And on the same night
The show at the Friars Club was all about the food and two legendary kitchens united to create a culinary event that got a four star rating and standing ovation from the audience. The lore, lure and legacy of Le Cirque was celebrated at the club and a classic four course dinner prepared under the direction of Le Cirque chef and CEO/owner Mauro Maccioni. After the dinner, radio personality and president/editorial director at Whitney Media, William O’Shaughnessy interviewed Mauro and Carlo Mantica CEO, Le Cirque International Restaurant Group.
Dean of the Friars Larry King was at his “table at Le Cirque” in the Friars as was Fox 5’s Ernie Anastos.
