Vox Populi: The O'Shaughnessy Files

By William O’Shaughnessy | Go to book overview

FOUR SEASONS ROAST:
50TH ANNIVERSARY

The Four Seasons Restaurant in the Seagram’s Building in
Manhattan is one of America’s most famous and enduring
dining venues. And its interior is an actual New York City
landmark. (My remarks at the Landmark Designation
Hearing can be found in one of my earlier books.) On May
5, 2009, this venerable institution celebrated its fiftieth
anniversary with a charity “roast” for the benefit of
“Meals on Wheels.” It was a glittering and fun evening,
even by the standards of this fabled restaurant.

Welcome to a very special New York evening.

We gather on this spring night to celebrate the spectacular fiftyyear run of this glorious high-class saloon.

How wonderful it is to be here, and for a good cause: Citymealson-Wheels.

So permit me to thank you for the gift of your presence and the generosity of your purse.

We thank our hosts: Julian Niccolini and Alex Von Bidder, who’ve rounded up 250 of their nearest and dearest for this sold-out historic evening.

We eagerly anticipate their comeuppance at the hands of some of the most vivid and powerful among our well-founded neighbors in New York.

Your presence also honors those wonderful Four Seasons hands who have bestowed their loyalty and devotion on this fabled landmark venue over so many years: Tradeep, Lawrence, Pedro, Italo, Giuseppe, Charlie, John the Artist, George—all of them who make us feel special and welcome, the marvelous characters whose industry and dedication bless the joint.

Our roasters are surrogates for those same Four Seasons staffers who have been waiting for this moment when Alex and Julian will be put on the rack.
