It was on this day in 1932 that Sirio Maccioni was born in Tuscany. The future restaurateur opened first at the Mayfair Hotel, in 1974, after thirteen years in New York. An empire followed. Today, the Le Cirque impresario turns 81, and even though he’s apparently had his cake, you can still go and wish him well. [Sirio Maccioni/Facebook]
