christmas was the first casualty, as celebrating it was seen as insensitive to other creeds.) And it gets better. Although the assailants in Cologne and Hamburg were young, Arabic-looking, and spoke neither German nor English, media reports failed to stress the fact, not wanting to focus attention to the million plus arrivals. The government was content to play along. The reason for the attacks was a simple one: Muslim men and their culture look down at women, and, unless they are covered up, treat them as sexual objects. After groping the women, insulting them, and calling them whores, these males also stole their mobile telephones and wallets. Then they proceeded to throw firecrackers into the crowds celebrating New Year’s Eve. Do you now get it,

asked for Muslims to be barred from entering the U.S. Islamophobia is now the ultimate sin, as vile as being against diversity or making fun of “trans.” Europe is a strange place nowadays. You have jihadists, some of whom have perpetrated the Paris massacres, who are French and Belgian passport holders, and who travel freely throughout Europe. Yet, these very same people claim allegiance to the caliphate that is ISIS and conspire against the country they have disavowed but live off its free benefits and housing. So what do European parliaments do? They are debating whether to keep Donald Trump out. You also allegedly have “no-go” areas in cities like Brussels, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Marseille, Paris, and London. There are also ar-

to vote time and again, until they voted the way the unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats wanted. My concern is the good ol’ U.S. of A. The bile against Donald Trump proves one thing only: the so-called elite—gays, lesbians, transgenders, African-Americans, Hispanics, the morons who work in television and Hollywood, and illegal immigrants—are all united against the Norman Rockwell, white, Christian, employed, Americans of European descent. The elite are inflexible, doctrinaire, and humorless. They will not permit anyone to not tow the line of political correctness. Crack a joke about anyone unless they’re white, male, and Christian and down you go. Our close ally, Saudi Arabia, stones adulterous women to death, and forbids women to drive a car, yet Iran,

Our columnist, looking at the state of the world and the United States, asks: Of whom are Americans more afraid? ISIS (left) or Donald Trump (right)?

dear Quest readers, why Donald Trump would be a shoo-in? Then, of course, we have the tight little island that’s Britain. Over there, members of Parliament are debating banning “The Donald” of reaching its shores. The reason? That’s an easy one. 500,000 people have signed a petition demanding that he be barred. Trump has committed the ultimate sin: he

eas where gays are either beaten up or given a minute or two to leave. Places where if a woman is wearing a miniskirt or happens to be drunk is insulted or beaten up by “Shariah police.” Personally, I gave up on Europe long ago. I figured out those bastards of the E.U. when they first began to ignore referendums that had gone against more centralism and forced the people

where Jews and Christians enjoy equal rights with Shiite Muslims, is the boogie man. Go figure! So there you have it. The Islamization of Europe is now a fait accompli. If the long shot, Donald Trump, becomes the 45th president, things might turn. But I’m not betting on it. u For more Taki, visit takimag.com. F E B R U A RY 2 0 1 6 6 5


CANTEENS

GRATEFUL FOR GRATO

A BROADWAY OPENING NIGHT: Intermission. The excitement in the air overwhelms. Everyone seems happy just to be there—even the theater owner is smiling broadly. The sweet sound of success…the “Baby, it’s a hit!” kind of moment. Anyone who has experienced that kind of twinkling will immediately recognize the energy and excitement of Palm Beach’s newest restaurant phenomenon, Grato, which opened this January, across the bridge in West Palm Beach. No surprise, though, since Grato is the creation of sensational Palm Beach chef Clay Conley, whose innovative, world-class Buccan is the “no wonder it’s number one” restaurant in the area. My husband, Bill, and I could not wait to try this new kid in town. 66 QUEST

We arrived for our first visit a little before 4:30, when Grato (which is Italian for “grateful”) opens for business. I wanted window light to photograph Clay, and we thought we would be the only ones there. We were not. Even before it opened, people were coming in and within a few minutes the bar was S.R.O. By the time we left, though still too early for normal dining, every seat was filled and the bar was three deep. The next night was utterly crazy jumping! Even though it was still early in the evening, there was a three-hour wait for costumers without reservations, forcing valet parking to turn cars away. Word was out; Grato was a most exciting dining experience. Nah, that was not the word that was circulating around town—it was smokin’ hot!

