There may well have been hair in Lady Gaga’s food at the Oak Room this week, because she wore a coat made of it to dinner. After her meal, she sang at the bar for her fellow diners, because that’s the sort of thing she does. And while it wasn’t in her food exactly, poor Katie Couric dealt with seeing a cockroach on the banquette near her table at Shun Lee for lunch. She tweeted her horror; restaurant staff soon squashed the issue quite literally.
