That image you see is evidently what happens when you invite Eric Ripert over for dinner and he’s put on sauce duty for the steak au poivre. Jay McInerney snapped the shot and posted it on Twitter this afternoon, so we’re guessing this didn’t end in some sort of Hamptons inferno, and you’ll notice that Ripert’s BFF Anthony Bourdain doesn’t seem too concerned about the whole thing.