N A N C Y E LL I S O N RO LL N I C K

BY NANCY ELLISON ROLLNICK


CANTEENS If Buccan is one of Palm Beach’s Upper East Side–style bistros, then Grato is a Tribeca brasserie: open, casual, cavernous, utilities exposed, friendly, and “with it.” The wait staff is young, fun, and smooth. Everything about Grato signaled a really fun evening was about to be had. Tuscan in style but innovative in flavor, Grato offers a simple menu featuring unexpected variations on the usual, predictable Italian fare. The crostini, for example, are priced by the piece, and there are four choices: buffalo ricotta with tomatoes, chicken liver with pickles and radish, beef tartare with horseradish and balsamic onion, and Parmesan fonduta with grilled zucchini and black truffle. We also ordered spicy meatballs cac-

my dream brick-oven pizza—The Dak—and for that may I say, Grato! Named for Dak Kerprich from Pizzeria Oceano in Lantana, Florida, this white pizza took me back to Strausbourg and to Alsatian tarte flambée (or flammeküeche), but instead of crème fraîche, Clay’s wife, Averill, describes this bit of heaven as made with Béchamel with white onion and rosemary. The cheeses are mozzarella curd, provolone, and Parmesan. Slices of pit ham cover the pie and it is finished with olive oil when it comes out of the oven. Other brick-oven pizzas include a Margherita, Italian sausage with fontina, broccoli rabe, Calabrese chilies and herb sauce, eggplant Parmesan, artisan pepperoni, and Hawaiian with spit-roasted pineapple, roasted pork, and

ciatore-style with ground pork, Marsala-braised pork shoulder, and housemade Italian sausage served in a casserole dish with “hunter-style” sauce of diced pancetta, red bell pepper, onion, garlic…like I said—spicy. The pasta is housemade as well, and as a measure for great pasta dishes, our Italian guest ordered Bucatini Carbonara. The test? Would Grato’s carbonara have the egg yolk sitting on top of the pasta or would it be stirred in? Test passed; this miner’s pasta made with ham and bacon had its egg delicately placed on top to break with the first bite. Also ordered? An awesome porchetta—rotisserie pork shoulder with polenta in a creamy mustard sauce. It really won’t matter how good this menu is for I have found

pickled jalapeños, but my heart belongs to Dak. We never made it to the dessert. Maybe next time I will manage the bourbon-butter pecan or cocoa gelato. Until then…ciao, Dak. u This page, from bottom left: An assortment of crostini, for starters; a must-have pizza, The Dak, is Béchamel-based and topped with onions and ham; star chef Clay Conley.

REALTY FOR THE CITY’S ELITE STAN PONTE knows the market in New York, having served its elite for two decades. Quest chats with the real estate expert about what the city has to offer in luxury: Q: Who is the ultra–high net worth (or “UHNW”) buyer? SP: I am fortunate to be a broker in Manhattan, which attracts more ultra–high net worth individuals than any other market in the world. Primarily, these buyers are from the worlds of finance, technology, pharmaceuticals, and entertainment.

real estate. Fifth Avenue and Park Avenue are not giving up their claims as the epitome of New York luxury, but they’re being joined by the newly coined “Billionaire’s Row” on 57th Street as well as downtown neighborhoods such as Madison Square Park, The Highline, West Village, and the Gold Coast of “lower” Fifth Avenue. What’s next? The revitalization of FiDi and the massive construction at the up-and-coming Hudson Yards.

Q: What is the “UHNW” buyer looking for? SP: This is a very individual question, as everyone has their own unique criteria for lifestyle and priorities. (Some of my technology clients put a high premium on privacy and are not looking for a trophy but, rather, something understated with clean aesthetics.) That said, one constant is a “forever view” as the continued growth of new skyscrapers is changing the panoramas of the city. Apartments in prominent, prime locations with unobstructed views are desirable and carry a hefty premium.

Q: What distinguishes you from other firms? SP: I’m only as good as the company I keep and, by choosing to be affiliated with Sotheby’s International Realty, I offer my clients 20 years of Manhattan expertise. Additionally, I have modeled my business to reflect the same high level of service that my clients expect from their private bankers and financial advisors. My goal is simple: I want to be regarded as a long-term real estate advisor, which means that I’m focused on the relationships that are built based on trust, professionalism, and respect with my clients as well as their friends and families. We call this practice “Generational Transactions.” u

