News broke this morning that Keith McNally was heeding an anti-bathroom-attendant rant of Business Insider’s Henry Blodget: The restaurateur announced that he would cut the jobs of three bathroom attendants who work grueling days inside the storied Spring Street brasserie’s lavatory. But the restaurateur now e-mails First We Feast to say the porters will remain onboard as employees of Balthazar (or set up elsewhere in McNally land), though their work will take them for the first time beyond the bathroom stalls. As McNally writes, “They are lovely people and I’d like to work with them forever.” [FWF, Earlier]
