Okay, Fine, We’ll Tell You

The Observer outs Todd English as the smokin' chef who hosted a ciggie soiree at his new place, the Libertine, last night. Jason Pomeranc says of the lush lounge’s opening at his Gild Hall, near Wall Street: “It is our duty as hoteliers and restaurateurs to provide the inns and watering holes where people can celebrate their victories and mourn their losses.” We’ll smoke to that! Guest of a Guest has photos, and here, for the heck of it, is what was served off the menu last night before English, Pomeranc, et al took the party upstairs to a penthouse suite.
