Over at eGullet, celebrity chef/author/gallavant Anthony Bourdain posts about his recent dinner at Masa [Time Warner Center, 212-823-9800], which involves high-end restaurant incest of the finest sort:
The surprise comes when the sommelier from Per Se shows up at Masa?and proceeds to serve us one absolutely stunning wine after another?right through the meal. So there we are...eating at the most expensive restaurant in the country?with wine service being provided by the best restaurant in the country. Masa, in the spirit of fellowship, joining us in a glass at each of the numerous appearances by the sommelier.And people said this whole Time Warner Center synergy thing wasn't going to work out.