OCCASIONS

WHEN IT COMES to New York weddings, there’s no shortage of iconic buildings, romantic spaces, or breathtaking views, which can make settling on a venue for the big day a labor of love. But when a single venue combines all three, the choice becomes—like the view itself—crystal clear. Originally opened in 1934, the Rainbow Room was the first restaurant to be located in a high-rise building and remained for decades the highest-elevated restaurant in the United States. Designed at the time by architect Wallace K. Harrison of Associated Architects and interior designer Elena Bachman-Schmidt in classic ’30s style, the space recently underwent an extensive restoration by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, who preserved the landmarked dance floor and introduced a new cocktail lounge, Bar SixtyFive at Rainbow Room (the perfect spot, incidentally, for a wedding proposal). In all its revived glory, the Rainbow Room is a stunning, glamorous wedding venue that sits at the top of Rockefeller Center. Nestled within the beautiful New York City skyline, the space features immersive, panoramic views of Manhattan and beyond. Special touches, like a selection of caviar and Champagne that awaits each couple upon arrival at the Rainbow Room wedding suite, sustain an air of romance. From their first step through the doors, guests are truly mesmerized by the stunning beauty of the room, which features sparkling crystal curtains that perfectly frame the view to the revolving, landmarked dance floor. Since the view beyond the faceted crystal curtains into the New York City skyline is ever-changing, so are the backdrops for the day, 74 Q U E S T

76 QUEST

CO U RTE S Y O F H AC K E R B O AT CO M PA NY

BY ALEX TRAVERS


NAME

IT WAS 1891 when a 14-year-old named John Ludwig Hacker, a native of Detroit, set out to construct his first rowboat— entirely by hand. The rowboat was Hacker’s calling; luck and providence, it seemed, were with him. His interest in ships of all kinds led him to take night courses in the art and science of boat design, and he would soon go on to be a preeminent naval architect, eventually creating the Hacker Boat Company in 1908. He

built for utility, and for style too, and for the glory of achieving something that’s never been achieved before. In 1911, Hacker designed the Kitty Hawk, a boat with a stepped-hydroplane hull that immediately set new speed records. He continued to innovate, and by the 1930s, Hackers were regularly purchased for their sleek aesthetic appeal and speed. Today, they continue to be loved by boating enthusiasts all over the world.

MONTH 2013 00


These pleasure crafts are the art forms of the boating industry, and the ingenuity of Hacker-Craft’s architects and master craftspeople is cherished, much like the tailors of Savile Row. The boats are entirely customized, the handmade virtue still beloved. In fact, it’s these time-honored rituals that make Hackers so desirable. As with other luxury items whose appeal is their pristine oneof-a-kindness, Hackers are head-turners. A master boat builder with 40 years’ experience, who works with the production manager, helps oversee the quality of all the work—the construction, the sanding, the varnishing, the gilding. And the results are stunning. Who would ever imagine that a boat would show such beautiful colors? Or cut through the water so gracefully? If these are some particular hooks for owning a Hacker, there are also the men and women behind the brand, those who work to keep their rare tradition alive. Erin Badcock, vice president of operations at Hacker-Craft, is particularly proud of the brand’s craftspeople. “An important part of our story is our legacy, and our team today.” Badcock grew up spending summers on Lake George with her family. “Hacker-Craft boats were being built on the northern end of lake for as long as I can remember,” she recalls. Her father got involved in the business around 2008. When Badcock graduated college, she started working for him. “It seemed like a natural fit when I ended up here.” Once she began work, she started to develop an appreciation for the building process and construction of the boats. She explained that the veteran craftspeople often train younger indi-

viduals in the art of boat building, a class not offered at many colleges or trade schools today. She also said that a HackerCraft naval architect could sit down with a client and design a boat from scratch. Then she added an insightful point: because Hacker-Craft builds wood boats, they don’t have the restrictive tooling needs most fiberglass boats require. “We’re able to get really creative.” Today, Hacker-Craft’s boating facilities are located in Ticonderoga, New York. They have showrooms in Silver Bay, New York, and in Dania Beach in Florida. To help with domestic and international sales, they also showcase their boats at many South Florida yacht shows, like Yachts Miami Beach. Lately, Hacker-Craft has worked with several superyacht owners to develop utility tenders, boats that allow passengers to easily travel from land to where their yachts are moored. Hacker-Craft has focused on that market over the last few years, and it’s paying off now. Indeed, Hackers offer a luxurious alternative to inflatable utility tenders, and, like other tenders, Hackers can be stored onboard the yachts. That’s helped build relationships with yacht brands. “We’ve been recognized by some of the superyacht builders and owners,” says Badcock of Hacker’s tenders, “and we’re gaining more market share there.” “We have a great story to tell,” continues Badcock, “and certainly a tradition and a history that goes into each and every boat. We’re able to put out a top-notch, quality product that still lends itself to the traditions of the classic era.” u For more information, visit hackerboat.com.

compelling market. Real estate is a relationship business and, at the end of the day, I love people. It’s my passion getting to know people, their lives, and how they want to live them.

