Le Cirque Has (Literally) Gone to the Dogs


A Grub Street reader was upset to read today’s “Page Six” item about Marco Maccioni letting his “giant” mutt, Darla, eat at the bar at Le Cirque (something that also didn’t sit well with a customer who had just shelled out $424 for dinner). Says our tipster: “I was having a private event at Le Cirque, and I asked them if I could bring my wonderful dogs (two well-behaved pit-bull mixes). I’d bring them in the freight entrance and keep them upstairs. They said, ‘Absolutely not — we’re a fine-dining restaurant.’ I’m sure they don’t turn [away] Joan Rivers and Spike.” Woof!
