Paper Magazine says Gramercy Tavern chef-partner (and James Beard nominee) Michael Anthony is "resting comfortably at home with his family after emergency open-heart surgery at Beth Israel hospital." A rep from the restaurant tells the magazine that Anthony "was diagnosed with an aortic dissection, a tear in the wall of the aorta, on Friday morning." He went into open-heart surgery, which was successful, and is now recuperating. Get well soon, chef. [Paper Mag via Zagat]