In this exceptional residence, the client was downsizing from a large home to a condominium. Garrigues was able to incorporate all the favorite pieces that she and her client had found during their years of working together. “We decided that the art work and the ocean were the main focus, so we kept the beautiful Venetian plaster walls in order to show of her fabulous art collection,” Garrigues explains. A bright painting by Mark Rothko is perfectly placed to add a huge splach of color in an otherwise muted corner. “We used two of her off white sofas, but recovered some of her existing pieces with our favorite colors. Loving pillows, we found some contemporary and Asian prints to finish off a cleaner yet interesting interior.” Small and careful touches like these are why Garrigues’ clients rave about the resluts she produces with them. “My client loves her new home and that makes me very happy!” u

THE NEWLY RENOVATED Fairholme is a dazzling, historic, oceanfront estate that is superbly sited on 4.3 acres of Newport’s legendary Gilded Age coastline with 425 feet of ocean frontage. From the grand Horace Trumbauer–designed ballroom to the ample spaces dedicated to staff (and the efficient performance of their duties), the manor house reflects a bygone era of luxury and refinement. The Tudor Revival masterpiece, constructed in 1875, lies at the heart of an impressive compound containing a picturesque carriage house, greenhouses, and an exquisitely tiled swimming pool—complete with a luxurious cabana overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Introduced by graceful gates and a park-like setting, the 20,000-square-foot manor boasts a façade that—with its elaborate half-timbering, richly textured surface, and gothic tripartite entrance porch—conceals the bright, relaxed elegance of the interior. Silk-covered walls, delicately molded plasterwork, and a grand limestone fireplace blend together in the entrance hall featuring soft harmonies of color and light. Across the room, brilliant flashes of sun, sky, and sea pour in through leaded glass windows and doors. This space is the organizing principal of the house, immediately establishing the main axis lines and underscoring the immense clarity of the floorplan. The ceilings on the first floor are 12-feet, with the exception of the ballroom (which rises to an impressive 14-feet). To the west of the entrance hall is the grand salon, with 90 QUEST

its immense floor-to-ceiling windows and show-stopping fireplace, as well as a receiving room with marble fireplace, and a paneled library, with a stately carved wood fireplace. Beyond the salon lies the graceful, barrel-vaulted, Horace Trumbauer–designed ballroom, which can comfortably seat up to 120 people: the only private house in Newport capable of accommodating an indoor dinner party of that size. To the east of the entrance hall is a delicately tinted dining room. With magnificent ocean views, diamond-paned windows, and an elaborate marble fireplace, the stately proportions are generous enough for formal dinners yet light enough in scale for intimate gatherings.

Julia and Bill were married in a ceremony at the Bok Tower Gardens, a National Historic Landmark in Lake Wales, Florida, which was designed by Edward W. Bok and Frederick Law Olmstead, Jr. A reception for 270 guests followed at a family home at the Mountain Lake Club, also in Lake Wales. Julia wore a dress by Oscar de la Renta and was walked down the aisle by her father, Andrew Cushman. Even though the generator gave out after the couple’s first dance, to Van Morrison’s “Have I Told You Lately,” the 13-piece band continued into the night after cleverly rewiring to the main house’s power supply. The lights under the soaring white peaked tent never did go back on, but guests didn’t even realize the power was out thanks to a sea of candlelight, which made for an even more romantic setting.

The groom and groomsmen wore sky-blue espadrilles (with matching sky-blue bow ties on the groomsmen). Guests broke out into a choreographed dance to “Far L’amore” as the newlyweds came out of the chapel, kicking off a night that culminated with a jump in the ocean. The couple organized four amazing days of celebration, which included boating, swimming, and travel around the islands, for the 150 friends and family members in attendance.

FOR SOME, it’s a time to embark on the first of many sports-filled

adventures; for others, an escape to long stretches of secluded white beaches, where the only physical exertion might include an occasional dip in the sea. No matter what form it takes or where you choose to travel for it, your honeymoon should be about you. There are no more compromises to be made with the mother of bride about the invitation list, no second-guessing the merits of a big, billowy wedding dress versus a more contemporary and streamlined look. The cake will have been ordered, and eaten, too—be it vanilla custard or red velvet. Certain honeymoon destinations have a tendency to come into vogue and then slowly fade from view for a decade or few. Others—like the French Riviera and Italy, the original honeymoon spots—only seem to grow more popular with time. In traveling the globe to settle upon the suggestions offered here, it quickly became clear that no matter where a couple might wish to land—in a bustling urban capital or by a gently rolling sea—hotels and resorts everywhere are more poised than ever to go that extra mile in making your stay sweet like honey. u
