BuzzFeed, DuJour Media Group Form Strategic Partnership - Posted December 13, 2013
A small milestone has been added to BuzzFeed's inexorable, awesome-in-19-different-ways march towards world media domination. Starting next spring, the website and DuJour Media Group will begin cross-posting content. From today's announcement: DuJour Media will run BuzzFeed's regular "Tell Us About Your ... [FishbowlLA]

David Zinczenko on His New 'High-Profile Life' and the Real Story Behind His Leaving Rodale - Posted May 8, 2013
I've been looking forward to today's Michael's lunch for quite a while. David Zinczenko, who I met in this very dining room many years ago, was joining me with his business partner Stephen Perrine... [FishbowlLA]

Joe Kernen Settles a Bet, Plus the Return of Michael Wolff - Posted March 6, 2013
Threats of yet another winter storm (We're begging for mercy!) didn't keep the faithful from Michael's today. In fact, the dining room was even more crowded than usual as some of the city's biggest hot shots cooled their heels at the bar and in the lounge as they waited to be... [FishbowlLA]

Naomi Campbell and Her Supermodel Castmates Dish About Their New 'Face' - Posted February 6, 2013
We were more than a little disappointed to learn that we missed Dan Stevens aka Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey when he lunched with producer Paula Wagner at Table One on Monday. (Doesn't he know Wednesday is the day for lunch at Michael's?) Luckily, today's oh-so-fabulous lunch with the cast of... [FishbowlLA]

Sandra Lee Serves Up a New Magazine and Novel; Hoda Kotb Celebrates Book Number Two with Today Show Gang - Posted January 16, 2013
Every time I think it can't get anyone more Fellini-esque at 55th and Fifth, another Wednesday at Michael's proves me wrong. All that was missing today was a lion tamer and clown shot out of a cannon. There were so many 'acts' going on simultaneously I hardly knew where to look. While... [FishbowlLA]

Spike Lee, Jon Meacham and a Real Housewife of New York City - Posted May 9, 2012
It's been a big week for movie moguls at Michael's. Harvey Weinstein was here on Monday, and Spike Lee showed up for the second time in a six days. Who needs Hollywood? Besides the slew of 'producers' cooking up their next big deal over... [FishbowlLA]

A Party For Kate White and A Madoff Sighting - Posted March 21, 2012
It's the rare Wednesday when I don't leave Michael's with a fistful of business cards from some striver or media maven intent on making an impression. That's why it's so newsworthy when the exact opposite occurs. Today was the rare occasion when a famous -- make that infamous -- name did... [FishbowlLA]

A Party for Emily Blunt & Ewan McGregor; Katie Couric Holds Court - Posted March 7, 2012
It's been a pretty wild winter at Michael's. Far from suffering from the seasonal doldrums, the place has been operating on full tilt every Wednesday with a fresh array of A-listers that always make for some pretty good people watching. Today was no exception. Besides the jam packed dining room filled with... [FishbowlLA]

Dan Rather, Steve Kroft and An Encore Appearance by John Legend - Posted February 29, 2012
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. "Oh well," I thought, "next time." Imagine my surprise when the singer magically appeared in the dining room today and even shot... [FishbowlLA]

Katie Couric, Star Jones & the Fashion Week Flock - Posted February 15, 2012
The media A-list has decided that winter is over (did it ever start?) and came out of hibernation in a major way at Michael's today. Every square inch of the dining room was occupied by boldface names of every description from social swans (Amy Fine Collins... [FishbowlLA]

Manhattan's A-List Turns Out for Harvey Weinstein's Giants Pep Rally - Posted February 1, 2012
I've been covering Wednesday's at Michael's for five years and have never seen anything like the head-spinning scene that unfolded there today. Harvey Weinstein and Stev... [FishbowlLA]

Caroline Manzo, Morgan Fairchild, Plus HarperCollins Fetes William Boyd - Posted November 2, 2011
One of the things I love most about chronicling the Wednesday scene at Michael's is the random celeb sightings that seem to come out of left field. On offer today: television stars of the past and present that represent the changing (and fickle?) tastes of the viewing public. When none other... [FishbowlLA]

Matt Lauer, Harold Ford Jr. & Neil Sedaka - Posted July 13, 2011
-- DIANE CLEHANE If the scene at Michael's today is any indication, summer vacations are so 2010. The place was full of magazine honchos (the cafeteria at Hearst must have been empty), media mavens (Does Jason Binn... [FishbowlLA]

Mary Higgins Clark, The Hiltons And The Media Mob - Posted June 1, 2011
-- DIANE CLEHANE The sweltering heat (wasn't it just snowing last week?) didn't keep the regulars away from Michael's today. The dining room was jam packed with authors, agents and media mavens all deep in conversation about who knows what. From the looks of things, the power lunch crowd here is ge... [FishbowlLA]

Staff Changes At Los Angeles Confidential - Posted April 22, 2009
Los Angeles Confidential is a lifestyle magazine that targets the affluent, which is why we don't read it. We're not supposed to. But clearly someone must be checking it out, as the publication recently added to their staff. Sari Tuschman... [FishbowlLA]
