The Party to (Literally) End All Parties at Le Bernardin


Le Bernardin party

There are book parties, there are banquets, and then there was the event held last night at Le Bernardin for Melanie Duneas My Last Supper. From the start, you knew it was going to be out of control: Rather than entering the front door, guests were led, la the Copa scene in Goodfellas, through winding back stairs, hallways, and the kitchen, where winged dancing girls, identical twin Lenny Kravitz look-alikes, and even a Grim Reaper awaited. Eric Riperts meal was an astounding sleigh ride from a Puerto Rican whole hog to the most ethereal escolar imaginable, and included both a D.J. and cabaret performer Lady Rizo singing White Wedding on top of a piano, while dancers in veils and thongs frolicked underneath. The less said about the after-party, which inevitably ended with Daniel Boulud dancing on top of the banquet table, the better. But enough talk. On to the slideshow.
