Paul Caine Sounds Off on Radio's Next Act - Posted October 16, 2013
It was wall-to-wall mavens and moguls at Michael's today with EICs of those swanky design books (Architectural Digest, House Beautiful and Veranda) holding court in one corner of the dining room (I guess living well really is the best revenge), while the usual bold-faced names and social swans exc...

David Pecker Holds Court; David Zaslav Jumps the Shark - Posted July 31, 2013
It's been a head-spinning summer of celebrity sightings and media maven mashups at 55th and Fifth, but today at Michael's the mogul quotient was completely off the charts. I knew it was going to be one of those days when Discovery Communications honcho David Za... [GalleyCat]

Every time I think it can't get anyone more Fellini-esque at 55th and Fifth, another Wednesday at Michael's proves me wrong.

I got several emails last week when I was on vacation alerting me to John Legend's presence in the dining room. "You're missing him!" texted one faithful "Lunch" reader.
