Broker Bait in East Harlem: Rao's Spaghetti and Meatballs

Why don't publicists plant items like this with Curbed? From Page Six:

The owners of Rao's ? the clubby East Harlem eatery where you have to know someone to get a table ? had a secret weapon to ensure a good turnout at last week's broker-only preview of the 22 luxury apartments upstairs called Rao's City Views. Word spread that the Corcoran Group had secured a supply of Rao's world famous spaghetti and meatballs. "Brokers go where there is food," explained one insider. Suddenly, everyone wanted to see the apartments, which are renting for $2,200 to $6,000 a month. "The big question was, if you get an apartment there, do you get a table? And of course, the answer is no."
Okay, back to the issue at hand: item planting. Goddamnit, we want them! Seriously, we'll take anything: Shvo helps old lady across street. Barbara Corcoran to house kittens in new Red Hook pad. Try us. You'll like us!
